      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. St Gear Change

    I've done just over 350 miles so far, varied speeds, short and long runs. I would have thought it would have freed up. But with 500 miles being quoted maybe I should hang fire on it being looked at, but then again it can't hurt Sent from my GT-I9505 using Ford OC mobile app

  3. St Gear Change

    Hi there. I picked up my new ST a couple of weeks back and its great, love it to bits. Here's the but...... One cold night a week ago i started her up and went to put it into first but it didn't want to, i put it back in neutral and tried again but it wouldn't slot into gear. I left it a second as she was still warming up anyway and tried third and second, no problem. Then back to first and it went in. Now occasionally it feels like there's a slight resistance when changing gear while driving along normally, sometimes when getting into first and third once moving. Second, fourth and sixth seem fine and have a smoothness as they slide in but the other two just feel a tad strange. Its just first and third i notice it and occasionally fifth that at times feel a touch...... hard to describe, but maybe clunky like they have to pop in not slide in. It runs great and there's nothing else to report but is this normal with this car? My previous was an '11 plate ZS and that was sweet. An additional note, when stationary and not running the gears slide perfect, but that's obviously because nothing is moving. Thanks
