MK7 FiST gear changing issue

Recommended Posts

Hi all,
I currently drive a 2015 Fiesta St with 40k miles, I've recently started too have a issue with changing gearing whilst moving every time I drive it.

When I'm at a stand still I have no problems selecting every gear, but for instance if I am doing 40mph and and take it out of gear too drop it down into 3rd I'm unable too get into 3rd and will also be unable too get it back into 4th unless therefore stuck in neutral the only way I have found too get back into a gear is if I start too slow down or give the car a slight rev while pressing the clutch it will then slip back into a gear.

I've been searching around and am unable too find anyone who's had the same issue, so please let me know if you have any ideas on if I need a replacement clutch/gearbox or it could be another problem thanks

If it goes in gear fine with the engine off then it's usually a clutch issue rather than gearbox, probably a master or slave cylinder on its way out.

do you think it requires a total clutch replacement as if i drive at somewhat low speeds i don't seem too have an issue.

I think you've found the solution 😂, that's one way not to get any speeding tickets.

If it's the slave cylinder then the gearbox needs to come out. At that point you may as well stick an uprated clutch in for the cost (if you're seeking more power). The release bearing is part of the slave cylinder assembly so unfortunately talking £80 for a genuine Ford slave. Obviously couple hundred quid labour to add on that. Master cylinder should be significantly cheaper as it's just behind the clutch pedal.

If only I could constantly drive at low speeds it would definitely be a good solution right.

cheers for your help mate I really appreciate it, looks like my wallets getting destroyed 😂
