Alignment ? (rear toe)

so i finally got my camber bolts installed and took my car to be aligned. So after a while of playing around with it they told they weren't able to adjust the rear toe. Wasn't charged since the alignment was not completed. Is there something else i need or should know in order to adjust the toe and camber in the rear?

Take the car somewhere else. Rear toe is easily adjustable and any competent alignment tech can do it. Technically its the only setting that can be done on a Focus (and lots of other cars). While the camber bolts might change the initial toe settings, they don't interfere with physical toe adjustments.

^^^What he said. My alignment shop guys knew when they saw me drive up that toe is the only factory adjustment, front and rear on the Focus. They didn't need to play around and figure it out. Find a shop that is a repair place first, tire dealer second.

unless u bent somethin in the rear u should be able to adjust rear toe. i am an alignment tech at my shop and ive aligned many foc. and my own a bunch of times and its fully adjustable! the only reason i can think of them not being able to is the bolts might have been frozen but thats nothin a torch cant fix! just seem odd to me
