Hi,
I have exactly the same problem on my b-max zetec 1.6 auto (63 plate). It's booked in at the garage on 27th Oct...I'll be interested to see what they say. All my symptoms are exactly as you describe.

My mum has had the same problem with her B-max.

<div style="line-height: 16.7999992370605px; : rgb251, 251, 253;">We ended up having the clutch pack replaced and then a few weeks later, a new flywheel and crankshaft position sensor!

I tend to agree with Kjeld.


The reason is that this appears to be a problem across the range of vehicles using this gearbox and not just the B-Max (see Fiesta boards). The assumption must be that the dual clutch auto has a fundamental weakness which its creators are currenly unable to address.

With that in mind, I suspect that a different design is being created/tested, but that this is a long term solution and is unlikely to help the current generation of cars.

Shame, because at one time Ford boxes were generally regarded as the slickest, smoothest mass-production units available.

I too have the same engine / gearbox and am having the same problem. The engineer who came along for a test drive said Ford were aware of the issues and were in the throes of narrowing the clutch adjustment margins on the on board computer. I'm waiting with interest but would be grateful of hearing the outcome of your case so that I can have some idea of what the future holds in store!

Hej igen
, jeg
har nu flere
gange
været i kontakt med
den
danske
Ford
import√łr
, som jeg
fortalte
, har forlænget
garantien på
min
gearkasse
til 4 år.
har de
ikke √łnsket at
g√łre noget ved
gearkassen
på nuværende tidspunkt,
og
når problemet
bliver værre og værre
, jeg har taget konsekvensen
og
solgte min
Ford
B
-Max , har jeg kun haft
det
i 6 måneder og
kun k√łrt
15.500
km
, men er så
træt
af bilen,
så
nu
vil jeg ikke
mere
. Desværre kan jeg ikke
anbefale
Ford
til
nye k√łbere
, da det er min overbevisning,
at Ford
Excelent
kender problemet
, MEN IKKE VIL
G√ėRE NOGET OM
DET
, betyder det,
at
udtrykket, når
rygter
spredt
, at bilens
tilbagek√łbsv√¶rdi
vil falde
drastisk
, den
fremtid
, så
det er billigere at
tage tabet
med det samme.
Til alle jer
, held og lykke
med
at din indsats
f√• problemet l√łst
.


mange
hilsner
Kjeld
