Question about 2007 Ford Focus (3 Door) Hatchback

2 Answers

I have a 2007 ford focus, I just replaced the passenger...

I have a 2007 ford focus, I had to get the passenger side a-arm & stabilizer bar replacd after my fiance hit a curb. the car drove fine for about a week after it was fixed now i am hearing clunking when i go over a speed bump or when i start to slow down. it's coming from the driver side, though. so i know the repairs on the passenger side are still okay. he's checked the wheel well, looked at the a-arm on the drivers side and everything looks fine. any ideas? I am hoping for a cheap fix, maybe just a loose bolt? i just spent $950 on getting the passenger side fixed along with an alignment... please help!

Check all the rubber mounts for the front stabilizer bar. It had to be taken down when the right side was repaired, and maybe it was not reinstalled properly, or a bushing was damaged, and it will bang metal against metal, producing a characteristic sound. If you hear it during turns or potholes, it might be the end bushings, if you hear it going into speed bumps as you say, more than likely it will be the 2 central mounts.

Ive got a knocking coming from the rear passenger side of my ford focus. i have renewed the bearings, shoes, cylinder but the noise is still there could it be from anything else. please help


check the rear stabilizer links. there will be a round bar than runs accross the rear suspension. There will be two links that attach this bar to the lower control arm. either one of the links is broken or the bushings that hold the bar in place are worn out.

What are swey bars on a ford focus


A sway bar is a suspension piece that keeps the left and right side of vehicle connected to help with turns. They are held together through sway bar links at each end, which are fairly common to break or rattle over bumps.

How do I replace the passenger side mirror on a 2007 ford focus?


On the inside trim, you can remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. Then you'll need to manipulate the panel and disconnect the door handle linkage from the door handle and disconnect the wiring for your controls. Then you can access the bolts that secure the mirror onto the door

Control arm and stabilizer bar


It would probably be a good idea to just replace all the bushings while youre at it. car has a few miles on it and there may be a noticeable differance from one side to the other in terms of handling if you just do one side. Just do it now and get it over with.
