Exclamation Ford Focus 2011 Electronic Steering

Hi Everyone,

My electronic steering rack in my 2011 Ford Focus Ambient 1.6L (manual and petrol) Hatchback has died. My VIN is: WF0KXXGCBKBT67889 and my wheel is 16". I have contacted the ford dealer they have said that I need OEM: HV6Z3504EW for the replacement ($2900). They also warned to not get other parts as it wont work in the car. I have read on similiar forums that this is commonly said and that other racks can be used if the tyre size is the same. I was just wondering if anyone has had experience with this

Default Re: Ford Focus 2011 Electronic Steering

If you know someone that works at Ford you can get them at employee prices for about $2k. I got quoted about $800 labour to install. Depends on your mileage if it's worth it or not. Apparently the new racks will eventually have the same issue so some people take a gamble on a cheap second hand rack from the wreckers.
