Gearbox Oil Change

23 August 2014 - 10:41 PM

Hi members, i have a 2006 cmax 1.6 tdci zetec with 5 speed manual gearbox. Gearchange is intermittently notchy. I want to check the gearbox oil level and to change it too.Please can anyone provide a link so i can see exactly where the level and drain plugs are. Also i think there is a filler plug on top of the gearbox with access made easier by removing air filter box, but this is unconfirmed. I need more information as i dont have a workshop manual.

Pollon Filter Change

09 August 2014 - 09:38 AM

Hello members, i recently bought a cmax but the owners manual and radio (ford6000cd) manual were missing.I want to replace the cabin air filter and have been viewing utube videos.Apparently the job is much easier if the multi wired plug is disconnected from the fuses carrier under glove compartment. But doing so will interrupt power to the radio . A radio code will then be required. In order to find out the radio serial number the radio must be pulled out requiring 4 special keys that i do not have. Does anybody have a link where i can get a code just using the vin number on car body ?

Saving Settings

22 July 2014 - 12:16 PM

I need to disconnect the battery on my cmax. But i dont have a radio code.
Is it possible to save the radio and engine management settings by connecting the leads to a battery charger before disconnecting them from the battery ?

Notchy Gears

13 July 2014 - 07:21 AM

Hello everyone, ive just bought an 06 1.6 tdci zetec cmax. All the gears are a bit notchy hot or cold, particularly 1st. I took the cover off bottom of gearstick and noticed that there is like this pinky coloured soapy waxy type lubrication on the ball at the base of the gearstick also on linkage rod connections. Does anyone know if you can put any old grease on or wether you have to use something special. In due course i will be taking cover off beneath engine and inspecting linkages at gearbox end. Has anybody had the same problems as me ?
