Question about 1999 Ford Escort
The problems lies with clutch operation, Not having much to do with Fiesta's but sorting similar problems classic Ford vehicles.
I take it the clutch is operated Via a cable? on recent Fords they use a plastic Ratchet and Pawl system which automatically adjusts when cable stretches.
This may have reached its maximum so a replacement is required, also would be adviseable to change the cable too.
Have you a decent spares stockist's local? Halfords can help but you'll need to take out a Mortgage for their parts.
So Shopping list, 1. Auto adjuster (Ratchet/Pawl) 2. Clutch Cable, 3 Lube for cable and shaft on pedal assembly and 4 Haynes Manual.
Good Luck Stu!
