grinding first gear

2 posts in this topic

:( hi guys, i am in the process of buying a ford focus 2002 cl td di,

i have taken one for a test drive today, the car drove lovely apart from the first gear selection,

when the car was stationary no problem, but when the car is driven, on selecting first gear it

was a struggle to get in and would grind, has anyone got ant ideas what this may be,

also another one i had a test drive, in every so often the speedo would drop to zero for a 20 seconds or so and then back, the garage said it is a common fault on the car,(this one is a 1.6 petrol).

according to the garage it will be a speedo sensor, 22 quid. they can do the job for me or they can knock 200 quid if i take it as it is. any ides of any other points to look for when buying a focus would be appreciated as well, thanks guys
