    Battery red warning light comes on about 20 seconds after starting Ford Focus S/Wagon -2001. Mechanic checking alter for charge says it is producing 13.5 volts even with the warning light on. Any clues? Is this a common problem? Is the Focus noted for alternator problems? Please comment.

    my battery light stays on as well, even after a battery replacement. the next step would naturally be to replaces the alternator but will that even turn the light off. has anyone ever replaced an alternator on this vehicle? is it difficult?

Can't remove the alternator! How do you remove the alternator on a Ford Focus 2001 without unbolt the engine mount?

The other option, but be warned could cause damage to the motor mounts, is to use a cherry picker to lift the engine up enough to clear the alternator from the engine bay.
