clutch master cylinder

7 posts in this topic

clutch master cylinder just changed one on a 1.8 ford focus est 52 reg

say in haynes manual start by removeing the steering column

well you dont have to

i found that if you remove the securing bolt from the sleeve

which joins the lower part of the steering column to the steering rack

it slip out and pushs up out the way i put a paint mark on it with wheels in a strate line save a lot of time messing about with the column

just thought i post to save you time dez ;) ;)

Perfect timing for your post, mine is leaking on the return stroke and will need to be done next week. Thanks for the info.

Hi

you guys seem to know about clutches, i have a 1.8 focus ghia, its a 51 plate.

The clutch peddle workes normally and i cannot hear any problems but it is quite often being really light to put to the floor, its like pushing a feather down and then it will go back to normal. Its only intermittend so the garrages cant 'fix it'

I also found a small amount of yellow/green oil under the car near the gearbox i suppose.. could this have anything to do with it?

Any help is really appreciated... Thanks

the yellow/green fluid you describe sounds to me like gearbox oil. clutch fluid is more yellow/orange.

is the brake fluid level dropping? the clutch uses the same resevoir as the brakes
