I'd give ford a call. That new of a vehicle there shouldn't be any condensation in them. If it is still under warranty they should replace them at no charge.

2001 ford focus power steering pump parts assembly diagram


You don't want to rebuild the pump. Get one for around $45. Yeah you may have saved $20 by getting the seal kit. But if the fiberglass vanes inside are worn, you just wasted your money. It will do the same thing, whine or hard steering.

Where is power steering resevoir on focus 2006 1.6 diesel


There was an issue with the steering in that 04-11 focus... let me see if I can find the problems they've had for you.

Ford Focus fuel pipe leak (2004-2011 cars)
Cars built between July 2004 and February 2005 could have had problems with their fuel return pipes leaking. The pipes were made from material that degraded over time, allowing fuel to seep out.
Ford Focus wiper motor problem (2004-2011 cars)
On early second-generation cars built between April 2003 and March 2005, there were issues reported with the wiper motor. Water could enter the motor through the arm spindle, and if it contained salt, could short-circuit it and cause the motor to overheat. This could lead to trim melting around the motor.

Ford Focus engine failure problem (2004-2011 1.6 TDCi cars)
1.6 TDCi Focus models built between February and June 2004 might have problems with their engines, causing them to cut out. Misaligned oil feeds between the cylinder heads and camshaft bearings reduced oil flow, causing premature wearing of the camshaft bearings and engine seizure.
Ford Focus brake pedal problems (2004-2011 cars)
Cars built between November 2005 and December 2006 could have developed problems with their brake pedals. In particularly cold weather, the pedal could become stiff, as the non-return valve in the pump began to stick.
Ford Focus roll-over protection problems (2004-2011 CC cars)
On some Ford Focus CC models it was found that there were issues with the roll-over protection system. Securing bolts holding the system in place were either loose or not fully tight. Therefore the protection would not be fully effective. Ford should have fixed this for free, so make sure the work has been carried out.
Ford Focus cooling fan problems (2004-2011 1.6 TDCi estate car)
On some Focus 1.6 TDCi estates built between July 2004 and December 2006 there were problems with the cooling fans. Where roads are particularly salty, corrosion could easily occur, reaching as far as the control module. In extreme cases this could cause it to overheat, which could lead to fire.
Ford Focus rear hub bolt problems (2004-2011 cars)
On some Ford Focus models built between February and April 2007 there were problems with the rear hub bolts. They could come loose because they weren't made to the correct design specification.
Ford Focus power steering problems (2004-2011 cars)
Ford Focus models built between April and May 2008 could have had problems with their power steering. Some of the hoses fitted were not to the required specification. The hoses could degrade and allow hydraulic fluid to seep out, which could either cause the power steering to fail or, in more extreme cases, cause fire when the fluid became hot.
Ford Focus risk of fire problem (2004-2011 cars)
Hatchback and estate 1.6 TDCi Ford Focus models, manual and automatic, built between January 2006 and January 2007 may have a risk of fire unless they've had their cooling fans checked. Salty roads could lead to corrosion, overheating and fire if not sorted.
Ford Focus water leaks (2004-2011 cars)
On second-generation cars, some owners have reported water leaking into the cabin. Check any sunroof or window seals before you buy. Also look for damp carpet inside, because it could have become mouldy if left untreated.
Every one of these issues should have been remedied by Ford for free, so make sure the work has been carried out.

The headlights in my 2006 Hond Pilot continually have condensation in them after a rain or when washed. What could be causing this?


what usually causes this problem is that the headlight vent is plugged this is used to equalize the pressure and temperature of the air between the inside of the headlight shell and the outside air.if there is no vent then what shops do is remove the headlight assembly and drill a little hole or two on the bottom of the shell into the area between the front and back of the headlight shell this will usually fix the problem. if there is alot of moisture in the shell then dry the shell out as best as possible

1999 ford taurus with moisture in the headlights


Most headlights lens are sealed up to prevent this problem. A broken seal or a crack somewhere opened up to let in moisture.
You can drill a small hole on the lowest part of the plastic headlight housing to let the water drain out. Or, replace the plastic headlight assembly with a new sealed one.The plastic headlights turn yellow and cloud up over time (not because of moisture inside, because it's plastic getting ruined by the weather and the sun). This problem reduces headlights from putting more light on the road.
The only thing you can do with moisture inside the headlights is to drain out the water that builds up. The seals on the headlights are bad right now and are going to keep letting moisture in. I would replace the both headlight assemblies for new sealed, clear ones.

2005 Ford Escape Headlight Condensation


most of the time the headlight assemblys are replaced because of this at my work (toyota dealeraship ) but i would try to take apart the headlight assembly very carefully by prying up the tabs and glue that attach the front to the bach then clean out and reseal, or you could try to use a clothes hanger with a small amount of cloth or paper towel taped to the end and insert through the hole where the headlight bulb goes may take some time but could save you a considerable amount of money hope this helps

Condensation in car headlight


Composite headlights tend to do this in time. Pull the light unit, and run a small bead of silicone around the assembly where the 2 pieces meet. Also check the seal on the bulb itself. If it is cracked or loose, replace it.

Condensation always in headlights.


Hi, the moisture in the headlight units is most likely caused due to a failure in one of the rubber seals where the bulbs push through into the headlight unit.

Have a check to see if the bulbs are seated properly, they are normally held in place by metal clips, sorry I'm not familiar with this particular model so can't give specific advice. If the seals are ok, could be that the moisture managed to get in somehow, and now is sealed in the unit.

To get the moisture out, you'll need to remove the bulbs from the headlight unit so that the moisture can evaporate out and then re-fit the bulbs to seal the unit again.

Hope this helps.
