2002 Ford Focus Recalls
Ford has recalled certain 2000-2005 Focus vehicles in states that use road salt because corrosion may build up at the pawl pivot area of the rear door latch. This may prevent the door from latching properly. If this occurs, an occupant could fall out of the vehicle. Dealers will install a lower rocker seal to the door to prevent corrosive material from entering and will evaluate the rear door latches, which will either be lubricated or replaced.
Ford has recalled 2002 Focus vehicles with manual transmissions because the throttle body may stick during wide open acceleration. The speed control cable may hang up on the throttle body bracket and not allow the throttle to release. This may make it difficult to stop the vehicle. Dealers will replace the throttle body assembly.
