confused manual

Hey guys..

i was just wonder if anyone can help me, coz ford can't!

i have a XLS falcon ute.. manual 6cyl..

its only done 6000kms and for about the last 2000, the second and third gears and getting hard to get out when changing up and down.

it has been to ford twice and they said it was the clutch.. which they have adjusted both times.
when i returned the said they took it for a drive and it was good, but i took down the kms and they had not even driven the thing.

Now, today driving home from trade school there was a noice coming from the gear box.. like there was somthing stuck in there, so i drove past ford and got them to take it for a drive.. the guy said it was a normal sound.

what should i do?

thanks
Teza..

Get Ford to check the rubber seal that sits on top of the gearbox where the stick comes through, I had the same problem and it was only FTE in Adelaide that knew what it was, all the other dealers said there was nothing wrong.

On another note, you are going to have to change your name, mate, this forum aint big enough for 2 tezas and as I was here first, with 160 posts to my credit, I aint about to change mine.

I don't think this will be necessary, the teza and Teza68 names are fairly distinguishable, we have a few names that are more similar than this, so I don't see the problem between these two userid's either.

Tongue in cheek, man, was messing around, good to have someone that will take the rap for some of my comments....
There was supposed to be a smiling face in there but I forgot to put it in....
