Question about Ford Focus
Posted by Anonymous on
Bit late but thought I'd add my two cents, I've got a 2007 f/focus auto, my shifter became extremely hard to shift the other day, I continued driving to work and left it for day hoping it would come right. Anyway, finished work and shifter was still stiff, on my way back home had my hand resting on lever and i felt the plastic on the stick wasn't up properly and was sitting in the hole for the stick, needless to say problem fixed, hope others benefit from this post as I myself was about to dismantle the transmission!!

SOURCE: stiff gear lever
the lever is greased from the factory and at 60k km that grease may be displaced. if you are handy enough to remove the center console around the shift lever, you can re-grease it yourself. also where the cabling connects to the transmission may be in need of adjustment if the aforementioned solution does not correct it. also be sure and service your transmission (fluid/filter changes)

If the gearstick is comleatly loose and the problem was sudden then it has just come adriftt from the plastic ball joint that can be reached from inside the car by removing the gearnob and lifting the sock then push back together and all should be ok.
Happend to me in June 2009 done that and it hasnt happend since

I have the same car, the only solution to this problem is to tighten the clutch cable nut just as necessary until you feel that you are able to shift smoothly without forcing it, make sure you start the car to test for that.
You might have to remove the air intake in order to access the clutch cable.
If you tighten the nut too much, your clutch will feel light and you will have clutch slips. So basically keep trying until you're there. You can loosen or tighten the nut while the car is running, I'd recommend.
