bought an ST in 2006
from the beginning there was a strange clicking when gear changed or
push/pull torque change
filed complaints to dealer and directly Ford Cologne
front axles 'glued' - no improvement
even a Ford specialist arrived having a look, said this would be 'normal'
last friday when driving home after 5 min heavy noise from engine
compartment, sounds as if some stick hitting the cooling fan
Ford shop takes gearbox off, said gearbox is defective
Ford shop looking for a gearbox repair service. Shop said, not
available. There are NO spare parts for the ST 225 available
Ford shop looking for an exchange gearbox. No gearbox available, neither
exchange nor new.
Ford shop contacts Volvo, Volvo said they cannot work with Ford part
numbers, not possible to sell a Volvo gearbox.
Ford Service Center in Cologne contacted, asking Ford to take the
expenses or part of it.
Ford service center said booking this case into their computer system
will take up to FOUR days....
Ford service says a reply to this case may take another 10 to 20 days
