The best thing i would do is to go to a local garage or car shops (like halfords) and tell them your make a model and ask what they would recommend.

i would replace that while you have the gearbox and clutch out.

as for the clutch plates, im not sure if they are different for the 2 engines. try emailing some of the sellers and ask them to confirm if it will fit your car if you are unsure.

i think the endura is a diesel engine and zectec is petrol the endura will have a higher torx rating so wont suit your zetec :ph34r:

The 1.3 endura engine is a petrol. I'm sure the endura and zetec engine use the same gearbox to they would use the same clutch. Don't take my word on this though

If your talking about the release bearing inside the gearbox, it pops out the arm you mentioned.

ok then your problem might be because the zetec g/b is a hydralic g/b and your endura is cable g/b on a cable box the clutch cable runs into cockpit and on to the pedal but the hydralic ztec has no cable on top of its g/b there will be what looks like a bleed nipple and a pipe going into g/b so in theory they cannot be interchanged :ph34r:
