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.

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?

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?

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 ?

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!
http://ww2.justanswer.com/uploads/jo...3655_latch.pdf

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?

Lube didn't work then do this please:)

My 2007 ford focus rear door also will not lock manually or with the remote. Report this issue on Safercar.gov https://www-odi.nhtsa.dot.gov/ivoq/ This is a safety issue because our kids can just open the rear door because you have no ability to lock the door and/or use the child safety lock feature. This happened to my 2007 Focus and dealer asked for $500. Please report all car issues to the people who force the Auto companies we just bailed out to fix our cars. You are leaving the public at risk. If your kid or a disabled passenger opens the door moving down the highway and falls out of the car because of this issue; Ford is going to pay big time lawsuits on this one. REPORT REPORT REPORT!!! Will you help each other and submit your car safety issues to the authorities? Please let me know if there is something else I can do to get FORD to Fix this issue!
