I have had a phone call from Ford customer services(Glasgow)this morning regarding the crunching reverse gear, they are not disputing that we have an issue, but as I am the only one to complain nationally it appears to be difficult to take it further with Ford, they have requested that anyone that is experiencing the same issue to report it to their local dealer, I would be grateful if any of you are experiencing the same issues (some of you have already confirmed that you are)that you report it to your dealer,if you have reported it I would grateful for the name of the dealers.

They have stated that it is not meant to happen and that the we shouldn't have to start in gear or engage any forward gear first before going into reverse, the ECU has be checked and has the latest software.

If you are experiencing any gearbox issues and it is not reported and it causes a problem after the warranty has run out it could be difficult to claim.

Im just another to add to the same problem, again I just stick it in 1st then straight into reverse or put it into reverse very slowly.

May try the 3rd gear trick though instead of 1st.....

Sometimes I leave the car in reverse when I park up then its all ready to go the next morning, don't forget to put the clutch down though!!

Ive done 12,000 miles now and I have noticed an improvement though

Will any of these methods bugga up the clutch/gears in any way?
