Odd Gear Change Problem

17 June 2015 - 05:58 PM

Hi All, I recently purchased a 1.6 petrol 2005 Zetec climate Mk2 Focus and apart from some other niggly problems the one that's bugging me is the gear change!


It's fine from 1st to 2nd to 3rd to 4th and 5th plus reverse, but when I slow down for a corner or junction and want to go from 5th to 3rd it's a real fiddle trying to get it to engage.

If I go from 5th to 4th then 3rd it's ok but not from 5th to 3rd. Selecting any lower gears ie: 4th to 3rd to 2nd to 1st are perfect.


Any ideas? Thanks in advance.
