How to adjust the clutch on a 1999 Ford escort ZX2


The clutch is not adjustable it is fully hydraulic. That means it is self adjusting, if the clutch pedal engages high on the pedal and the clutch is hard to push you need a new clutch plate and pressure plate.

I need to adjust my clutch



Pre 1997/9 models of Fords were self-adjusting via the clutch-foot-pedal. The pedal engages a ratchet system called the QUADRANT & PAWL and is part of the pedal. The mechanism is very similar on older Ford models of: Escort, Fiesta, Sierra, Granada, Transit & others. Newer vehicles may have a Hydraulic Clutch from 1997/9 onwards, and these work differently from the cable & pully mechanism. Clutch-fluid can be bled to improve the ability to operate the clutch, however this is not necessarily a method of adjusting the clutch.

If your reading this article because you have a broken clutch-pedal then please read on.

If when pressing the foot-pedal it feels like cable is broken, or pedal is loose, ...This is symptomatic of failure of the QUADRANT & PAWL 'ratchet' mechanism due to wear of teeth on the ratchet.

In some cases the pedal fails to pull the clutch out far enough to change gear, and may make a 'springing noise'. This is due to slippage on some worn ratchet-teeth, but the mechanism has not reached full failure.
There are 2 ways to remedy the fault.

1. Change the Quadrant & Pawl, using only genuine Ford parts. #Beware of inferior mouldings that are not up to standard e.g. too soft, and do not trust 'pattern-parts' on ebay etc.

2. SHORTEN THE CABLE.
  • Disconnect the FOOT-PEDAL-SPRING to release the slack normally taken up by the 'Quadrant & Pawl' (ratchet) which is faulty.
  • Remove end of nipple from clutch-cable (engine-end).
  • Fill slack with bolts & washers or other filler.
  • Drill hole in LARGE nut & bolt (like split pin but inverted).
  • FIT NUT & BOLT TO REMAINING PART OF CLUTCH-CABLE NIPPLE.

ONLY CUT VERY END OF CABLE-NIPPLE LEAVING AS MUCH CRIMP AS POSSIBLE, ...then clamp the nut & bolt over the crimp. This is less likely to slip or even cut cable.

Clutch-cable should be able to be re-fitted without tools or tensioning the clutch-arm. Final tension of cable should leave CLUTCH ARM & CABLE SLIGHTLY LOOSE.

NOTE : Overadjustment of clutch can cause damage. Therfore only remove a minimum of slack from the cable.

Clutch assembly lost tension on clutch pedal are there any springs or fluids that need to be replaced?


Does the clutch still work and the car shift? You might have to replace the clutch master and slave cylinders...some of these also have a ratchet adjuster for the pedal.. you could look at this too.

Clutch self adjuster on a k reg escort van


the self adjust mechanism is made up of two pieces a pawl and ratchet. removing them is more awkward than difficult. you need to remove the clutch pedal by knocking out the pivot shaft that also supports the brake pedal just knock it out far enough to remove the clutch pedal after removing the clip. when the pedal is out you will see how it is assembled. the hardest part of the job is replacing the spring which is attached to the pedal this must be hooked back into the pedal last i find a strong piece of wire threaded through the hole in the pedal does the trick this is a job for someone who has some experience good luck

Escort clutch quadrant


you might have to use a rounded shaft screwdriver or similer to hold the quadrant back against the spring. Once on the pin the clutch is self adjusting and will be heard to ratchet up on first operation of clutch pedal.

How to install a clutch ratchet for ford escort van


Hi

If its the self adjusting pawl and ratchet on the pedal you're on about then its a nightmare, and your life will be so much easier if you actually remove the pedal assembly, fit the pawl and ratchet to it, and then refit the pedal assembly.

I think there are about 4 or 5 bolts if I'm not mistaken, a couple or three inside the car and a couple or three under the bonnet on the bulk head.

Once you've got the pedals off all will become clear.

Very best regards

Geordie
