How to replace2001 ford focus passenger side impact sensor

Open the hood. Remove the plastic cover that goes from the frame to the plastic bumper. Look down on the passenger side and you will see the sensor you're looking for. It is riveted to the frame. drill them out. replace the sensor. But this will NOT solve your problem. Airbag systems are really complicated, they keep them this way to cost you tons of money. Newer ones cost thousands just for parts..Labor is rediculase....

Where is the location of front crash sensor in a 2008 ford focus?

The crash sensors should be mounted off the front horn of the frame ( on either side). The sensors will be leads and wires that go back to the "black box" located under the body towards the front firewall. This is where the information us processed and sent to the airbag deployment system and allows for for fuel delivery shutoff.

Can i switch of the passenger airbag in my 2003 ford focus?

The passenger airbag is what is called a smart generation airbag, there is a sensor in the passenger seat that tells the airbag control module to turn off the bag if the weight is less than 50 pounds in the paswsenger seat, i.e. a child, I work for Ford and we will not turn off or tamper with or disconnect the airbag, why? if you get in a wreck and are hurt because we disconnected or otherwise defeated the airbag we would be liable for damages and a lawsuit.

If your Focus is a new model the passenger side airbag has a sensor that in effect weighs what is in the passenger seat, and will turn itself off if the weight is below a min, you will see an indicator lite up on the dash indicating this. If your Focus does not have this smart system then I recomment that you not tamper in any way with the passive restraint air bag system, to do so could cause grave personnel injury. Consault your local Ford dealer over the phone they will help.

Loose steering wheel

Disconnect negative battery cable(10mm).
Insert key and rotate steering wheel until one of the mounting bolts for the airbag are visible from the backside (7/32 or 5.5 mm).Unscrew and rotate 180 degrees until the other is visible.Pry airbag off with a small screwdriver (being very careful) release yellow connector and place airbag aside with leather or vinyl pointing up.
Use a 24mm socket and tighten to 37 ft.pounds.
Reverse procedure to re-install airbag.
Connect cable and remember the computer will have to relearn its settings so car may run different for a while..
