clutch failure

Recommended Posts

my sons escort started to have gear trouble, first crunching in reverse slightly then jumping out of fith gear, next it got stuck in fourth gear.

removed the gearbox to see the extent of the problem and found that a part of the clutch pressure plate had broken free and destroyed the gearbox.

 

pics of the gearbox and clutch.

Bloody ell! That's bad!

 

Has it just broken the clutch housing part, or has it broken part that holds oil?

 

If it's just the clutch housing, I'd be tempted to save the box!

 

 

bottom hole on the first pic looks like its taken a chunk out the oil ports :blink:

Nah.

 

For the price of second hand boxes it'd be easiest to swap the lot.

 

Nice pics though :)

whole box is wrecked, stuck in fourth gear, holes are into the parts where the oil is,tried filling with oil origonally but the oil pissed out between the box and engine joint.
