      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. Morning.. 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.
