Friday Entertainment

Called Ford to get my Focus back in to service for what will likely be clutch replacement.

Oh wait - already had that done last year, and then they rebuilt my transmission 3 months ago.

Time for clutch #3. Best part is, I can't get it in for another week because there are too many other Focuses with transmission issues ahead of mine!

Happy Friday.

If it loses half of its value in 2 years and your wife hates it, I'll buy it.

I would never do that. But we do have a kid or two she said I could barter with.

First I've read of a transmission (transaxle) rebuild. Did the list the parts they replaced? Syncrhonizers, shafts, gears, etc?

I figured under warranty they'd just replace the whole gearbox / transaxle.

Mainly the bearings and shift forks - I can get you the parts list if you're interested.

I'm still trying to wrap my head around the logic of rebuild vs replace, especially at 14,000 miles and well under warranty.

EDIT: parts replaced (quoted as named on parts list)

FORK-GEAR SHIFTER (x4)
BRG ASY-RR AX DIFF (x2)
BEARING-TRN S INPUT S
SNAP RING-TRANSMISSI
RING INP/SHAFT GEAR
OIL SEAL-TRANS REAR
SEAL-INPUT SHAFT OIL
SEAL-RR AXLE (x2)
