Had RS in for its 4th service today ( 1st service under my ownership) at ford dealers and they have discovered a slight misting of oil on underside of gearbox there saying its pos selector housing seals that has distorted over time ? only got 12k on clock has anybody come across this issues if so how did you resolve it ? Ford want £629 to repair it
So i Removed airbox this morning to gain access to inspect selector hosing area to find puddles of oil 😱🤯 cleaned it all up will see how much it fills up over next couple of days.
After doing some reasech online & asking on rs mk3 owners club Facebook page it seams to be a very common fault lots are trying to seal them with sealant etc but seems to keep recuring looks like the only way forward is to make a gasket to go inbetween which ford didn’t think was a good idea for some reason 🤔
Phoned ford today to asked technician for full break down of what work they would be doing bsaicly they said they will replace selector hosing and reseal but they told me original hosing can’t be reseal 🤔 soo hows that different from realising original unit.
I asked for part number & prices just to see if can source them separately on my own
Selector housing £297.00 +vat
Silcon sealant £16.90 +vat
I’ll get some sealant ordered and clean up orginal unit & reseal myself.
