    Simple as that huh? I hope so. Does the allen set screw on the side of the shifter have anything to do with securing the button in place? We've had to tighten that screw before due to the shift lever loosening up.

    I have an 07 ford focus.It has an automatic transmission.The button on the side of the shift knob has popped completely out, landing on the floor. It is oval in shape. Can this be re-inserted and secured so it is operable?

  • brazealm330 Oct 04, 2010

    I appreciate the help,but I'm not sure you're familiar with that 07 shift lever and knob assembly. The button is oval shaped, so twisting it to lock it in place is pretty much impossible.

Place the spring in the slot, the button on top of the spring. Press the button and give it a twist. If clockwise does not work then twist anti clockwise.

This a common problem on Focus's, there is a spring under the boot at the gear lever called the "gear lever return spring" take off the boot, then the big philips screws holding down the plastic bit, pop off the gear cables, then pull out the whole lever and you will most definately find the broken spring. You will get a new spring from ford for about four pounds. A bit tricky to fit back together but the whole job takes about 5 minutes once you have done a few!

    ALrighty, two things. The button's lock may have broke off or it was in a bad position causing it to pop out.

Ford Focus 2010 put my car into reverse suddenly stopped tried to put it into gear but I couldn't find any gear just goes round in circles. Can someone tell me what happened and is it an easy fix


sounds like one of the shift cables has broken. Have somebody look at the linkages on the transmission while you move the shift lever in the car. I am betting they will see one of the cables is no longer attached to a shift lever on the transmission.

Pull the shoe-lace/ material in the opposite direction of the winder retainer clip and it will easily come off, but it is a spring clip and may fly off so be careful. Good luck

It might just be a fuse. Check to see if your brake lights light up when you step on the brake with the key on. If not it is probably just a fuse.

There is a small sleeve just below the shift knob on the ford focus - it can slide down and trigger a sensor in the gear box that tells the car it is not in park even when it is. Push the sensor back up toward the knob (with the car in park) and the key should release.
