Replacing Rear Box On 1998 Escort Estate

23 January 2011 - 08:13 PM

Hi everyone (again!) as you can see, I have a bit of a project going on with my mate's 1998 Escort estate (1800 TD) I have got to replace his rear box on his exhaust, as it is nearly hanging off! I have the part, just need a bit of guidance on how to remove the old one (Heard that they can be a bit of a pig to get off) What sort of tools will I need, and what's the easiest way of freeing up the old rear box? Thanks : )

Replacing Tailgate On 1998 Escort Estate

23 January 2011 - 07:52 PM

Hi everyone, I have managed to get hold of a decent second hand tailgate for my mate's 1998 (MK7?) Escort estate. I need a bit of help with the fitting of it, though. What's the best way to go about it? Also, is it always a must that you use de-ionized water when flushing a radiator and replacing the anti-freeze? Thanks : )

New Fiesta Scrubbing Out Left Front Tyre

08 January 2011 - 02:45 PM

Hi everyone, my 2010 Fiesta has started scrubbing out the LHS front tyre in it's leading edge. I have noticed that the front suspension has stared clonking over speed humps and the steering is pulling to the right. What could be causing this? I haven't kerbed any of the wheels. It's only done 3600 miles as well. Thanks : )

Looking For A Few Spares For An Escort Estate 1800 Td

18 December 2010 - 05:59 PM

Hi everyone, my Brother has just bought a 1998 Escort estate 1800 TD, but it is in need of some TLC (mainly bodywork) The tailgate is rotten and needs replacing. Where's the best place to look for one, and how hard are they to replace? Also, the rear box on the exhaust is full of holes and so he will also need a replacement one of these.

One last thing, the clutch pedal is a bit stiff and it's also a bit of a slow starter. It has done 83,000 miles though...

Many thanks in advance : )
