Hi guys

Can anyone tell me what year the PAS was added too the escort van...ive just bought a M reg and the steering is just amazingly heavy.

Assuming it was a standard fit on later models would it retro fit too a van of my age..... :huh:

Many thanks in advance.

Have something to contribute?

M reg was the turning point on the Escorts, some M reg vehicles are the mk5, (no p/s) and some are mk6 (with p/s).

I am sure it can be retro fitted back, but you gotta change the whole steering rack etc

The MKb had squarer angled headlights, and a flater bonnet, and seperate indicators, the MK6 had rounder headlights and the front indicator is built into this unit, and the bonnet is a lot rounder.
