  1. Hi all, this may seem an odd enquiry but does anyone have a picture of a Mk5 escort van rear brake light laden valve fitted to a van? Mine was removed due to corrosion and i forgot to mark where it came from and what position. Any advice on how to position bracket / pics of the bracket and valve fitte would be great. Many Thanks
  2. Guess noone here has any technical knowledge on cars. I will have to go with my hunch on it being the gearbox imput shaft bearings and replace box
  3. Hi all, new here. I have a 1991 Escort 1.8D van with 91k on clock. It==The engine starts and runs fine and revs smoothly but when i turn it off there is a rattle from the gearbox area which is like 3 or so knocks (sounds like something is loose) There is also a small amount of noise coming from it as the cas is idling which dissapears when the clutch is depressed. If i turn engine off with clutch depressed there is no knocking! Is this the box or the release bearing? I have a feeling it the imput shaft bearings on way out Cheers
