Gear Lever Return Spring - Mk1 Focus 1.8
Posted 04 February 2012 - 12:45 PM
Question is, Where's the cheapest place to buy the part and would anyone know the part number? I contacted ford but the bloke didn't seem to know what I meant and was trying to sell me the entire Assembly of the gear lever.
Any help much appreciated as usual, Cheers.

It's a common problem with the longer side of the spring snapping off.
It's pretty easy to take apart and only slightly more difficult to get back in but all in all can be done in 15 mins.
I paid pretty much the same from a local parts supplier. Just over £6 from what I remember.

Followed this guide: http://www.passion-f...urn spring .pdf
Literally took longer to take the gear knob off than it did to replace the spring.
All working again, Thanks guys.
PS I did find an unused plug under the centre console, Aparently this is for traction control? Would it work if I just buy a button to plug onto it?

Can't help with the TC question, but I'd definitely be interested in finding out.
