  1. Hi, after reading these forums I decided to go for a ford focus as my first car, covering the most common faults I was glad that mine didn't have any of them :) but now owning the car for 3 months... I have a problem which is driving me nuts, its hard to get into 1st gear. When it doesn't go in first I have to press the clutch down again and it goes in/or when i fully stop then it just goes in (without even the need to repress the clutch down). Note, that was a bit of clunking noise when releasing the clutch (past the biting point) when I just bought the car which doesn't happen anymore, so i'm thinking it was just because I was a new driver and was getting to the biting point. Recently Its either in my head or its just getting more annoying to shift through gears, their a bit stiff and not as smooth as they should be. Car: 2006 mk2 ford focus, petrol, 1.6 and close to 100k. Problem: Hard to get in 1st (without depressing clutch again, when downshifting obviously) Other notes: clutch isn't slipping, but I do have to press it fully down (right to the floor) to disengage the clutch There is crunch when switching to reverse Has anyone experienced this before? Thanks :)

    Clutch Clutch Clutch

    Hey guys, Just wondering, but how do I test my clutch? Recently, the bites been feeling quite high. I don't think my clutch has gone yet, as its not slipping but any ideas? The biting point i'd say is about 2 pound coins width from the pedal being fully released. Oh and when I shift gears, recently I've noticed the revs do go up a little, perhaps by 100- 200rpms? Note: When I travel, im always in stop-start traffic if that's of any significance.

    Gear Box Issues

    Well, looks like I won't be driving a Mondeo for much longer....actually not driving it at all at the moment. Was on my way to Loch Ness towing my caravan when it started to be impossible to select 1st or 2nd gear which is really bad when it comes to stopping and having to try and drive off in 3rd gear on a hill.....as a result, now 5th and reverse gear have died too. I suspect the gear box and due to age of car I don't think I will get this repaired. Currently stuck on a campsite at Loch Ness until can sort out a different car.....
  4. Hello, I'm new to Mondeo's and new to the forum. It's only done 37,500 miles and I really love the car, but......one thing's spoiling it for me. The gearbox just isn't a smooth as it should be and sometimes I have to use more force than I'd like to or expect to when changing down to second from around 20 - 25 mph. On the move it seems fine, but at lower speeds and town driving, the gear changes feel springy, a bit notchy and just not right. I bought the car from a dealer and there's about 1.5 months warranty left. Any help would be much appreciated. Cheers Derek
  5. Anyone got any ideas what could be the problem. I have a 2001 Maverick 2.0 XLT, I have just been to Scotland (from Sheffield) and went off road, nothing heavy just on grass. I thought I would try the 4 wheel drive button and when I turned it on the gear box clunked into gear and the car started juddering. Hit the button again and it clunked off, When we got back down to the road and slowed down to below 10 mph I now have a juddering and dull noise like something is catching. When I speed up it goes away. Any ideas? Thank
