In Topic: Can Steering/tie Rods Be Replaced In Situ On A Mk2 Focus?

Hi Damian,   Ian is right, but you will need a special tool to do it, the rods are commonly known as (drum sticks)  I would recommend a garage to do the work.

yes the levers are used so that you do not damage the door card or the clips, you can use screwdrivers, you will need two one for each side of the clips, when using screwdrivers you need to take care so not to damage anything, once you have a couple of clips unclipped the rest will be easy.

Hi,  getting the door card off is only half of the problem, there is an inner panel as well, with around 10 screws holding it on to the door, plus electric plugs, and the inner door handle. you need a basic set of tools and some forked door levers plastic type to get the door card off. having an Haynes manual No 4807 will help you

Hi Kev,  its an easy job just basic tools needed, if car maintenance isn't your cup of tea, a garage is fine, it will just be the labour costs as you have a headlight on the way. if you know the garage you may get a good deal..
