Series II TXE clutch problem
I am currently having problems with the clutch on my 1991 2.0 TXE (248,000 miles). There is no adjustment in the cable between the point where the clutch slips and the gears crash, i.e. if I slacken off the cable to the point where it doesn't slip I can't select a gear without it crunching. Sometimes double declutching works, sometimes not. I have checked the clutch cable and release arm mechanism but they seem ok. I have replaced the clutch/cover and thrust bearing but this changes nothing. Is my gearbox (synchromesh maybe ?) or gear linkage suspect ?
