Electrical problem
2003 Ford Focus 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual 97,000 miles

Need to replace the alternator; 2003 Focus with ztec engine. It is wedged in there between the engine and firewall. This looks to be a pain; am I right? Is there a trick/shortcut to it? I'm half afraid to go buy a manual. Disassemble the right wheelwell assembly, pull the transmission, etc. I'm doing this tomorrow and need the car the next day. Thanks

Got it done with no help from this forum. The trick is to take out the 3 big bolts that hold the engine mount to the right wheelwell, jack up the engine a little and push it forward enough to get the alternator out. I learned a trick all by myself !
