1St Gear Judder

9 posts in this topic

Has anyone ever experienced gearbox judder in 1st gear? i have a friend that has a ford focus 2010 1.6 zetec model and it sometimes judder in 1st gear when he is trying to take off but not all the time, it might judder not being the correct word but just to give you a better explanation when he is trying to take off you can feel the biting point much more than any other car it has only 15000 miles. any suggestions?

Could be a worn gearbox mount. Does the judder not occur at any other time?

No just when it's in 1st gear, is not exactly as a judder as i said before, is more like you are feeling the biting point much more than any other car. He took the car today to 3 different places they checked it and they told him that there is nothing to worry because that is how they made the clutch. Every clutch is different.
