I’ve been lurking for a few weeks but decided to join tonight because I have a question. I replaced the clutch in my 2002 Focus today. Problem is, I can’t move the shifter with the engine off. I haven’t filled the transmission or bled the clutch yet. I just wanted to check to see that the shift cables were attached correctly before moving on to the next step in the workshop manual. If I mess with it a bit I can get it to shift into fourth but that’s all. Unless I’m mistaken, gear oil is just a bath to prevent wear on the transmission internals. I know you can shift a manual transmission without using the clutch so I don’t think the lack of bleeding is the problem. Any ideas? I need my daily driver back!
