Clutch Pedal Spring

If this is a repost, i apologize, i searched around and can't find the answer anywhere. A spring went flying off my clutch pedal one day when i pushed it in, i went and got a new one from ford, but i cant tell where it came from. Thanks for your help.

Might sound like a newb q's but will that cause the car not to start? I believe I'm in the same situation.


Last night I went to my mom's job to bring her some food. No problems with the car. 20 mins later when I'm ready to leave the car won't start. When I turn the key, no turn over, no sound no nada. The light dash is on and the radio comes on. So I had to leave it there for a few hours. When I come back and was about to pull the hood latch, I look down and see a spring and 2 wires (red/black connected to a plastic piece) hanging on my clutch pedal. Going over the thread and seeing the similarities I'm wondering if this is the problem.

Spring wouldn't cause that problem, BUT the connectors probably could...makes sense to me.

Hi all Just had the same thing fail on mine . I couldnt find the lower mount point staight off but I HAVE pics of where it mounts to for those that are interesed .

you can see the master cylinder pipes in the top pic ( this is looking inbetween the pipes to the pedal mounting )





zoomed in pic ( you can still see the remains of my spring in the pic ) .

The lower mount is a slip of steel with a slot , sticking out 90 degres from the pedal mount plate towards the clutch master cylinder pipes .

Hope this helps you guys out ???

Hey
Ive got a 2005 focus estate, and my spring went a couple of days back.
I got a new spring from ford for 4, and then put it in this afternoon.
My lower mounting point looked kinda different to the photos already posted, but im pretty certain that ive got it in the correct position.
I did take some photos to upload to this forum, but I can't see how - it looks like you have to host them elsewhere and link to them?

Anyway, here is my advice...
It's nearly impossible to see the lower mounting point from lying with your back on the floor and your head under the dash. However, moving the steering wheel as far out and up as it will go affords a nice view from under the steering column. I also held my camera phone up under the dashboard with its light on enabling me to "see round corners"...
When fitting the spring, do the lower mounting point first, holding the spring vertically above the mounting point, and hooking in by moving the bottom of the spring towards the front of the car. Once it's hooked in, flop the spring towards the back of the car, and it lands on the pivot of the clutch pedal. Then get a screwdriver, and pull the free end of the spring onto the hook on top of the clutch pedal.

Hope it helps someone...
