Question about Cars & Trucks
Ford focus changed engine 16 se zetec but replacement has a knock sensor as mine didnt now nowhere to plug it in
If your original engine didn't have a knock sensor, but the new one does, don't worry about it. You can safely remove it or just ignore it.

Follow the upper radiator hose to where it attaches to a housing (2bolts hold the housing in place) remove the hose clamp here and then remove the housing bolts, inside the housing is your thermostat. Clean off the surface of the housing, and where it attaches to the engine. Install the thermostat, and a new gasket (or O -ring ), carefully replace the housing, being sure the thermostat doesn't slip out of position, tighten the housing bolts, reattach the radiator hose to the housing, add coolant to proper level, check for leaks, u r good to go! Make sure the thermostat is installed in the right direction, if put in backwards the car will overheat. countrycurt0

SOURCE: Focus timing belt replacement.
This is a very very easy timing belt setup. first off you have to remove the valve cover. Then you have to remove the serp belt. Then remove anything thats in your way of the front cover. after you remove the crank pulley re-install the crank bolt. DO NOT LOSEN THE BOLT FOR THE TENSIONER!!!! now spin the crankshaft until the sproket aligns with the timing mark. now at this point the two camshafts should be aligned. now there is a special tool from ford that holds the cam shafts in place. all it is is a 1/4" peice of metal that goes on the left side of the cam shafts to hold them into place. if you mark the cams you wont need the tool. or if you can find something to fit in the left side of the cams that will work too. anyways after that its just the same steps in reverse. very easy to do.

get a plug spanner (more a socket than a spanner) and after removing the plug lead, use the spanner to remove the plug. Do one at a time so you dont get the leads mixed up or it will not start.
