SOURCE: zx5 2004 ford focus alternator broken

disconnect the battery & make sur you have your radio code, then remove the belt.
it's pretty simple there's a nut in the middle of the tensioner wheel, get the right size socket & using a ratchet, move the tensioner by locking the rathet & do or undo the nut, as it's a fixed nut used to swivel the tensioner.
Then undo the wiring on the back of the alternator, usually a click in multiplug and a + power cable boted on with a 10mm nut.
then remove anything in the way of the alternator securing bolts, & remove the bolt's, alternator should be free !
But I don't suggest you do it yourself unless you have a reasonable grasp of mechanics, as I have had to do this job properly after some people have tried themselves & they've made it worse, plus once the belt's off you have no power sterring so you can't drive it to the garage if you can't get the belt back on !

Possibly is your glow plugs, best to change then all yourself if you can with just a ring spanner and a deep seated socket. Also not enough power in battery to heat plugs up in first place can be the cause. When deisels have been started a few mins, usualy start without waiting for glow plug to go out.

Where is located the 2006 ford focus of 2.0 engine coolant module temperature sensor


It doesn't have a coolant sensor it has a CHT, cylinder head temperature sensor. This type of sensor is much more precise measuring engine operating temperature.

Location of temperature sensor that operates the temperature gauge


Follow the upper rad hose to the thermostat housing. It will be there. There are two, one is the ECT (engine coolant temperature SENSOR) and the other is the temperature SENDING UNIT (input for temp. gauge ONLY). f83e91b9-4b48-476a-8c50-10735b376bf1.png

Engine warning light 2004 focus temperature rising


change your thermostat, and your temperature sensor. The sensors can have a tiny crack in them and cause a lot of problems. Once this is done you should notice a difference. Special note, check to ake sure your fan is coming on, and that your water pump is good. Remember if you change your water pump, you must change your timing belt. If you don't you will be replacing them both in under 6 months. Also make sure your coolant is still good.
