Do Not Sell My Personal Information

Gear stick slipped through floor and found a plastic bit.


Recommended Posts


I own a 2002 Ford Fiesta 1.25, earlier this morning I was moving my car up the side of a street, the engine was warm and I decided to dump the clutch (Silly I know) and when I did so the car span up for a second then a bang and the car shot into neutral. After I got the car safely to the side of the road I looked on the road to find a black piece of plastic about 3 inches long and half an inch wide... The car does now go into gear but it's not easy to find 1st or reverse.. My mechanic friend has but a temporary "fix" with zip ties which popped out after 2/3 gear changes.. The gear stick now sits about 3 inches lower than normal and wobbles about the place...

also when the car is in reverse the gear stick will move around a bit before it actually decides to get into gear.. 


Any help.. Thank you.
