1995 Escort Wagon Clutch Replacement Help

First off, sorry for my lack of knowledge i will try to name the issues and parts the best i can. My wagon has been out for a couple months now as i haven't had all the time in the world to work on it every day. My most recent issue with fixing my clutch is that when trying to get to the clutch components, I cant separate the transmission case completely. It moves but hits part of the frame. Do i need to drop the transmission down completely to get it apart or is it easier than I am making it? Thanks for the help

Never changed an escort, but I've done a few front wheel drives, Generally you have to drop the subframe while holding the engine block up, I used cinder blocks. Hopefully someone has a few more details they can help you with that's escort specific.

Re: 1995 Escort Wagon Clutch Replacement Help

Years since I done one and may be different size of engines as fitted over here .But we just supported the engine and tilted / lowered to get clearance to remove .Just got be careful you dont put too much strain on engine mountings . Got to remember we were on a car ramp and using large axle stands / jack and not lying underneath with restricted movement .Just be careful it's well supported whilst manouvering in and out .
