The starter is kind of hard to get at and you may have to get it out from under the vehicle but it is located at the back of the intake manifold on the drivers side its kinda tucked up under the intake near the trans mission.

I have a 2000 focus se, 2.0; needs new starter, where is it located?


The haynes manual isnt really much help with actually locating the starter. I know because i got the haynes manual to try and find the starter on my girlfriends 2000 focus. It tells you how to change it but not where it is located. I just changed the starter so ill give you the rundown. Underneath your car right where the headers connect to the exhaust there will be a black metal plate with 4 bolts about 4 inches wide and 6 inches long. The starter is behind that barely visible. Once you remove that metal plate you can clearly see the bottom of the starter with the starter solenoid on top. There are 3 bolts on the starter but you will only see the head of one bolt from the bottom. DO NOT remove that bolt first. Go to the top of the engine and remove the air hose from the air filter box. You will see 2 bolts that connect into the right side of the starter brace. It is a very tight space but once you get the bolts off now you can go underneath the car and hold the starter while you remove the last bolt. On my 2000 focus the wires dont give you much room for it to drop. My starter only dropped about an inch so you wont have much room to work with the wires which are located on the top of the starter at the right side of the solenoid. The wires lead into a plastic harness with 2 nuts on the right side of the plastic wire harness. Good Luck.

Where can I get adapter plugs for a Ford Focus to enable me to use an alternative stereo without butchering the wiring please?


Most stores that sell and install radios etc will have adapter harnesses and also face plates to make your install look professional and work as planned.
If you cannot get one, instead of completely cutting the original connector off, just remove about a 1/4" of insulation from each wire a few inches behind it and make your connection there. That way, if you need to use the old harness at any point you can simply tape over the gap and use it.

How do you remove am/fm cd player from 2005 ford focus


There is a plastic "plate" surrounding your CD player; on the back of this "plate" there are 4 plastic guide/retainer pins about 3/4 of an inch long. Generally located in the 4 corners of the "plate." With that in mind, using a taped-up, flat-headed screw driver(tape the flat end as to not scratch the interior trim) and simply and ever so lightly, pry the coin dish(below the "plate" mentioned above)out and away from the dash,opening a hand sizes hole. From that hole using the same screw-driver, using the same technique, remove the plate; being oh so careful because the temp control knobs, cig lighter, etc, come out attached to the "plate."
You will notice, I believe, 4 small octagonal plastic bolt heads protruding from the area right next to the player......remove those bolts, unplug radio and whalll-laah..
