So here it is but it needs a little help. I bought it like this except the bumper was broke and zip tied and the fender was pretty much folded in.




1) I know it needs paint and not just on the front all around the car there are chips and the clear coat is coming off so I'm gonna paint it all around when the money comes(anyone know how much it will cost or a round figure)





2) The hood is not only losing its clear coat but it has a dent in it so I might change that.




3) The front driver and passenger windows are scratched so they will be changed before tinting it.




4) My windshield also has a huge scratch so it will be replaced too.




5) The antenna is broke so I will probably go to a stubby one just so it will look right, I really don't use a radio much anyways.




6) I like the mud flaps look and it protects my car from chips and mud so they will be added before the paint starts spraying.




7) I want to go back to the stock airbox, don't know why exactly but I like the stock look.Bought but NOT installed yet




8) I think it still has the stock muffler but the tip must have fell off or something so I will need to get one of those( any suggestions on exhaust I wish it was quieter but don't want to spend no more then 150 if that could work).





9) The Ford emblem on my steering wheel is all folded up so I need to fix that, any suggestions I have no clue on how to fix.





10) The passenger air bag is also a little wrinkled so I want to fix that too.





11) Whoever changed the intake on the car left the blow by left with no hose so it is blowing everything everywhere. I think I can just put a hose on it and work it to where it goes up and under the car. Suggestions are welcome though. Fixed



12) Back hatch leaks into spare tire area. FOUND but NOT FIXED yet



13) Thought about Plasti Dipping my wheels, maybe Anthracite grey with a little gloss but not to much.





14) Last but definitely the worst in my eyes, as I have never been
able to do body work. The hood and driver fender don't want to line up very good. My hood tries to eat the driver headlight and the fender rubs the driver door(it aint just the fender, the door has a crease but I think I can fix that) and takes the paint off. I don't know if this is the reason but my headlights aren't very even either, one shines really high and it is just weird. FENDER NO LONGER RUBS





SO PLEASE HELP




ALL SUGGESTIONS ARE WELCOME




I'm only 16 and I mow for money so cash flow has stopped now but
will start soon. If there is any way you think I could fix any of it my self it would help. I tried to figure this up $3000 is my estimate, hopefully I went high so I can keep some mulah but I think that will be about the cost of it.


I know the fog lights and etc are missing but I all of that and just haven't added it yet.

I forgot about my air condition leaks into passenger floor. I think it comes from that part in the 4th pic but I don't know how to fix. Silicon?

man that SVT needs some love you also have a aftermarket throttle body if you did not know

the pass airbag cover is metal under it and im sure it got bent up when the airbag went off

the diver ford logo can be popped off and if your lucky can fix it then pop it back in , if not you need a airbag

the wet floor is most likely due to your heater core leaking

Yeah we got for 1725 plus tax so I aint complaining. It is a little rough but it is coming together.

Yeah I knew about the throttle body, not sure if I want to go back stock on that though.

Do you know how hard it would be to change airbag cover?

My dad says the leak is from the evaporator core case but the dash has to come off for that and we probably will try to just silicone it before we get a new one.

A guy at Advanced told me that he knew the guy who had it before me and the guy somehow hit a stump or something and that is how it happened.

The camber was so bad on the driver side that we shortened the control arm so it wouldn't eat the tires so fast.

Well dagum i should ask for your help more often.

Will the airbag not come out of the steering wheel, how hard is it to get out?

And for the passenger what all do you take off to get to it, or can you just take the glove box out and reach it

Any 00-04 Focus airbag module will fit it but the SVT one is preferred due to the larger Ford logo on it. As for removing the airbag, refer to my picture. The airbag is held in by two bolts and three alignment pins. The green arrows indicate the bolts, after you unscrew those, you will need to lift slowly but firmly as the airbag does attach to the alignment pins(yellow arrows). You will need to be very careful you don't pull out to much because there is a wiring harness attached to the back of the airbag as indicated by the blue arrow. After that, it's fairly easy going.



First I would inspect under that cover to make sure there is an airbag under there. Usually the only time someone tampers with that plastic cover is when they are removing the airbag. As for the plastic cover? I would use a heat gun and some patience to even out all the surfaces. But if that all fails, this is how you remove that airbag module and cover.

Now for the removal of the passenger side airbag. Removing this one is a really big pain in the ass. The front and sides of this cover are held down by clips. You literally have to pry that cover open. Once you get the cover open, you will see three nuts on the backside of the cover, they will be facing downward which is seriously the pain in the ass part of this process. They are 10mm nuts if I remember correctly. Once you get those removed, you have four more bolts holding down the airbag.

By the way, just found this video on Youtube. It might be more helpful with the visuals.
