    rachit is loose how do you reattach

  • John Jon May 11, 2010

    what size of ratchet was it 1/4" 3/8" 1/2" or 3/4" ratchet?

  • Steve Draper May 11, 2010

    The ratchet is generally called a quadrant.
    It is a quarter circle of plastic with small teeth which engage with a spring loaded catch(adjuster) which also has teeth.
    If the quadrant has passed the adjuster then; either your cable is strechted or you need to fit a new ratchet which is quite easy
    please let me know what happens
    good luck

How do I fix the clutch on a 1997 Ford escort


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.

While driving lifting excelerator pedal a rachiting noise occurs.


If it is a loud buzzing ratcheting noise that stops as soon as you accelerate then it is most likey the front one way clutch sprag in the transmission. I would have a transmission tech listen to it.

Sounds like your clutch cable is caught. Try new cable.

I have a 1998 ford escort cx wagon, the clutch has broke..is it possible it could be the cable? does it have a cable? or is it a hydraulic clutch? or would I need to replace the clutch? :-)


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?

Clutch not working


You will need to replace the clutch cable, it goes from the top of the clutch pedal to the top of the transmission.
