Question about 2002 Ford SVT Focus
No it is not an easy fix.front or rear? Fornt: Jack up the front end of the car after loosening the lug nuts.you ahve to take off tire Disconect battery Recomended. Disconect wheel sensor wire or abs wire(if equiped) then pry open caliper brake pads to allow easy removal. Remove the caliper Via the two bolts on the back. Remove the Break rotor by pulling out on the rotor. sometimes they like ti stick so you might have to hit it with a rubbro or plastic hammer. I have even seen it where it has to be heated to get the rotor off of the car. After you get that off then you can see the hub assembly. Behind the hub, below the strut are three bolts that have to come out. Usuall you cant get to them. So then you have to take off the axle nut and seperate the lower ball joint from the caliper housing and slide it out a little bit until you ahve the clearance to get the tool in there and remove the bolts. BUT if your Bolts are located behind the rotor on the front side of the hub then you have to put the car in nutral and rotate the hub hole to the front of each bolt to get a socket and extention through and remove the bolt. After all bolts are removed then hit the back of the hub on each side until it comes out and then replace with the new one and reverse the steps that i told you to put it back together. When it is together DO NOT TO FORGET TO PUMP YOUR BREAKS BACK UP TILL YOUR PEDAL IS FIRM. If you dont you wont have breaks when you drive it until it pumps themselves back up.
