Service Intructions


Should a customer express concern about the transmission jumping out of reverse gear, the gearshift adjustment should be checked as detailed in the Escort Service Microfiche, Operation Number 16 513 0 and rectified as necessary. If the concern cannot be rectified by correcting the gearshift adjustment, then the transmission should be removed as detailed in the Escort Service Microfiche, Operation Number 16 114 0, and the reverse gear cranked lever should be renewed (see Parts Required).


The operation Transmission - Dismantle and Assemble for the B5 transmission is contained within the Escort Service Microfiche. The operation steps for fitting of the new parts can be taken from that description, as they are not affected by the differences between the B5 and the iB5 transmission. A description of the dismantling and assembly of the iB5 transmission will be contained in the next Service Microfiche (edition 09/95).



Only use transmission fluid that meets the specifications listed below.
