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: 1998 ford escort wagon brake lights out. bulbs and fuses changed.

have you tested the brake light switch? it is located at the top of the arm the brake pedal is attached to, it is very common for the wires to that switch to break inside the plastic insulation, the switch testing goes like this, there should be 12 volts present at both sides of the switch with the brake pedal depressed and one side without the pedal depressed.

Is there any brake fluid leaks anywhere?
Check your Brake Fluid Level in your Master Cylinder Reservoir. If it is too low, this will trigger the Brake Light. This is the number 1 reason for the warning light to trigger.
Also: there is an electrical connection adjacent to the Reservoir. Check this connection. Unplug, check the metal connectors (both) for any corrosion or oxidation (whiting) and remove this from the metal. Replug and recheck operation.
Further: what is the condition of your Brake Pads and/or Brake Shoes? Pads or Shoes that are worn out (very low) will trigger this.
Let me know if this helped, or if you have any additional infomation, problems or questions. Feel free to contact me at FixYa.com!

SOURCE: 1998 Ford Escort dashboard warning lights and gauges not working.

Sounds like possibly the ignition switch is going out. Try jiggling the key in the ignition in the on position and see if your lights come back on.

Hi, I have a 1998 Ford Escort SE with 2.0


The large end should fit the rubber grommet, so it goes down. The small diameter end should connect to the vacuum line.

Hi i have a 1999 escort van diesel the left side light keeps blowning fuses and i have no brake lights and the hand brake light stays on


Hi sounds like you have the usual escort van rear lamp nightmre start by removing the bulb holders in the rear lamps check where the wiring connecter conects to the lamp they should be clean and free of corrosion look for terminals that look black or have broken off the connecter this is so common there is a wiring repair kit available from ford to rectify this the other problem is with the bulb holders themselves should have two metal tags/contacts that pass power from the lamp to the bulbs these often corrode till theres nothing left replace them if they are like this also check you have got the right bulbs in the bulb holders they often get the wrong ones fitted causing all sorts of wierd back feeding problems to the electrical system the favourite is putting a two contact bulb in a single contact bulb holder this will cause nigthmares the other poular solution is to ditch the escort
rear lamps and fit ones from a trailer as they are made a lot better and give less trouble
