MK8 Fiesta - gear stick vibration


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

I just bought a second hand 2018 plate Fiesta with 10k miles. It's all great, but I have noticed the gear stick making a vibrating sound when I accelerate. Just at the point where I would change up gears, it kicks in and if I change up it's gone. If I put my hand on the gear stick also, it stops the vibration/knocking sound.

It only seems to do it in 3rd and 4th gear. 

 

Is this normal or should I get the garage to check it over? 

 

Thanks

Mine is a 2018 build with similar mileage and doesn't do this, if you have only just got it, i would suggest them looking at it, i assume they've offered some short warranty period after purchase as they quite often do, so might be worthwhile a look.

I’ve got a 2018 EcoBoost with 15,000 miles and all good. I’ve read on here in the past about vibrations in 1st, 3rd and 5th (I think) and it’s down to a weight on the linkage ( to give a more quality feel ) vibrating against something. If you’re still under warranty get it booked in with Ford to be fixed.

Thanks. Yeah, only got it on Saturday so 3 months to take it back. I'll go out again today and get a more detailed description, maybe a video and I'll give them a call.

Thanks. I can't seem to recreate it now 🤣 how annoying.

Hopefully it's gone and doesn't come back.
