    Oil Leak, Gearbox

    As Argen suggested, the cover was very easy to remove (most unlike modern stuff) :) I attach a picture below ... looks to me like I've a rather tricky to fix leak coming from where the gearbox linkages enter the gearbox, I guess there may be a seal I can replace or some magic stuff I can add to the gearbox oil that will rejuvenate the seals and gaskets :( I really wish the gearbox had a dipstick too so I'd have some idea of any fluid loss Any advice very welcome

    Oil Leak, Gearbox

    Just replaced fan resistors, fan now works on all speeds, air con l;ight doesn't mysteriously go out. But I'm unconvinced air con works, no doubt that a seperate issue!

    Thank you so much for your reply Arjen. I see you've made some interesting mods to your Fusion! I'm am off to clean the offending area now, I will update as things progress, I'm in no hurry as I have another car I'm using until the Fusion is sorted :) x

    Oil Leak, Gearbox

    Hi, hope I'm doing this right as I'm new to this forum. I have just bought a Fusion 2 TDCi with zero history and 108k miles. I've been cheaking it over and preparing it for use. Whilst engine sounds lovely (as lovely as a direct injection diesel ever sounds) it's clear the car has been run on a tight budget by an uncaring owner (filthy interior, cheap tyres, oil looks dirty, etc) Faults/issues found so far: 1. Weird noise from 'clutch' as u pull away, disapears when clutch is fully released. Assuming clutch release bearing , not overly conserned, I'm assuming it'll get a lot worse before it's terminal! 2. Fan only works in position 4 & engaginging 4 extingishes the air con light I'm assuming 4 only simply means the resistor pack has overheated and blown its thermal resistor. I've located and removed this (omg it's well hidden), I didn't bother testing it, just ordered a replacement as they so cheap. I've also cleaned the pollen filter as I'm aware these are often the cause of the resistors overheating (I will replace this very shortly when I give the car a full service). Hopefully air con will be ok once the replacement resistor arrives. 3. I understand the timing belt is 150 000 miles/10 years changes, so I guess it's never been done. Is it worth changing the water pump at the same time? If it brakes; is it a dead engine, or is it a 'safe' engine? 4. I seem to have an oil leak from the gearbox area :( See picture below... Any ideas? Is there a gearbox dipstick? Thanks, Daisy x
