SOURCE: Brake Rotor Replacement Ford Escort 1997

The rotor is not held on by the big nut, it slides on and off, only the wheel holds it on, the clearance between the rotor and the front hub which the large nut holds on is very small, rust forms and the rotor gets stuck, use a hammer or a large piece of wood if you plan to reuse the rotor and hit it from side to side, spray penetrating oil to loosen the rust, it is a bugger but it will come loose, then make sure to wire brush all the rust off or wheel retention may be compromised.

SOURCE: Ford Escort 1997 brake lights wont go out even when engine is off

Check behind your brake pedal. I don't remember what the parts were called but the same thing happened to me. When you put your foot on the brake there is a plastic or rubber circle attached to the brake pedal that comes in contact with a switch. It causes the brake lights to come on. When you take your foot off the brake it turns the switch off and the brake light goes off. Over time this rubber or plastic circle gets worn and it is still in contact with the switch so it remains on. When this first happened to me I was able to adjust the switch so that the pad came completely away from the switch when I took my foot off the brake. The second time it happened I had to replace the pad on the pedal. I actually made my own because it looked like it was part of the pedal. I also had to replace the switch another time. The switch cost under $20.00 from a parts store.

SOURCE: Replacing dashboard clock. How do I remove the

You shouldn't have to remove the dash to replace a clock, the dash basically does not come out. It would take you 2 days to do it. The clock itself should pop out of its spot and be serviceable.

See Figure 8

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Raise the car and support it with safety stands.

This will prove fatal in sufficient quantities. Always drain coolant into a sealable container. Coolant should be reused unless it is contaminated or is several years old.
  1. Drain and recycle the engine coolant.
  2. Remove the timing belt.
  3. Unfasten the timing belt tensioner bolt and remove the tensioner.

How do i adjust the timing on a 1997 escort


ignition timing is controlled by the computer in OBD-II compliant vehicles such as yours, since 1996 and up.

The only other timing that can be controlled is the valve timing, but that requires removing the timing belt, and that is also fixed to timing marks on the cogs.

95 escort. when key is removed the signal continues to chirp.


Your ignition switch thinks the key is still in ignition.

Take some WD-40 or better yet some graphite powder and insert where key goes. Push key in and out. Relube again. Repeat key in and out.

This will lube the switch and hopefully free up the mechanism that is sticking.
