Customer Question
I have a 2001...

I have a 2001 ford au2 ute I have had trouble with the clutch and brake pedal cage bending and cracking under the dash. Is their a replacement cage available and the cost.

Mechanic's Assistant: Has the clutch been slipping? Are you having any trouble shifting?

No, the cage that carries the clutch and brake pedal is not strong enough to handle the clutch.The frame bends and cracks the pedal twists and consequently you have no clutch.Is there a modified cage for this fault

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model of your '01 Ford?

AU 2 6cyl

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your vehicle yourself? What have you tried so far?

I took it to a mechanic 1 year ago and he mig welded up the crack and straightened up the mount shaft which has cracke3d again

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Is there an upgraded cage for that model, as it is definetly a design fault

Hello there,

I've seen a few on early Falcon.

We use to add extra bracing strips when replacing the pedalbox.

Depending on how bad yours is now, and how good your local welder is, determines whether you can reinforce the box in situ, or replace it.

Heavy clutch pedal from heavy clutch pressure plate brings on earlier failure.

Hope this helps.

Gary
