Frozen VSS in 1996 Escort 5-speed
Can anyone tell me if there's a trick to removing the VSS (vehicle speed sensor) AKA speedometer drive gear from the 5-spd transaxle? It's how you check/add fluid to the trans, but mine won't move. removed the cable/wire/bolt/hold-down fork/plastic upper body. Now just down to the aluminum plug/plastic gear, but won't budge. Tried heat/freezing, used oil, nothing works...Thanks, Henry.
