Question about Ford Focus
Definatly a dealer mistake ,but as its uk then you have the consumer dept in teh local town hall,Whoever repaired this vehicle was not a qualified mechanic ,so firstly go back to garage and ask nicely ,if that doesnt work then tell them politely that you will go to the consumer office and your technical advisor is a associate member the institute of road transport engineers ,city and guilds motor vehicle technician of london ,and also a member of the illustrious colegio de enginerios a peritos de valencia ,alicante delegation .Also call fords themselves and ask about dealership responsibility ,01 592 3000 .Because it sounds like the mechanic used wasnt a ford trained mechanic ,the faults listed appear to me to be a vacumn pipe leak and the power steering pipe that was replaced hasnt been secured correctly and is vibrating against the AC pipe when the AC is engaged or the ac gas hasnt been recharged correctly if the pipes were removed to allow access as you havent stated the model of the vehicle

It sure sounds like several problems created by the work .. the air conditioning making so much noise might mean damaged bearings caused by over tightening the belt ... or by something touching the clutch/pully while running .. or even a loose belt that they failed to tighten properly .. they could have gotten power steering fluid into the AC clutch .. the air escaping sound sure sounds like a vacuum hose not attached or damaged .. all of these need to be checked by a competent mechanic .. they can all cause other more serious problems .. you should get someone familiar with your type car to listen to see if the sounds are unusual... your description does sound serious enough that they should recheck their work ..
