Ford Warranty - Gearbox Towing Upgrade

21 January 2012 - 11:03 AM

Has anyone else had the clutch, gearbox warranty fix done by Ford, vehicle had excessive clutch judder and Ford fitted new flywheel, clutch and rebuilt the gearbox with revised 1st and 2nd gear ratios (as per the Mk3 facelift) and if so have you had any ongoing gearbox issues? The gearbox in my 2009 Wildtrak has been removed 5 times by Ford in the last 6 months!!!


4 X 4 Function

Can anyone confirm what type of diff is fitted in the front axle of the Mk3 Ranger. The reason for asking is that when I engage 4x4 on loose surface only the front n/s wheel is spinning with no drive to the o/s front. My Ford dealer informs me this is normal as it is only fitted with an open diff on the front so acts as a normal differential.

Would welcome any advice.


2009 Ranger Wildtrak

Has anyone else experienced problems with the Limited Slip Diff? I tried to to drive on wet grass recently and discovered that o/s rear wheel was spinning and no drive was being transmitted to the N/S wheel. I have jacked the rear end off the ground and when I spin one wheel the other dosen't move. My understanding is that when you turn one wheel the other should turn in the same direction. Would appreciate any advice.

The tyres on my Wildtrak will need replacing in the next few weeks and I would welcome any feedback from any other forum users regarding suitable replacements for the standard Bridgestone 245 x 70 x 16. I am looking for a tyre which is primarily suitable for road use and am currently considering the Avon Ranger TSE tyre.
