Resolved Question:

Hello,
I;ve just bought a 2004 Ford Fiesta, Semi-Auto (I believe it's a Durashift).
I was expecting it to creep forward with the footbrake released like the fully automatic that I was learning in, however it doesn't. Is this right?

Hi there good morning to you and sorry for delayed response we've been having some Site connection issues

Ok the ASM (auto shift manual ) durashift gearbox will not creep forward or back when the brake is released

The ASM Varient is not an automatic gearbox like the conventional fully auto boxes

This gearbox is a normal ib5 (5 speed fully manual gearbox )

The only difference is the gear selection and clutch actuatoon is controlled electronically

If you need anymore help or advice on this issue please let me know and I will do my upmost to assist you
