Inside Line: First Line

by

Borg & Beck – Clutches

Early models of the Ford Ka (up to 1999) featured a concentric slave cylinder (CSC) that incorporated a screw fit hose connection, whereas after 1999 the design was modified to feature a quick fit push-on hose.

Many of these early vehicles will now have had the original designed CSC replaced with the latter, but if an early design is discovered, Borg & Beck offer a replacement CSC hose (part number HKD0001), which will convert it to the new push-on design.

First Line – Wishbones

The wishbones fitted to the StreetKa version are different to those fitted to the other models in the Ka range, so care must be taken when ordering these parts.

Although they look similar, there are important dimensional differences that will have a dramatic effect on the steering geometry and compromise both the vehicle’s handling and tyre life. First Line part numbers FCA6535 and FCA6566, plus fitting kit FSK6535 are the correct parts numbers for the StreetKa.
