    I think my altinator on my 05 focus is gone. I drove home last night and my whole dash was out. No speed, no Milage and no ngas or temp gauge either but a red blinking charge light, does this mean it's my altinator???

    Thanks

Yeah, if you take those studs out for the alternator it is a big help, I recall that there are 3 of them. Once those are out of the way, you can squeak the alt out by the side of the exhaust manifold if you flatten down the heat shield first. You'll have just enough room to get it out. Good luck!!

This method worked on a 2005 Ford Focus ZXW.

    ACTUALLY THE PREVIOUS INFO I HAVE GIVEN WAS FOR A 2.0LTHE 1.8L ALTETRNATOR IS HAS A DIFFERENT R&R.YOU SHOULD HAVE A QUALIFIED TECHNICIAN INSTALL IT! THERE IS ONE THING YOU SHOULD HAVE IS A T-BAR TO SUSPEND THE ENGINE IN THE AIR FOR WHEN YOU REMOVE THE PASS.SIDE ENGINE MOUNT;YOU CAN USE A FLOOR-JACK WITH A BLOCK OF WOOD;BUT IF YOU DO NOT HAVE PRIOR EXPERIENCE WITH THIS METHOD YOU COULD DAMAGE THE OIL PAN.ONCE THIS IS DONE,YOU SHOULD SHIFT THE MOTOR FORWARD AND REMOVE ANY BRACKETS ON THE ALTERNATOR AND IT SHOULD EASILY COME OUT.

Ford focus front strut replacement


basically remove the wheel ( after placing the vehicle on jack stands). remove the bottom ball joint connection ( bolts or ball joint with a ball joint splitter) use 2 spring compressors and close up the spring mark one bolt in the engine bay at the top of the strut so you know where the unit goes on reassembly The bolts control the wheel alignment)undo the bolts and drop the unit out the bottom. undo the nut at the top and release the spring clamps. Lift the spring and top plate of the shaft. Undo the insert nut and remove out of the tube. Insert new insert and reverse the procedure. A workshop manual ( genuine or after market will have the procedure in full with photos)

Can't remove the alternator! How do you remove the alternator on a Ford Focus 2001 without unbolt the engine mount?


The other option, but be warned could cause damage to the motor mounts, is to use a cherry picker to lift the engine up enough to clear the alternator from the engine bay.

Rear drum removal 2004 ford focus drums


the rear drums on a focus are a pain to do,you have to remove the four bolts behind it and the drum will come off with a few taps of a hammer, the trouble is the bolts are hard to get to,you will need a 13mm socket and lots of extension bars. Be careful not to damage the brake pipes because they are very close to the bolts.good luck.

Ford focus 2000 alternator and belt removal and fit


Just took one out last night. It also was stuck. Had to use small pry bar to get off the front mount. Sprayed the mount with PB blast to help. You do have to use some force, becareful not to break any electrical connections. Once the front mount was free, I had to pry up on it using a small hatchet. Only thing that would fit and actually be able to pry. The alternator became twisted from prying only on one side, so I used a block of wood and tapped it back straight. It finally released from the mounts and came loose. Then the fun begins in trying to actually get it out. Had to disconnect everything around it, took two people and alot of twisting and turning. Not looking forward to getting it back in. Removal took over 2 hours.
