Reverse Gear Selection

30 November 2011 - 12:41 PM

I'm struggling to get reverse gear on my 2009 1.8 focus style, the gear seems to locate fine but I get the usual grating of gears when I engage the clutch, I might try 3 or 4 times before I get the gear correctly but even when I am successful it feels no different to the previous unsuccessful attempts. Anybody had similar problems? the car still has a year left on its warranty so I can always take it to the dealers to see what they think.Might just need a bit of adjustment.

Anybody got problems with their focus misting up, I'm on my second Focus style and both have misted up badly. I was hoping my first car was a one off but unfortunately this one is just as bad. When I leave work mine is always the one with the most condensation in the car park. Anyone got a solution?
