    Seems to be a decent product but does not have any "updates", "redesigns" or improved materials that Dorman is usually known for. The stress points all look and feel identical to the factory design, including the chintzy piece of cast aluminum that is the part that always breaks in these. This thing is a major pain to install, with no fault to Dorman but an incredibly poor design on Ford''s part, which is the main cause for these things to break in the first place. If you''re not handy with mechanical work I highly recommend having someone experienced install this for you.

    Not a fun install but it goes inside the door and nothing in there is fun on any car I''ve ever worked on. This is almost identical to the Ford part but it has a small reinforcing tab cast into the part that usually breaks. Buy a set of door clips while you are at it in case you break one like I did.

    You''ll probably only need one or two but they are cheap.

    I didn''t need to remove everything, including the door''s motor and window guides. I just needed to unclamp the bottom left window clamp and then slowly move everything out of the way to gradually move and twist the old one through the top left hole on the inside of the door, while disconnecting the two places where it connects to the other door parts. It was tricky, but probably saved me a lot of time otherwise. The place where my old one broke was a piece of metal, not plastic, so it wouldn''t have broken if that metal was hardened steel.

    Door handle on my sons 2003 focus stopped working. This is a fairly priced replacement for Ford’s bad design. Several youtube videos on how to remove door panel and door handle to get you started. Replacing is pretty straigtforward once you see inside the door. My only difficulty was the junk white plastic clip that holds the door handle rod to the door latch. Of course it was broke. A replacement clip will cost anywhere from $15-30 dollars. What a ripoff for a cheal plastic part. My workaround was to weld a washer onto the inside of the latch rod and use the broken piece to secure the opposite side on the latch.
    The new latch works just fine.

    Bought because the little lever connected to the external handle broke on my 2007 Ford Focus. Tried replacing myself and ended up being a confusing mess. Ended up having a body shop finish my repair. I broke a part on another assembly (not this one) in the process, locking myself out of my car, paying a towing company to unlock my car, but that is my fault. I have a working door again and that is all I care about.

    If you do this yourself, know it is not easy, but this may be the part for you.

    This repair wasn’t necessarily difficult but required some new inexpensive tools (torx) and patience. The project took me about 7-8 hours spread over a few days. Actually it was a most rewarding part of my project to restore a 2007 Ford Focus. There is a small arm that breaks off in the Focus (red circle) that prevents entry from driver’s side. The part is not that expensive – but labor at the dealers is way in the clouds. The other picture shows the part installed (best angle I could get). The door works perfect now!

    Let me start off with this, I''ve never had any problem with any Dorman product before, they''ve always been good, but not this time unfortunately, for it to be oe direct fit and "stronger" than original, it sure didn''t seem to want to fit into the plastic piece on the end of the actuator rod, and since I really need a door handle and didn''t have time to wait for another one that won''t fit, I tried carefully modifying it to fit, it''s made out of the same cheap pot metal as the original, and it broke, for 30 bucks I''m very disappointed, especially being a Dorman product, the worst part is I know they won''t replace it because I modified it, even though it never fit in the first place and it IS the right part

    Did you pull the door handle on your Focus and hear a SNAP and now the handle does not A) open the door, or B) return to the "closed position"? If so, join the club. This happened to my father in-law''s 2006 Focus SES and this replacement part was exactly what was needed to resolve the well-documented issue. This repair is something even the most novice of mechanics can perform with a bit of patience and research-- like I said, it''s well documented!
