two options just pull them straight up or they make a special tool that you can buy to do this. if you are going to replace plugs you should go ahead and do the wires at the same time.

Most likely this is the brake pedal sensor switch. It is mounted on the brake pedal arm, and it has a screw adjustment mechanism. You will need to adjust it by turning the screw so the switch does not make contact when the brake pedal is pressed.

If you have drum brakes in the back, they need adjusted out. If you didn't replace the drum you need to at least grind down the lip of rust at the edge of it. then adjust them.

How do you take out the rear drums out of a 2002 ford focus zx3 i took out the four nuts in the middle of drum and still didnt come out


You may have to loosen the brake shoes. And also "bang" on the drum with a small sledge hammer. Generally the will be rusted on and may require a good amount of force.

2001 Focus zx3 rear brakes- pads or drums???


If they look like a smaller version of your front brakes where you can see the disc (should be shiny on the side of the disc where the pad touches the rotor) then you have disk brakes.

If it's all black, or all kinda of rusted looking and all you see is a "cap" over everything behind the rim, then it'll be a drum...

95% of the zx3's have drums
only 5% of zx3's had discs. The ones that have disc brakes, also came with traction control as part of the package.

Rear drum removal 2004 ford focus drums


the rear drums on a focus are a pain to do,you have to remove the four bolts behind it and the drum will come off with a few taps of a hammer, the trouble is the bolts are hard to get to,you will need a 13mm socket and lots of extension bars. Be careful not to damage the brake pipes because they are very close to the bolts.good luck.
