In Topic: Fiesta Mk7 Clutch Problem?

08 October 2012 - 07:36 PM

I have the same problem with the 59 plate fiesta edge I have, have you noticed that the gears are okaish when the engine is cold, I took it too ford and basically they said there was nothing wrong with it, I have only done 15000 miles, I have found the solution, the gearbox is basically the same as the previous model this was a known fault, the gear linkage is connected to a spigot with a plastic moveable band that after time, starts too stick, apparently the replacement of this arm and plastic bit is the best solution, other peeps have just greased up the arm and slightly bored out the plastic bit and this helps and works, I have not done this yet, but you could try under warranty if you still have it, it wont be your clutch, its just a known fault that ford dont want to know about, I wont be buying another ford after this, because every ford I have had has been a mechanical arsehole including this piece of s/*t im driving now!

I have a 59 plate fiesta that this happens to, I took it too ford because im under warranty, they said theres nothing wrong and that it is a positive feeling gearbox (load of bollox) the head mechanic explained too me that the new shape fiestas have the same gearbox as the older mark fiesta with a couple of modifications, which means its still prone too this problem, the gear linkage that goes into the gearbox has a plastic spline on it can start too stick if faulty or needs replacing, this problem gets worse as the engine and gearbox get hotter, apparently ford just replace the whole part, but some people who are mechanicaly minded, have just regreased the spline and refitted and it works. If you go to the garage to be fixed apparently it is not expensive to be fixed, Im going too wait for mine to get worse, hopefully i can get it fixed before my warranty runs out in december.

Yes it is the car was registered 30/12/09, perhaps just the arm needs changing, ford only seem to have a 1 year warranty in the service book, I take it fords warranty for two years after is limited.
