Hi all,
New to forum,can anyone help.
purchased a titanium 1.5 diesel2016
After 40km,on the left hand side of the gear column gets quite hot.
went to dealer who said it was normal because of the plastic covering,not entirely convinced

Hi welcome.
Don't have the diesel but not noticed anything on the ecoboost version. Don't think I would be convinced by that either the gear column is just connected to rods underneath so any heat would have to.transfer from the gearbox along the shaft to the gear lever.

Just another thought I think there might be a heat shield under the floor to stop the heat from the exhaust it is possible for it to be damaged or missing which would allow heat up into the car.

I would think it's heat coming up from somewhere, I would look as suggested by Mark at things like the heat shield first.
