Hi all,
I currently drive a 2015 Fiesta St with 40k miles, I've recently started too have a issue with changing gearing whilst moving every time I drive it.

When I'm at a stand still I have no problems selecting every gear, but for instance if I am doing 40mph and and take it out of gear too drop it down into 3rd I'm unable too get into 3rd and will also be unable too get it back into 4th unless therefore stuck in neutral the only way I have found too get back into a gear is if I start too slow down or give the car a slight rev while pressing the clutch it will then slip back into a gear.

I've been searching around and am unable too find anyone who's had the same issue, so please let me know if you have any ideas on if I need a replacement clutch/gearbox or if it could be another problem thanks

It could be several things, but I had similar issues in my Mazda a few years back. check the clutch pedal position sensor. it's somewhere in the footwell by the clutch pedal of course. It looks like a plastic piston (i believe its actually a sort of switch) that makes contact with the pedal. you can use anything but I glued a little piece of rubber where the pedal makes contact with the piston, to close the gap between the switch and the pedal.

Is there Anything else we should know about? Was this an issue before? Are there any sounds out of the ordinary?
Both my ‘19 and ‘16 Fiesta’s were noticeable more difficult resistance wise to shift into 2nd and 1st gears. Maybe you’re not pushing hard enough?

nope zero issues before suddenly started everything sounds normal, happens in every gear depending on the speed I'm doing., i am able too if as i said cant get back into 4th at 40mph i can easily go into 5th/6th and between them no issues but will not be able to get back into 4th.

This is a question for the dealer to answer. I believe our cars come with 6 year/ 60k mi warranty so I would bring it to them. It does not sound normal or good, and if it’s debris in the gearbox it will continue to do damage.

Has anyone given you useful info?
