im about to do my clutch. never did one on a foci, but i have on front wheel drive cars before. what i did was pull the wheel off, then pull the axel to get to the trany. then you should have room to pull it out.
will this work w/ our car? or is there a trick to it?
the 2002 service manual states you need to drop the sub frame.
the 2004 says you just slide of off to the side and through the bottom removing the axel to do it. Seems pretty easy if you have access to a lift, a lil more of a PITA if you are doing it on jack stands.
I'm gonna make a How to in about 3 or 4 months, maybe earlier if I get vacation. Maybe by that time someone will beat me to the first how to thread for replacing SVT clutch. If not I will write one step by step and with lots of pictures.
From what research I've done a LUK clutch from E-Bay is better than the stock clutch and at a good price. The LUK clutch would be good for someone not wanting to add a lot of HP. LUK is what I'll do my write up on.
