In the front of the engine,on the bottom, is a lug, a hole to grab the engine by if u jack up the engine as much as u can it will make it easier to take the alternator out from the bottom as it will give u more room this way.

I have a 2005 South African (so im told) Ford Focus that has just had its alternator done and now needs the security code to get the radio going again. I went to Sunshine Ford who were going to charge me...

You have to pull it out I am afraid? The older ones you could press button 6 and then button 2 and after around 10 seconds, the code comes up.(Try that first)..

Problem with alternator for 2005 Ford Focus.

Yes and no. Depending on conditions and idleing time that can determine life span. Also if battery is or was weak, belt misadjusted, did oil or anti freeze ever get into it. As you can see there are many factors in determining the expected life of an alternator. As a rule or guide line most will start going at around four to five years. Hope this helped answer your question, but electrical parts are the hardest to gauge.
