      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.

  1. Vanishing clutch

    If that is the case then I would have thought that no amount of mis-adjustment would cause it to not work only infrequently. It felt as though the clutch pedal wasn't attached to anything.
  2. Vanishing clutch

    My wife has only infrequently driven my KA in the past but on several occasions complained at having difficulty selecting first or second gear when going slowly. I just poo pooed it as being that she was driving an unfamiliar car but now I have had it happen to me. Normally the clutch takes quite high up but yesterday, after stopping in a traffic jam, I put my foot on the clutch to change into first and the pedal just went right down and I couldn't select first - or second. It felt just as if the clutch had disappeared. I have had a similar problem on an old microbus but that was consistent and cured by bleeding the clutch. This problem with the KA seems very intermittent as I haven't been able to reproduce it since and I think, as I can't find any clutch fluid reservoir or mention of one in the handbook, that the KA has mechanical activation. Before I take it into the local Ford agents who will probably find some reason for charging an arm and a leg, even though its still in warranty, can anybody suggest some possible reason for this being able to happen?
