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.

HYDRAULIC SYSTEM BLEEDING
  1. Check that the brake master cylinder is at least 3?4 full during the entire bleeding process.
  2. Remove the bleeder screw cap from the clutch slave cylinder and attach a hose to the bleeder screw. Place the other end of the hose into a container to catch the fluid.
  3. Have an assistant slowly pump the clutch pedal several times and then hold the clutch pedal down.
  4. Loosen the bleeder screw to release the fluid and air. Tighten the bleeder screw.
  5. Repeat the bleeding procedure until no more air bubbles are seen in the fluid.
  6. Tighten the bleeder screw to 52-78 inch lbs. (6-9 Nm).
  7. Top off the brake master cylinder to the full line.
  8. Check for proper clutch system operation. Fig. 1: Attach a hose to the bleeder screw and place the other end of the hose into a container to catch the fluid - 1991-96 model shown 90987g40.gif

Opel clutch pedal is broken


what do you mean by broken?
Is it;
a) just hitting the floor?
b) is there just no pressure?
c) or has it fallen off?

if its a or b the clutch cable has probably broken. or if the clutch has gone the pedal will feel the same but the car will not move.

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
