Help For A Friend
Posted 15 February 2013 - 07:07 PM
A friend of mine has a fiesta mk6 and is having some gearbox/clutch issues I hope someone could shed some light on. From what he's told me changing gears up to 3rd, 4th and 5th has become stiff. Same when changing down. It doesn't happen when the car is off, nor when the engine is running but the car is stationary. There's no crunching involved though.
His car is going to be looked at on Monday and he'd not like to go in without a clue as to what it would be. So what do you think could be the most likely culprit? Gear linkages? Clutch failure? Anything else?

Hey... No asking for advice for people who arent members of the forum!
I've told him to join! Honest! Haha.
I'm hoping its not clutch dragging, want it to be as cheap as possible for him. Gearbox oil is something I hadn't thought about. Sadly he doesn't have the tools or space to check for himself. Thankfully he's taking it to a family friend so won't get ripped off!

Apparently everything returned to normal on Sunday night. It's reckoned that a bit of dirt got in but has now worked itself out. Cheers for the help though!
