Ford Fiesta Stuck in Gear

Late Ford Fiesta Stuck in Gear only 20k miles!

Slightly modified IB5 gearbox with stop start, the diff bearings are also the same size!

The 3/4 fork snapped at its weakest point, the original fork was made out of aluminium, the new OEM fork was readily available from the local main dealer , noteworthy is the replacement is made from brass.  I expect most of these would be done under Ford’s new vehicle warranty? Also noted was the diff bearings where quite well worn.

You do need special tools to remove the 5th gear on the IB5.

Rumor has it these have been jobbed out to China in some form?
