SOURCE: 1998 ford escort wagon light in shifter console out.

If just the shifter light is out then it is not the fuse, the top plate of the shifter just pulls off, on some models there are 2 screws, the bulb is below that top plate.

SOURCE: rear brake drums 1998 ford escort

hi to remove the hob nut you need a large bar about two feet long and i think they are 30mm but you will need to replace them with new ones and torque them correctly or you will encounter problems theyalso have to be pinned when torqued it really is not a diy job

SOURCE: rear drum removal 1998 ford escort

Hi,
Removing the drums can be a little difficult if they are really worn and. have a large lip inside where the brake shoes have worn them down.
Anyway here goes, loosen wheel nut/s slightly, raise the car and make safe by using an axle stand or similar then lower it so the wheel is off the ground.
Remove all nut/s and take wheel to one side, you'll then see the whole of the drum, there should be 1 or 2 retaining Philips type screws between the locating holes for the wheel, these need to be removed possibly with an impact screwdriver if too tight.
Once screws are out release the hand brake, hopefully the drum will rotate, try waggling it from side to side along it circumference pulling the drum towards you, it may move a few mm then lock? try using a very heavy rubber mallet to thump the outside edge of the drum whilst turning it. This hopefully will loosen the brake shoes holding the drum on you may need to keep doing this for a good while.
If you have no success then try carefully doing the same with a copper/hide hammer. Still no joy then possibly the lip inside is too great meaning the drums maybe beyond their wear limit so a good belt with a heavy lump hammer is the only way.
I hope this helped? please press the Blue button if happy with my FREE Efforts, Thank You!

SOURCE: i have a 1998 ford escort cx wagon, the clutch has

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!

SOURCE: cigarette lighter don't work can't figure which fuse it is.

if your fusebox is in the panel to the right of the ignition key, the fuse is number 29, this fuse also covers other items so it maybe that either the cables have come off the back of the lighter or it is faulty if the fuse is good. hope this helps.

                Need to know where the marks need to be for timeing belt on a 1998 ford escort wagon with a 4 cylinder. Thank You,


                You didn't say which 4 cylinder engine you have, whether it is a single or dual cam engine? I am assuming since it is a station wagon it is the single cam engine.
                On camshaft gear you should see a little arrow or pointer in one of the windows of the gear,it should be at the top and should line up with a dot on the head. The crankshaft pulley groove should be at the top and it should line up with a dot on the block or TDC/ 0 on the guage.
