No u don\'t have to as long as you don\'t mind sweating. Your buddy didn\'t have to cut any lines as they are bolted on in most cases. Hopefully the lines are cut where you can get a couple compression fitting and hook them back up if you want air conditioning.

SOURCE: How to remove rear brakes (ie pads and discs) from a Ford Focus 04 1.8 TDCI

You will need a special socket which is square and has a small prong at each corner. That will screw the piston down to the the stop. As to getting the caliper off buy an inexpensive shop manual which will show the procedure with pictures, it is simple and once the pistons are seated into the caliper with the adapter I described you are home. I got my socket adapter at a neighborhood auto parts store. Don't forget to bleed your brake fluid.

No you don't have to move any of that you need a "crow foot" type oxygen sensor it looks like a short brake line wrench that you can put a 3/8 ratchet on it with an extension. This will help you to get this sensor out. Good Luck

SOURCE: cruise control

The cruise control should have a fuse in the interior fuse block, and a larger fuse and/or relay under hood in the relay center block. Test them with an automotive test light (You can purchase these for anywhere from $5.00 to $50.00 depending on the quality you want and the place of purchase).

If you find a bad fuse or primary fuse, obviously those need to be replaced. Relays can't be tested readily using the light. Unfortunately the simplest method for finding out if a relay is bad is to replace it. The relay for that cruise runs between $15.00 to $20.00 depending where you purchase.

Let me know how it goes and we'll see what more we can do!

Hi, You need to plug this into a code reader and see what codes are stored the most common reason for the engine cutting out is internal fuel pump failure will also cause poor starting

2002 ford focus what to do if engine and radiator freezes


If the radiator has plastic end pieces, they probably cracked, too. Pull the fan off, and see if you can spot the leak. The fan will have to come off anyway, if you have to remove the radiator. If the radiator is leaking, compare the price of repairing it at a radiator shop, versus buying a new or used one.
Good luck.

Facing car right hand side lower radiator remove drain plug on cold engine. If your radiator is bad the hoses are old to cut hoses off one top one lower. Have a shop discharge AC.Remove fan connectors.Remove the front fascia (the front of the car blocking the radiator from coming out. The painted part like you got hit in the front and had to replace the front cover) Remove AC lines. Remove transmission cooler lines. Remove push pins holding top plate on radiator. Remove right and left push pin brackets.Remove AC condenser side brackets.Lift up condenser and set back down in front of radiator.Lift radiator out and remove cooler and fan Assembly.If you want the original antifreeze go to dealer or Napa Zerex G5 same thing was 15 a gallon takes 1 and a 1/4 gallons + distilled water 50/50 Sounds like a lot of fun let me know how long it takes

Need to change radiator on 2006 ford explorer


THE EASIEST WAY TO REPLACE THIS RADIATOR IS TO REMOVE THE FREON FROM THE AC SYSTEM, DISCONNECT THE LINES GOING TO THE AC CONDENSER, REMOVE THE FAN SHROUD TOP AND BOTTOM, THEN REMOVE THE 13MM BOLTS ON THE UPPER PART OF THE RADIATOR SUPPORTS. REMOVE THE AIR DIFLECTOR ON THE BOTTOM OF THE VEHICLE, REMOVE THE AIR FILTER ASSEMBLY. LAST YOU NEED THE TOOL TO DISCONNECT THE TRANS LINES. ONCE THIS IS DONE THE RADIATOR AND THE CONDENSER WILL COME OUT IN ONE PIECE. AFTER THIS IS DONE YOU CAN EASILY REMOVE THE RADIATOR FROM THE SUPPORT.
IF YOU DO NOT HAVE THE TOOL TO REMOVE THE TRANS LINES YOU CAN UNSCREW THE TRANS LINES FROM THE RADIATOR. YOU WILL HAVE TO REMOVE THE FITTINGS OFF THE NEW RADIATOR AND USE THE OLD ONES. ONCE YOU HAVE THE RADIATOR IN PUT THE FAN SHROUD BACK IN AND TIGHTEN THE BOLTS. THEN IF YOU HAD TO UNSCREW THE TRANS LINES DUE TO NO TOOL, REMOVE ONE OF THE FITTINGS OFF THE NEW RADIATOR AND SCREW THE OLD FIITING BACK IN AND TIGHTEN IT. THEN REMOVE THE OTHER TRANS FITTING AND SCREW IT IN USING THE OLD FITTING. DO NOT REMOVE BOTH OF THE TRANS FIITINGS ON THE NEW RADIATOR AT THE SAME TIME OR YOU WILL LOSE THE RESEVOIR IN THE RADIATOR. ONCE THIS IS ALL DONE EVACUATE THE AC SYSTEM, RECHARGE THE AC, FILL THE RADIATOR WITH COOLANT AND YOU SHOULD BE GOOD TO GO. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND REPLACING THE RADIATOR, THERMOSTAT, AND THE RADIATOR CAP AT THE SAME TIME. I BELIEVE THE THERMOSTATS IN THIS VEHICLE DO NOT OPEN AS DESIGNED WHICH CREATES VERY HIGH PRESSURE IN THE COOLING SYSTEM WHICH CAUSES THE RADIATOR TO FAIL PREMATURELY.
AFTER STARTING THE VEHICLE CHECK THE UPPER RADIATOR HOSE AND MAKE SURE IT IS NOT ROCK HARD, IF YOU DID NOT REPLACE THE THERMOSTAT. IF IT IS ROCK HARD REPLACE THE THERMOSTAT.
THINGS TO CHECK:
CHECK THE RAD/CONDESER SUPPORTS FOR CRACKS YOU MAY FIND THEY ARE BROKEN IF THEY ARE REPLACE THE SUPPORT. IT IS AVAILABLE FROM FORD.

Need to replace ac condensor on 1999 taurus how do you do it


If your AC system is empty...The condenser is in front of the radiator.
1. Use ramps or jacks or a lift to raise the car so you can work under it.
2. remove the splash guard under the radiator.
3. Remove the bolts holding the tranmission cooling lines. These also may also hold the bottom of the condenser on the AC line side. Move the cooling lines away from the AC lines.
4. Remove the nuts holding the AC lines to the condenser. You may have to hold the fittings with a vise wrench to prevent bending the pipes.
5. Remove the other lower condenser bolt and use the access holes to remove the top bolts holding the condenser.
6. Lower the condenser out.
Reverse procedure to install the new condenser.

If you have the correct tools, this is a fairly easy job.
