    Thanks for the info but now I am very confused, I just located a website states it should take .9-1.5 hr and it is removed out the top without removing wheels, splash guards, etc.

I just had mine done, and the labor from my regular station was for 2 hours, but he might have given me a break on that. I know its a pain on focus because you literally have to pull a whell to get at where the alternator is.

Alternator tested pulling no amps, are these time consuming to change on a 2004 front wheel drive v-6/


Changing this alternator on these trucks are VERY time consuming. Labour cost can be about $300 -$500.00 plus parts.
The Alternator is located underneath by Crankshaft pulley, and the drive(axle) shaft has to come out to replace Alternator. A lift hoist is needed along with patience..
I would recommend you to see your service shop to preform this job..

Have a 2003 ford focus. idling problem


if you have 14 volts or more at the battery at 1000 rpms, the battery & alternator are fine. If you get the same surge when you turn the bower motor on high speed, it is just the normal load on the alternator as it puts out more current. The engine is supposed to compensate by kicking up the idle. It does this through the IAC, idle air control. You may need to clean the IAC passages and the throttle body passages. I also would clean the MAF sensor heated wires with carb cleaner or MAF sensor cleaner. The MAF is in the iar intake hose and has a 2 or 3 wire connector going to it. The heated wires are in the air stream. Then disconnect the battery for 2 hours to clear the "Keep alive memory"
It will relearn after you drive for 10 miles. May run rough for that time.
good luck.

Check your battery ground connections. Make sure the vehicle chassis (and alternator) is properly grounded.
Check for any loose connections around the main high current 12V supply fuses.
Check the clicking in the steering column is not a loose supply wire arcing.

Battery light


I would have to say that it is. I would recommend taking it to the nearest auto parts store and having them test the battery and alternator just to be sure it's not just the battery. Hope this helps.

Where is the radiator cap on 2003 Ford Focus ZTW


I do not believe that there is a radiator cap on the Focus. I believe that the coolant is filled from the what most would consider the overflow tank. It is an overflow tank of sorts but serves also to fill the radiator.
