How to remove serpentene belt in a 2003 ford focus

There are 6 possibilities, here are the 3 engines with A/C...




Consulting your owner's manual should give you an idea of how to replace a belt depending on which belt it is that needs changing. Assuming it is the timing belt that needs to be changed it is a simple process to undertake, though if you are unsure of working on motor cars it may be better to take the vehicle to a garage for professionals to carry out the work.

Firstly check your owner's manual for the recommended mileage for replacing your timing belt. Replacement for a Ford Focus is at 120,000 miles. You need to locate the timing belt and examine it for breaks, damage, fraying, worn spots or looseness.

Disengage the negative battery cable in all models. Detach the passenger inner splash-shield and wheel cover, the accessory drive and timing belts, the tensioner and the crankshaft pulley. Remove the spark plugs, catalytic converter and idler pulley in 2000 and older Ford Focuses. Undo the retaining fasteners and lift the timing belt cover off the engine. Align the crank and camshaft timing marks. Older models call for undoing the water pump pulley and valve cover before locking the camshaft in place. Release the tensioner's bolt. Turn the arm to the right 14 degrees and place a 1/8 inch drill bit in the opening. This secures the belt tensioner in place; you can now take the belt off.

Once you have fitted the new belt you can re-assemble the parts which have been removed in the reverse order.

Hope helps.

What direction do you undo the bottom pulley on the engine block to get in to change the water pump on a 1600 zetec engine.

just done one yesterday and a diesel peugeot as well ,its easy on teh older models as it has a keyway unlike the focus ,put socket on nut and a long breaker bar then position it so its down a bit from lower track control arm and turn the key ,the starter motor will undo it for you ,remember to put a bit of locktight on the thread when rebuilding to stop it coming loose unless you have the special tool that locks the flywheel after removing the starter motor ,no locktight then a bit of contact adhesive will do the same job

My son has an automatic 2001 ford focus se.. It has bad vibrations under the gas pedal area and seems loud when driving.. The vibrations are there even when the car isn't moving.. The motor sounds...

Without seeing the car this can only be my best guess.

The exhaust runs out of the engine then between the engine and trans then right under the middle of the car, check your exhaust, look for missing or broken hangers.

The factory radio is ****, Ebay has many factory replacements, it seems the volume knob always fails first. To remove the unit go to your local Advance Auto or like and get the Ford radio removing kit, it's 2 bent wires O_o!

I do hope this helps.

2002 Ford Focus alternator replacement

I just did this for a friend this morning. Sounds scary bot it is easy.
1) remove P.S. fluid filler and pin it aside
2) remove radiator overflow canister and pin it aside
3) unplug wiring harnesses right over the alternator (back right of the engine compartment)
4) The scary part - remove the 3 engine mount bolts on that sode of the car
5) from the transmission jack up the engine just enough to tilt it forward slightly
6) it takes 2, tilt the engine forward and lift out the alt - you should have removed the belt at this time.,
7) take the sole (red) wire off of the alt.
8) finish in reverse order

Rear humming noise on my ford focus suspect rear wheel bearings

If the humming is more pronounced when you turn corners it is one of the wheel bearings.Listen to determine which side. They can be done easily DIY but only with some mechanical knowledge.The old bearing casings need to be removed from the hub using a small chisel or drift. The new ones need to be pressed back into the hub ideally but can be done using a hammer and a suitale sized socket.

Your DPFE sensor may need replacing.

I had to change mine , the part cost around $200 and for me , my sensor was firewall mounted so it was easy to do myself, two screws,two vacuum hoses different sizes and three wires. I suggest doing research on line regarding the sensor and where it may be on your car. I have a 01 Focus se 2.0 spi.

I am always telling people to obtain their own HAYNES repair manual due to the $$ that could be saved by doing some things yourself, or at least having some knowledge so some mechanics won't think you're an easy cash grab. Some mechanics tell me the book is **** but that is not true; it's always better to know how cold or hot the water is before jumping in....right.?!

Ford Focus Estate Diesel, 51 plate.

It turned out that the bulbs in the headlights had gone simultaneously. Luckily my son is knowledgeable about cars. He came over and figured out the problem. I had to purchase new bulbs, then my son had to practically dismantle the front of the car to change the bulbs. It was a complicated operation just to replace bulbs, and something I would not have been able to tackle myself. If it had not been for my son. I would have had to spend a fortune at a garage for a mechanic to replace the bulbs for me. What should have been a relatively simple task has become a mammoth operation. In years gone by it would have been a simple task that I could have performed myself. Why do manufacturers design cars so that it is so complicated just to replace the bulbs. There are so many things that have developed faults on this Ford Focus, I will never have another one.
