I have noticed this. There is a groan while reversing. I also have issues getting into reverse gear, sometimes taking several attempts. This a caused me to grind the clutch several times thinking the car is in gear when it's not...

Have you experienced is too?

best to push clutch and keep your hand on the gear and slowly bring up the clutch it should pop into place without grinding.

Hi, to the OP, where exactly does the groan come from, is it from the gearbox or is it from somewhere else as It really would help if you were more specific. A groan from the rear might just indicate it is the hill assist...

When i've had it, it doesn't matter how slowly i bring the clutch up, it won't work until i select 1st and change back! It's quite weird. It only tends to happen on slight slopes for me though (i don't think it's the hill assist though, the car simply does not select the reverse gear). It's usually not an issue since i tend to have the parking brake on when i'm going into reverse anyway until i'm ready to get moving, so the car doesn't start rolling anywhere.

 

This has happened to me about 3 times over 1400 miles though, so not a big deal. It's certainly not a common occurance thus far.

What works for some doesn't always work for others.  Ford did change my gearbox oil and did some other stuff when i complained about it the first year.  Even though it continued afterwards (But not as bad) i just started reading and taking the advice of others.  the slowly bring up clutch while pushing the gear stick into the slot further seems to work for me.

I got a video of it today and managed to make it sound worse. The higher I lift the clutch and the more I push it to go backwards it groans more. But if i don't lift clutch as much it don't moan. Seems like its coming from gearbox. Its a definate whine though .

 

I've had this since I had the car but until it gets louder/worse I'll'll hold off taking it in. Not really sure if the noise is supposed to happen or not.

How do I upload videos ?

Hi, I have the same problem groaning only just started to notice this after 600 miles.

 

This only seems to happen when the engine warmed up to normal operating temp and in reverse uphill.

 

No crunching yet.

 

I did have the same sort of sound on one of my previous fiesta's back on a 58 plate never found out what it was only kept it for a year zetec 1.25 traded in for zetec 1.4 never had it on this

Took this to the garage the other day and its definitely an issue with the clutch. Was diagnosed by the mechanic as clutch whirling as I have started to smell burning now from it in the past month or two this goes to show the issue is getting worse.

I've got the same on mine, the clutch is very high for 6,000 miles, also have a horrendous vibrating/resonating noise between 2,400-2,500rpm.
