It depends on what is wrong with the clutch. Is it slipping, juddering or making gear selection difficult?
Not all Ford Escorts have self-adjusting clutches; some are manually adjusted and need attention from time-to-time and proper engagement can be prevented if the pedal has risen too high.
Even the automatic adjuster can cause problems sometimes as can the clutch cable.
Before starting the big job of dismantling the suspension and removing the gearbox it is as well to check what can be checked and be sure lots of work is really needed.
Hi! There may be a possibility the cable has snapped, however Ford used a ratchet and pawl set up on the Escort which is made of plastic! when it reaches its full tension (Self Adjusting) it can break leaving you with a baggy soppy floppy clutch pedal. So a clutch replacement is NOT required! If the cable has broken you should be able to see from under the Bonnet/hood as it is situated on top of the gearbox Bell housing. Again a Clutch is NOT needed. Hope this sorts it? Press the Blue Button please to appraise my FREE! Effort. Thank You! Paul 'W' U.K.
