Question about 2003 Ford Focus
I have a 53 plate fors focus 1.4, i recently had the clutch redone as it was wearing. after coming out of the garage it started making a knocking noise on the gearbox, this only happens when i move off in 1st then through the gears it is fine. the noise then only occurs again when i go into reverse, with the engine switched off, the car in gear and handbrake off i rock the car back and forwards there is a knocking from around the engine area. i have been advised this could be the universal joint for the drive shaft, or the differential has some play in it. I am just looking for some ideas to try and avoid a £1000 bill for a gearbox recondition
Firstly i would take it back to the garage i got it repaired at. but does the knocking get worse the faster you get or is it only on turning on full lock? if its when turning could be a faulty CV joint, could be that the driveshaft is not located back in the gearbox correctly, i would take it back to the garage
