  2. Ford Focus Mk1 Common Problems Thread

    Hi all.... Had my 2007 ford focus sport from brand new and the locks especially in winter always gave me trouble. You would push it shut and it just bounced off the latch, perseverance and it would shut and winter a kettle of boiling water. Now the passenger side isn't shutting at all just bounces off the latch. I put some grease on the latch and it moved when i tried to shut it its the lock wont clip over the latch on the car....the door hits this but the clip wont pull over.the The latch slides in the door lock comes down over the latch...this isnt happening. Thanks Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  3. Man o man this has been doing my head in for 3 years and now its both front doors it time to do something about it. 2007 Focus Sport owned from new.... Front drivers door used to not close corrrectly it would bounce back but only during frost so i had this down to just winter causing it. Now the front 2 doors have a problem closing at anytime of year, when you close the door it only half catches on the lock you need to close it with the exact amount of force a gram to much force and it wont close. The doors just kind of half close.... Read about recalls with earlier models and also read ford still use the parts on my focus... Where do i head will new door latches cure this ? dont wanna throw money away but its a pain. Thanks Mark
