Question about 2002 Ford SVT Focus
I have a dog guard that I would like to put into my car but I need a tool to put the mountings in the rear pillars.. According to the instructions it looks similar to a pop rivet gun? I have asked atmy local ford dealer but they couldnt help me.Where can I acquire this tool please.It seems strange that an official accessory can be bought but no tool can is available through ford to install it.Your help would be greatly appreciated..Many thanks Mr. Williams.
When you brought the dog guard on the box it should tell you the make and models of the cars it will fit . Ford won't help you as thay want you to buy from them , what I can say is if the dog guard says it will fit to your car it will fit it without any special tools , if car car make and model are not on the box take it back and find one that fits your car or a universal one that fits most cars good luck colin

SOURCE: Replacing brake lines
Many issues can come into play when trying to mount prebent lines. First off, they are connected in
many of the same brackets as other lines, (ie.: fuel lines) . And sometimes because of the length and shape of a prebent line, other things such as the muffler routing, fuel tank position, ABS lines,
strut mounting can all " get in the way" of a one piece replacement. And of course all those lines would need bled of air when complete which poses problems if old bleeder screws are bad as well.
My suggestion would be to save the money on a factory bent line , head to or have towed to a
reputable garage and ask if they can service the lines, the experienced techs have ways of freeing
up a frozen bleeder, working around the hazards in the way with aftermarket replacement
brake lines and all the necessary adapters for proper connection. I have many years in the field,
and I have to say, YOU DON'T GET A SECOND CHANCE WHEN IT COMES TO BRAKES
Let the pro's do their job and keep us all SAFE. You wouldn't call a gardener to wire your house.
Ha Ha Ha I applaud your eagerness to fix things, but this is one thing I would let go.
thnx GT GOOD LUCK
PS Tell them what you have to work with and the quality shops will do what they can to help you.
The money you would spend on Dealer parts shoud be easily enough to more than cover the aftermarket repair.

I just did this for a friend this morning. Sounds scary bot it is easy.
1) remove P.S. fluid filler and pin it aside
2) remove radiator overflow canister and pin it aside
3) unplug wiring harnesses right over the alternator (back right of the engine compartment)
4) The scary part - remove the 3 engine mount bolts on that sode of the car
5) from the transmission jack up the engine just enough to tilt it forward slightly
6) it takes 2, tilt the engine forward and lift out the alt - you should have removed the belt at this time.,
7) take the sole (red) wire off of the alt.
8) finish in reverse order

On the left inside the boot behind the carpet is a blue connector, this has all of the wires for the rear lights. if you use a test lamp you can identify which wires do what and connect as you go. Use a self tapping screw for earth.

There are drains for the sunroof that are located in the coners of the roof, these plug up and the water drains into car, you will need to remove the cover were the seatbelt is and see if the hose that connects to the drain fell off or if drain is plugged, open the roof all the way back and using a bottle filled with water , pour over the drains one at a time and see if it drains if not you will need to use a coat hanger and unplug them but i would still check for the hose off on the side that leaks water. good day.
