      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. Hey guys, I'm a belgian owner of a 2004 ford fusion + with a durashift transmission, as the car has some simular problems regarding to not wanting to shift in gear and gear position indicator is going blank, i've been reading about the fixes over here. I've taken out the gear shift actuators as these can cause problems but the are not stuck, the plastic bushing was clean and the axle moved freely within. then i have opened op the electric motors to see if there was any problems, but the only thing i've found was dust from the brushes, witch i've cleaned out using compressed air. There is indeed a smal electronic board in it, also covered in dust. But this did not fixed the problem. At the same time i have opened up the complete wiring loom, checked it visualy and measured it out, but no corrosion or faults found. After these fixes i've put al the pieces back into the car and tried it out, no luck. Then i've taken out the clutch actuator, witch was not an easy task, and opened up the electric motor. the motor was covered in dust the carbon brushes, and after inspecting the rotor, i saw that the brushes are complete gone on one side, and not touching the rotor anymore. Does anyone know if there are replacement sets for these brushes for sale somewhere? Or does anybody knows where i can get this fixed? As i'm not sure that the rebuilders that you can find on the www are rebuilding the motors too, it seems that these are electronic repair techs. Sorry for my bad english, as it is not my native language.
