Free Play in clutch pedal
I just replaced my cmc and I am grateful NotoriousOne had posted his. I used a Dorman brand which has a metal housing. I wanted to get away from the plastic ones. Neverless installation went pretty good. My issue was bleeding. Tried pump method, then the mityvac which was better but still getting air bubbles. So I broke out the vacuum pump and had my son help me. This worked the best for me, just had to keep an eye on reservoir. Fluid was moving through system pretty fast. Did this until fluid was clean, but was hard to tell if all of the air bubbles were gone. Since the pump was pulling it out so fast. My question is there is some free play in clutch pedal. I don't remember if it was there before repair. Did a test drive and everything seems good. I might try and hand bleed it now.

And thanks for the tutorial! Although mine wasn't just a quick overview.
It was another 'how to' and I figured it wasn't necessary to create a third walk through to be put in the "HOW TO" archives.

Thanks to Oblivion
He gave a quick overview of some the tools you will need to do the procedure.

|SVTFsOnIcBlUe||I have to say thanks a grip for the write up. One thing I've seen no one mention are the 2 small clip guide that are on the cmc body. Took me nearly two hours of screwing around trying to line up the body with the brake pedal bracket because it just wouldn't slide in. I ended up studying the old one carefully and noticed a very small curve carved into the tiny guides that allowed it to slide over the metal bracket.I busted out my woman's nail file and ground the new guides down in the same way and it fit perfectly. What a pita! How come no one else had this problem? I know a picture would help describe it but I wasn't about to take it back out. Total job time was about 6 hours. If I did it again it would take me less than an hour.|

Check that mounting bolt while in there!
Wierd related news:
A month or so later, the huge clutch pedal bolt (the one the pedal swings on) snapped! I hadn't touched it at all; if I had removed it I would have likely seen wear and definitely at least greased it. The mechanic who fixed it said Ford no longer stocked the part, so he had to fabricate it.
Anyone else had this bolt problem? I haven't search the site.

|MisterJohnson||^^Sorry it took you so long, but I'm glad to hear you got it done. Learning to do it yourself and saving that money is a good feeling|
