I have had my focus for about 2 months and when I turn the car on, there is a very bad noise. I took it in and we found that the IMRC box is making the noise, sounds like gears grinding. Car runs fine, the mechanic said the part is around $175 and $80 to install.
I would like to find a place online to buy it, but cannot find it myself.
I would like to install it myselft since it does not look to hard. Is it?

^^ Mike of Hilbish Ford on this forum gives us discounted prices talk to him. The number is 800-849-0233 and ask for Mike in parts.

wow, thanks, got it for $100 + shipping :)
Is the install pretty straight forward, or is there any thing I need to watch out for?

install is very easy. Just take out the battery and airbox and it will take about 10 mins once that is done. unless you have all the air box stuff in. because it goes inside the bumper on the frame

it may not be the box itslelf.... follow the cable and i bet youll find the DSI Clip is broken and the cable is just pulling back and forth

I will have to check that. The noise came from the box when we had the car lifted. I have already ordered the part, so I guess I will look at it tomorrow and see if it is the clip you are talking about.
I have read about the clip, but don't really know anything about it. I am fairly new with the focus.

odds are that if the box is broken then it was caused by the broken clip.

I read somewhere on this forum that it is easier to remove the head light to get the box.
