Gear Box Issues

8 posts in this topic

Well, looks like I won't be driving a Mondeo for much longer....actually not driving it at all at the moment. Was on my way to Loch Ness towing my caravan when it started to be impossible to select 1st or 2nd gear which is really bad when it comes to stopping and having to try and drive off in 3rd gear on a hill.....as a result, now 5th and reverse gear have died too. I suspect the gear box and due to age of car I don't think I will get this repaired. Currently stuck on a campsite at Loch Ness until can sort out a different car.....

That's not good mate, has it been playing up beforehand?

sounds like it could be the gear selector, might not necessarily be the box itself?

The first gear has been sticky for a while but I thought that just came with age....well, too late now...had guy out to look at it and the gearbox is definitely gone, so the car will follow I'm afraid. The costs are far too much for a 15 year old. :(

Used gearbox, you could pick that up for a couple of hundred quid and have it fitted around that?

Thanks for the replies guys....even if I could pick up a gearbox for a couple of hundred quid, still need to get fitted and that's really not worth the hassle. Husband is looking at few cars at the moment and will get it up the road for the weekend. Mondeo will unfortunately go to the nearest scrappy.

Yes, that may be the best, most cost-effective thing to do
