Ford Not Coming To Party For New Gearbox For Orsmxr

Hi guys, damage report 5 teeth missing off 2nd gear, damage to most of the sincroz, at the start blaming me for damage but later found out the sincro gears must have come out of alignment for this to damage so much.

So ford still cant give me a time on which the parts will be getting here as they are on back order, which they tell me they could be on a plane or at fords or maybe they are still in the states,so then said not good enough want new box as dont l want a recondition box, which bayfords said we are not putting new one as it is more cost efective to rebuild ( dont worry about how long its going to take) so i now have crc involved which have given dealership till tomorrow morning to tell us how far away the car is to be fixed.

Also asked them if the drive line shunt has anything to do with the damage caused and he said dont think it would have any effect so its up in the air what caused this prob.

Re: Ford Not Coming To Party For New Gearbox For Orsmxr

i would have thought that they would have just put a new box in it, i for one would not be happy with a rebuild if it has done as much damage as you say because all the broken teeth would have gone right through the box causing untold damage

anybody else have this much trouble getting warranty repairs done on there BA's

this could make or break the sales of the BA 2 because if a lot of people are having problems with there cars now & are not able to get warranty or have trouble getting repairs done under warranty then that info will filter out to the general public & they will have second thoughts about buying the cars even thought they are a great car

regards

I agree with Rod....replacing the gear only is not good enough. The bearings and other gears will most likely be damaged from fine particles of hardened steel.

Re: Ford Not Coming To Party For New Gearbox For Orsmxr

I suppose there is always a fine line as to who's fault it is when something breaks down, and it must be a difficult discision by the dealership to determine the faults but lets face it they're in the knowhow and usually can determine the breakage and how it could have happened.
Cheers John

Sad but true Rod, l for one wont be buying again. Euro for our next car and maybe in a few years come back and see if Ford have got the message yet that the customer isnt stupid and that without us, they dont exist.

l worry that Fords attitude and some of the common problems with these cars are going to hurt us all at resale time, hence we ultimatly pay for Fords dsiregard for the customer in the first place.

YUP!!! would you call being told that no more work would be carried out on your car until the original exhaust was re-fitted as FPV's engineers said the Herrod exhaust was causing the ticking noise much trouble in getting warranty repairs done?
