Question about Ford Focus

Open Question

My antenna is broken on my ford focus wagon. It is located on the roof just by the top of the windshield. I bought a replacement antenna with several adapter screws. But, the screw is sheared off in the antenna holder. Is this broken piece removable some how or does the whole part need to come off the roof and be replaced?

    I took the car in to my mechanic today, he is ordering the new part that is attached to the roof (from Ford, about $20.00 and most likely will need the $70.00 antenna. Small price to pay to have my radio back. I miss news and weather each morning during my 20 minute commute.

SOURCE: 2003 Ford Focus radio antenna broken off.

Should be a dome light in the interior that lines up with antennae on roof if it's same as I remember. Remove interior light and there should be screws in there holding base of antennae to roof. If it's just a broke off mast, try to unscrew stud from base & replace.

SOURCE: Tacoma radio antenna

Use an antenna wrench to remove the chrome nut (I found a wrench on JC Whitney's website). Once the nut's removed, do the following (copied from the factory service manual):

REMOVE ANTENNA ROD

(a) Turn the ignition switch to ”LOCK” position.
(b) Press the ”AM, FM” buttons on the radio receiver, and simultaneously
turn the ignition switch to ”ACC” position.
HINT:
�� The rod will extend fully and be released form the motor
antenna.
�� After removing the antenna rod, leave the ignition switch
on ”ACC” position.
NOTICE:
To prevent body damage when the antenna rod is released,
hold the rod while it comes out.
2. Auto Antenna Models:
INSTALL ANTENNA ROD
(a) Insert the cable of the rod until it reaches the bottom.
HINT:
�� When inserting the cable, the teeth on the cable must face
toward the rear of the vehicle.
�� Insert the antenna approx. 300 mm (11.8 in.).
(b) Wind the cable to retract the rod by turning the ignition
switch to ”LOCK” position.
HINT:
�� If the ignition switch is already in ”LOCK” position, do step
1 (c) first, then turn the ignition switch to ”ACC” position.
�� In case the cable is not wound, twist it, as shown in the
illustration.
�� Even if the rod has not retracted fully, install the antenna
nut and inspect the antenna rod operation. It will finally retract
fully.
(c) Inspect the antenna rod operation by pressing the radio
wave band select buttons.

You can buy a new power mast online (ex. Discount Toyota Parts) for about $30.

Replacing an antenna on a 2001 ford focus wagon-is it hard?


Replacing antennas on most cars is not hard, unless you have an automatically erecting antenna.

Simply unscrew the base of the antenna where it meets the body. Sometimes there is a little key, or tool specific to remove the antenna.

Replace in reverse order. :)

When it rains my information center located in the middle roof leeks really bad


The two options for the leak will be the antenna seal to the roof or the windshield just forward of the information center.
Does it leak only when your driving or will it leak when the vehicle is setting in the driveway?
If it is leaking when setting in the driveway, I would suspect the antenna seal.
If it leaks while driving, check the windshield seal.
You can use a garden hose to isolate the leak.
Good luck, let me know.

Replaceing a broken antenna mast on a 2005 Ford focus


I am pretty sure if you remove the inside dome light cover and take out the light there is a bolt and nut under there for the base that you can unscrew. By the way where did you buy the parts from, Ford is telling me $70 for the antenna whip?

Broken Ford Focus 3 door 04 reg Window Regulator. Can I replace myself?


If you search Google for Ford Focus Window Regulator replacement, you should find a great deal of information. The front doors are different from the rear (sedan, station wagon) doors. I've replaced the rear window regulator and it wasn't hard but the front window regulator is very different from the rear regulator.
