Question about 2000 Ford Escort

1 Answer

FORD ESCORT DIESEL VAN W/00 How difficult is it to replace a headlamp? Can I do it myself? Anyone got any advice. I think I'll get the Haynes manual (4081) but advice from anyone who's done the actual job is usually at least as helpful, pitfalls to avoid etc. Thanks folks.

    Thanks. From what I'd read, it seemed I was gonna have to remove the front bumper & radiator grille!? I thought why the hell would they build a vehicle where you had to dismantle half the front just to replace a headlamp unit!? But nothing surprises me. I also have an old SEAT Ibiza Cupra Sport and you can't remove the wipers without the bonnet doing a merry jig. Of course if you had arms 8ft long that might help. LOL!

    Yes, it's the Escort headlamp, not just a bulb I'm replacing. It will save some money that I can ill afford to pay someone else to do a job if I can do myself. Advice for both, much appreciated!

DO YOU MEAN THE ACTUAL HEADLAMP OR JUST THE BULB?
TO REMOVE THE ACTUAL HEADLAMP THERE ARE JUST TWO SCREWS AT THE TOP, REMOVE THESE, UNPLUG BOTH PLUGS, AND THE WHOLE UNIT WILL COME OUT.
TO REMOVE THE BULB, TAKE OFF THE COVER AT THE BACK, UNDO THE CLIP, AND THE BULB IS OUT, WHEN REPLACING THE NEW BULB DO NOT TOUCH THE GLASS BIT OF THE BULB.
BOTH JOBS ARE EXTREMELY EASY TO DO

How much oil will a ford escort van 1.8 diesel


if you have the owners manual-look in the index for oil capacity, or fluid capacities. that should inform you of the oil type and capacity (if you change the filter as well, it will prob. take another half-quart or so. the manual should inform you.
if no manual get on ford website, and search for escort 1.8L diesel van. precede with the year of model.it may inquire whether you have a/c, 4wd, etc. may need more oil, if so.
good luck!

Clutch


some of these are difficult to do where an autoadjuster is used,quicker and easier to use an official ford garage who have a big book with all the times in it and often you are only charged for the time charged in the book but watch out for the golden egg,this is where you are charged for lots of parts that didnt need changing just to make up for an awkard job thats un-economic for the dealer so extra parts are fitted that didnt need changing just to make up for the shortfall in labour charge.
