      Posting in General Chat thread.   11/11/2017

      it has been noted that too many Members are posting messages in the General Chat area instead of the correct Forums. Any messages posted in the General Chat area that are not General Chat will be deleted without warning and offenders may recieve warning points if repeated instances are seen from that Member. There are plenty of different Club areas that encompass 99% of Ford related posts, please select and use the correct one. If anyone is not sure of which area to post something then feel free to P/M myself or other Senior Staff for guidance. The Moderating Staff are having to spend far too much time chasing this problem instead of maintaining the other areas of the forum.

    Escort Van
  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. Escort Van Gearbox Rattle

    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
