Hi all! Just returned from a clutch replacement job and have a question.

About a month before i needed to have the clutch replaced a blue plastic thing that was on the clutch pedal arm and depressed a button type thing snapped off. As a result the arm itself "hits" the button and clicks when depressed and released all the way. I noticed that my mechanic didn't replace the blue plastic part.

Should he have replaced this or is it nothing to worry about? BTW, as my favorite Euro poster would say "she runs like the clappers" now. What a difference a new clutch makes.

TIA!
Lance

Well my clutch didn't go to the floor before it broke, and the one that is in its place now goes all the way to the floor. I don't believe this is any big problem that you need to worry about. Although I don't exactly know what kind of button thing you're talking about, I have a 3gen. Either way I think it is probably nothing and you're just fine; the mechanics are pros and generally know exactly what they're doing. A lot of places put warranties on their clutches for like 6 months or a certain amount of miles; if you have any problem in the near future take it back and make 'em fix it right for you, they should do it.

that button is for the starter....only way ur car is supposed to start is when that button is depressed....(pedal to floor) as for clicking...naw,t hats not bad...If it starts sticking or youa rent grabbing when u let out clutch, thats when i'd worry.....

i remember my ford tempo used to click and it was on purpose...It was a self adjusting clutch and pedal....i dunno babout the escort cuz its a hydraulic clutch
