Question about 1998 Ford Escort
I have a problem with my brake lights staying on. I did find what looks like a rubber washer, about 3/4" wide and 3/8" thick along with what looks like a stem that probably belongs attached to the washer. Could this be my problem, and, if so, how do I rectify it?
I had the same problem. There was an extra washer but the post broke off as soon as I tried to push it through the hole. I use a large, upholstery type tack with a rounded top and stuck the old washer on from behind to hold it in place. Cost $0.00 !

I think I have the same problem... I have a 98 Ford Escort, and I noticed yesterday that my brake lights won't go off (until the it runs the battery completley down, obviously). Where would this rubber washer/bumper be located in my car?

The same thing just happened to me.
Take the washer to the dealer. It is called a bumper. Cost me $3.20.
Just takes a little muscle to jam the new one in place.
