  1. Clutch Help Please

    Thank you. I'm not too unhappy with £80.81 for the three piece kit. One place I looked at wanted over £60 for just the cylinder. Found a couple of cylinders at around £30 - £35 so I don't think it will make too much difference by the time I've also bought the plates. At least if I have any problems with a three piece kit I won't have to worry about two different suppliers trying to pass the buck to each other.

    I see. They were the company I first contacted, and who asked the initial question about if it has a release bearing or a concentric slave cylinder. With the help of everyone here I appear to have tha answer now, so I'm happy thank you. Waiting for some bike bits now, as I had a fork seal go on Sunday. A big THANK YOU to everyone here.

    Thanks to you and the others for your help Chris. At present it looks like I'll be going for this one. Would rather pay a bit more, as I know you only get the quality you pay for, but I can only have what I can afford. That's life. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/400300903152?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649

    Chris, is that chassis number the VIN, as shown in the little space at the bottom of the windscreen nearside. If so I believe I have it correct as WFOAXXGBBAYGO1796.... Thanks

  8. Clutch Help Please

    Thank you Chris. Especially for replying so quickly. My main concern is getting the right part so the job can be done in one go. A mechanic friend will be doing the job on his employer's premises (with permission), and it's not really practical to leave the car there, with the job half done, whilst getting replacement parts; if the first purchase is not correct. Recently became unemployed, so don't really want the expenditure of a double order if avoidable. Do you have any idea, if I went directly to Ford, what information they would require to give me a definitive answer. I was a Hillman Avenger man for years, and would not have had any problems with one of those, as I have all the manufaturer's original workshop manuals, full parts lists with every possible option listed etc; but I'm fairly new to Ford & haven't got familiar enough with them yet. Is the entire clutch different, or just the bearing? Thanking you in anticipation Bill
  9. Clutch Help Please

    Running a late (September 2000) 1.8i MK2 Mondo hatchback & the clutch has just gone. Made enquiries to an eBay seller about purchasing the correct part, giving vehicle details (including registration). My question was: This item appears to suit my requirement, but would like to double check. My car: Sept 2000 registered MK2 Mondeo 1.8i Petrol Hatchback. Reg No X909LAX I got a very quick reply Please can you verify the vehicle is equipped with a release bearing or a concentric slave cylinder, as both variants show up for the vehicle.' I'm no mechanic, just an owner trying to buy in the correct part for someone else to fit. Can anyone please advise me how I can find the answer the the seller's question. Any help would be very much appreciated. Thank you.
