Re: Anyone had this gearbox problem???
Well all the best on the getting it repaired mate. After driving your car i can say that while it's abit notchier to get into 1st and 2nd it doesn't appear to be too serious.
I was thinking, maybe try adjusting the clutch a tad shorter (not as short as mine) and just maybe it will help the shifts. Reading in the ford manual the default clutch travel specification is 140mm as the clutch gets used and the cable stretches the travel and be longer which when you press the pedel it doesn't quite disengage the clutch.
