We have a B-Max auto and have found a judder when pulling away. Took car to main dealer to take alook. That afternoon they confirmed fault common to this automatic model. Dealer informed me they will fit a new clutch pack, but estimated it will take upto two weeks before car will be repaired and ready to collect. Our car is under 2 years old and only has approx 5000 miles on the clock.
Will keep you posted once work completed. Far from being happy.
Only consolation car still within 2 year warranty.
Have the same problem have took it too fords and there trying too tell me it needed a software update, a fool can tell this is a mechanical not electrical fault, on way too collect will keep you posted
I bought a 2nd hand b-max 62 plate with 7k on clock had it 3 weeks and now have clutch judder on pulling away .
Got it booked in for 10 June they say they will reset computer , but if persists will replace clutch , my question is
What is different about the new clutch to,stop same thing happening in another 8k miles ?
Wilseewhat happens after 10th
I would assume that because the software settings are incorrect that part do not move together as they should. This would cause wear and/or partial slipping which results in judder as it tries to work.
If the computer is reset to new settings this should stop the problem.
What i wonder is, as ear takes place does this affect the computer settings and does this mean a reset every so often?
I assume my clutch is controlled in a similar manner although mine is not automatic. I do really abuse the clutch with progressive quick driving and am always changing down to get quite acceleration. So far after nearly three years, no problems.
At one time I could smell the clutch burning when try to mount a high kerb fully laden.
Judder is common on 13 reg auto.usual procedure seems to be reset computor then change clutch.I had to go on waiting list for new clutch as they were in short supply.Its usually a poor oil seal the culprit.lots expained on utube as most of usa fords fiestas have autos and its the same unit.
