Ford has a problem with a few focus steering rack/sensor interface assemblies.

End of story.
If anything worthwhile pops up I will post.
Fanddp, a replacement steering rack has arrived and is scheduled to be installed in my Focus Monday. The tech tells me this is the first hes had to replace of any Ford model that uses EPAS and has no experience. The sub frame has to be dropped down to get access since the rack is mounted to the top side of the sub frame. They are going to call me once started so I can see whats involved. I reviewed the procedure to replace the rack in my Audi A3 shop manual that I suspect is similar and the work is extensive. Do you know what parts were order for your Focus and have they arrived.
