You are retarded nobody bailed out ford you crybaby!

You car is out of warranty and you can fix it by stop being a dumb ass and take it apart like i said.. Or buy the new part i think its like 300 for the part its a all in one unit thats why its expencive.
Jus complaining online isnt gonna do shit...
Its gonna make ford look bad when in reality its not a common problem on a 8+ year old car
Also i hope idiots do open the door and fall out... the child lock works just cant lock the outside part... I worked for ford i did this to my car either 2 or 3 times it only happens when idiots use the indicator as a lock switch button you use the drivers/ front passenger lock key to open the locks only....

liampetraska I have this issue on both of my rear doors now. Can anyone help out by telling us how to fix this without having to take to the dealer?

I found this!

Looks like a walk through to get to and remove the lock assembly. Obviously, the PDF covers the front doors but the rear doors are probably close to the same. I don't have a garage so does anyone want to try this out?

ford2005 my focus zx4 2005 has the same problem, after i press lock button on the remote, rear door won't lock. i noticed that at least four years ago. take to dealer, asked for $189 to check it.
I thought it is a defect, isn't it ?

jcjhl69 Can you tell us how to get the lock assembly out so we can inspect it and clean it up please.

Sean05 Just happened to me again!! I took the lock apart and the little plastic gear was Jamed moved it with the switch while it was opened and put it all back together and it works like new!

FF Focus I ran into the same problem did anybody have this issue that was covered by a recall?

it seems just the latching of the door is part of the recall?

znav99 Wow!. i thought it was just my 06 that has this problem. I didnt find any TSB for this year model focus on the web.

I just got my Focus exactly a month ago, and we got the Extended Service plan with it, would they be able to replace/fix this though its an 06 model?

andysouza3235 I don't remember exactly, probably should have taken pictures. From what I remember, I had to take the inside panel out and it was right there.
