Ford Fiesta Durashift clutch actuator fault – stuck in gear and no start

Ford Fiesta durashift actuator fault

This Ford Fiesta (Mk6) clutch actuator is fitted to the Durashift EST (Electronic Shift Transmission) gearbox and is very problematic. Common internal failure of this actuator will cause the gearbox to get stuck in a gear, and when you turn the car off and then try to restart you will find that the engine refuses to start, this is because the gearbox actuator cannot select neutral.

 

The warning message ‘Transmission fault’ will appear on the instrument cluster and there will either be a flashing ‘N’ in the gear display or it will not show anything at all. If you have the vehicle scanned with diagnostic tools, you will usually get the most common fault code of P0810 – Clutch Position Control Error, which cannot be cleared.

 

Ford main dealerships will often seek to remedy these Ford Fiesta Durashift problems by purchasing an expensive replacement clutch actuator. However this will need to be programmed at an extra expense, will only come with a short one-year manufacturer warranty and, because the root cause of these failures has not been corrected at factory level, all replacements are prone to malfunction.

 

Our solution is more cost-effective – a test and rebuild of your original clutch actuator with a lifetime warranty and no need for re-coding. During rebuild we will engineer-out the deep-rooted causes so that it will never fail again.
