Ford Focus Gearbox & Transmission Problems
Ask Smithy Xtra Noisy gearbox in 08 Focus
A noise that goes away when you press the clutch pedal in is usually a sign that the thrust bearing is “gone”, but it’s unusual for that to happen at such low kays. Have it assessed by another dealer to get a second opinion, and of that supports your view that it’s too noisy take it back and demand it be fixed. That fix is likely to be a replacement gearbox. While you are in negotiation with your dealer, and with Ford itself, keep meticulous records of conversations and agreements for future reference if needed.
