I'm struggling to get reverse gear on my 2009 1.8 focus style, the gear seems to locate fine but I get the usual grating of gears when I engage the clutch, I might try 3 or 4 times before I get the gear correctly but even when I am successful it feels no different to the previous unsuccessful attempts. Anybody had similar problems? the car still has a year left on its warranty so I can always take it to the dealers to see what they think.Might just need a bit of adjustment.

Have something to contribute?

Wee tip - if it doesn't go in properly, pop it into first gear then back into reverse, that should help ;)

If problems still there then take it back to the dealer.
