Ford Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Need to know if anyone has fitted a gearbox that came of a mondeo into ford smax and is it possible to use existing mondeo linkage without any problems occurring when installed.
Both gearboxes have same part numbers but linkage is different or is it possible to swap smax linkage onto mondeo gearbox?
My vehicle reg is N55 EEE (2007) can provide vin if needed donor car is 2008 mondeo no info on that only as previously mentioned part numbers are the same on both boxes.
Linkages are not interchangable without stripping gearbox to modify.
Mechanic needs to know if existing linkage on mondeo box to be fitted would be compatable without any hitches?
I can provide pictures of both gearboxes if required
Hi Sean many apologies for delay in replying obviously my mechanic is erring on the side of caution he says everything seems to fit in place drive shafts etc his concern is the different linkage as he does not want to fit only to remove again he just needs assurance that he can proceed and only problem will be adjusting cables as you mentioned.
If you can provide me with an email address I will send pictures of the 2 gearboxes

Hi Sean sorry to bother you again I have decided to get proper smax box to save any messing around with linkage on mondeo box.
My question now is would gearbox from 2010 smax be compatable with my 2007 model bearing in mind they were facelifted in 2009
