      Posting in General Chat thread.   11/11/2017

      it has been noted that too many Members are posting messages in the General Chat area instead of the correct Forums. Any messages posted in the General Chat area that are not General Chat will be deleted without warning and offenders may recieve warning points if repeated instances are seen from that Member. There are plenty of different Club areas that encompass 99% of Ford related posts, please select and use the correct one. If anyone is not sure of which area to post something then feel free to P/M myself or other Senior Staff for guidance. The Moderating Staff are having to spend far too much time chasing this problem instead of maintaining the other areas of the forum.

  1. 1.4 Tdci Mk6 Gearbox Trouble

    Just to let everyone know, new gearbox sorted the problem, days job but saved myself alot of £££
  2. Hi All, New to the forum so not sure if i'm in the right place, I have a horrible problem with the gearbox (I think?) When driving along all is well, gears select fine and it drives well no problem, When I let off the throttle i.e. engine braking I get a rattling clicking noise as the cogs turn which sounds like the differential...If i put the car in neutral or dip the clutch the noise goes away. I have inspected the car and the box is leaking out of what looks like the n/s driveshaft seal, but I would have thought if the driveshaft was no good it would be making the noise constantly? I jacked the car up and the differential still functions as it should i.e. turn wheel one way and the other turns the other way. Any ideas what the cause might be before I splash out on a new gearbox? Many thanks in advance for reading and your thoughts. James
