Re: smooth gear shifting

Hello Praz, Welcome to The Automotive India. Does the clutch of your car engages correctly?

Drive Safe,

Oh in that case the shifting becomes smooth once you drop the vehicle for 1st service.

Re: Smooth Gear Shifting

Usually For i10 gear shifting is usually very smooth. This Problem mite be related to clutch. Is the play good ? check with any other service station other than which u r showing now. If shifting is so harder then it mite be a problem with sleeve synchroniser also.

Re: Smooth Gear Shifting

Hello Praz welcome to TAI and congrats for your i10. Regarding the gear shifts , i10's gear shift is real smooth generally. Either you are not engaging the gear properly or there really is some problem with the car.

After driving my Fiesta for couple of days now i feel that the Gear shift is not smooth at all. The gear kind of gets stucked.

Re: Geat Shift Not Smooth

May i know how many kms has your car clocked? The issue can be due to various reasons like clutch plate wear, gearbox related issue or any other minor one like improper pressing of clutch.

Re: Geat Shift Not Smooth

Hi Guys
My Car has only clocked about 130 KM. I had read in some other forum that due to the design of the area near the clutch we sometimes dont press the clutch fully.
So we have to use the tip of the foot to press the clutch fully.
I will try that today and let you guys know.

Thanks
