My thoughts on the Powershift Gearbox right now. I could cover the £2352 but I just know they will say the TCM needs replacing too.
I have a Mondeo Titanium X Sport. It's in beautiful condition inside and out - yet I will probably have to scrap it because of this, as I will be unable to pass this on to anyone else.
Can't you throw a used gearbox & TCM in it?
The symptoms in that e-mail, my father in laws car has started doing the same.
