Ford Focus Problemsrear door latch broken
The rear driverside door would not stay shut. We tried everything but the latch would not latch. We ended up taking it to our mechanic and he had to replace the entire latch mechanism. This should never happen considering that this door is hardly used and the car only has 37000 miles on it.
As the motor mounts break down or wear, additional noise and vibration may be noted when the vehicle is at idle. Replacement of the motor mounts would be required to remedy this condition.

If I replace the hub do I replace the bearings?
