Hi JesseE1981 & Hawktwoe,

Hmmmmm….’tis difficult to diagnose a symptom over the forum!

Let’s have the local Ford dealer take look at the Focus, and diagnose the underlying A/C cause. Give them a call, and set up an appointment as soon as possible. Also, shoot me a PM with your contact information, dealer name/state, approximate mileage, and VIN to begin the escalation process.

Hey ArticWhite,

A big WOOP to Prestige Ford for providing a solution to tame the tresses!

Hello raptor1956,

No doubt about it, we are working on the solution to the A/C problem.

It's the weekend - ENJOY!
