Mk6 Fiesta - Shifting noise when selecting reverse
I have had my 1.25 Fiesta for a few years now but have never been impressed with the shift into reverse gear.
Basically it graunches into reverse gear (with varying degrees of severity) and sometimes the car shudders as it does it!
I have had the brake fluid / clutch fluid bled and checked for air twice and now the clutch replaced – but still not perfect!
It seems to not do it if you come to a standstill in a forward gear and shift immediately to reverse, or if you hold the clutch in from neutral for 5 seconds or so before.
Has anyone else had a similar problem and or remedy, or have I just got a ‘built on a Friday afternoon’ car?
