Yes, at least for the AC belt. It is a "stretch belt" meaning no tensioner pulley so the standard way to remove it is to just cut it off and of course you need a special tool to put the new one on to avoid belt damage (and frustration).

this is going to be a fun project, i would budget a day to do this
  1. Remove AC compressor belt (needs special tool to ‘walk’ the belt off, or cut it and get a new one)
  2. Remove serpentine belt
  3. Remove crankshaft pulley
  4. Remove timing cover
  5. Install timing cover
  6. Install crankshaft pulley
  7. Install serpentine belt
  8. Install AC compressor belt (needs special tool to ‘walk’ the belt on the pulley)
  9. Success!!
more than likely you wont need to remove the valve cover

I've put together a pdf with copy pasted e-manual pages, I've already noticed a couple things wrong, so take it for what it is, some things may be different for you vehicle, do some research on the specific tools you may need and understand what you are doing before you start, dont cut corners, take your time, and above all else BE SAFE

note that if done incorrectly (being you get done and the engine is not in time) you will be siting with a very expensive and very heavy paper weight when you turn the key

the forum wouldn't let me upload it here so enjoy a google drive link

Thanks for all the info, I'm leaning towards maybe having a professional look at it. Not looking forward to muffing something up and being left with a nice expensive paperweight... especially since I pay the car off this year.

To build on what a couple others have said. This is a VERY TRICKY repair. Get the manual, and don't take any pulley's off till you know what you are doing.

You are going to need some special tools from ford. Get those on order too (I think there are 3).

The joys of modern engineering repairs. Sorry to hear of the mount sheering off. I had my clutch slave cylinder go at 80k miles. Cost me $1200 in repairs.

Damn. Did that include a new clutch and flywheel?

Wow, that was a 40 dollar part and a pretty easy repair when mine went out on my Acura.

last i recall the focus has always had the slave inside the trans behind the clutch, so to get to it you have to dismount the trans to even think about looking at it

its a cheap part, the labor is what hurts with this one

To the OP= Don't drive this car.....Your engine is likely to fall & cause additional damage.
