03 focus shakes


remove the front disc rotors and have them machined as they are warped or damaged causing the problem under braking. The rotors are trying to make the disc pads move to the warp and this is loading up the cailper slide pins resulting in a shaking front end.

How to change the break pads for ford focus 2004


The following is from a tip I have posted for all cars but will work for yours, for removing the caliper bolt, a 7mm Allen wrench should be needed.
First Here is a list of what you will need. This list mainly applies to disc brakes but I have included a link for how to replace drum brakes with graphic images. All parts can be purchased from an auto parts or hardware store.
  • New Brake Pads
  • C-Clamp
  • Small amount of Brake/Caliper Grease (usually comes in a small packet)
  • A can of Brake Cleaner
  • Car-jack and lug wrench
  • A small bungee cord
  • Wrench/Socket/Allen Wrench (depending on your car)
  • A hammer (mainly for drum brakes)
  1. Lossen the lug nuts.
  2. Jack up the vehicle.
  3. Remove the tire from the vehicle.
  4. Use the brake cleaner to spray the brake pads and disc taking care not to spray plastic parts on the vehicle. This is done to partly protect yourself from the brake dust and to also clean everything and help remove rust.
  5. The following steps are for disc brakes, for drum brakes skip to step 15.
  6. Next, remove the caliper bolts, the heads will be located on the inside side of the caliper, the wrench needed will vary base on vehicle make and model.
  7. Slide the caliper and brake pads off of the disc.
  8. Remove the outer brake pad.
  9. The bungee cord may be used to keep the caliper from hanging freely. Do not allow the brake line to be bent or hold the caliper itself.
  10. Use the C-Clamp to slowly depress the inner brake pad as far as it can go. If any brake fluid leaks out of the reservoir, it may need to be replaced once brakes are replaced. Make sure to press the brake pedal several times between each tire having brakes replaced to help keep brake fluid from leaking. Some brake fluid may be siphoned beforehand to prevent loosing any fluid.
  11. If the disc is to be replaced, do so now, spray the new disc with brake cleaner to remove any residue. The disc should be replaced if grooves or chips are found on it, or if it is outside of thickness specifications of the manufacturer.
  12. Grease the caliper bolts.
  13. Put the new brake pads on the caliper and slide the brake pads and caliper back onto the disc and insert the bolts.
  14. Skip to Step 18 for disc brakes.
  15. For drum brakes, use the hammer, brake cleaner, and possibly a pry bar to remove the drum which should slide directly off.
  16. Use the brake cleaner to spray the brake pads and other parts within the drum to clean and prevent dust from being breathed in.
  17. Use the following link for better information on how to replace drum brakeshttp://www.2carpros.com/articles/how-to-replace-rear-brake-shoes-and-drums
  18. Mount the tire, bolt on the lug nuts, and remove the jack.
  19. Press the brake a few times and clean up.
Congrats on replacing the brake pads on your vehicle.

When i move the car, it grinds badly and feels like in wheels, its a ford focus. it does it backwards to


Your brake pads or shoes,have worn past the pad lining, and now the steel backing is ginding against your rotor or drum.
You will have to have the brakes inspected.
Please let me know what you find.

2001 Focus zx3 rear brakes- pads or drums???


If they look like a smaller version of your front brakes where you can see the disc (should be shiny on the side of the disc where the pad touches the rotor) then you have disk brakes.

If it's all black, or all kinda of rusted looking and all you see is a "cap" over everything behind the rim, then it'll be a drum...

95% of the zx3's have drums
only 5% of zx3's had discs. The ones that have disc brakes, also came with traction control as part of the package.

Re-assemble of front brakes on ford focus 04


This might sound dumb, but if you haven't used a C-Clamp to push the piston in the caliper back in, then you will not be able to get it back on. Also the guides for the two bolts will need to be gently pushed back so they are not in the way of the bracket. Hope this helps.

How to remove rear brakes (ie pads and discs) from a Ford Focus 04 1.8 TDCI


You will need a special socket which is square and has a small prong at each corner. That will screw the piston down to the the stop. As to getting the caliper off buy an inexpensive shop manual which will show the procedure with pictures, it is simple and once the pistons are seated into the caliper with the adapter I described you are home. I got my socket adapter at a neighborhood auto parts store. Don't forget to bleed your brake fluid.
