#614 of 618 2002 Focus ZX5 power window failures
Oct 31, 2008 (10:43 am)
I have a 2002 Ford Focus ZX5 which I purchased after my 2000 Focus SLE was totalled. I loved the first one, but am having problems with the window regulators on this ZX5. I've replaced all of the regulators once, and two of them twice! One of the switches (the button you press to make the window go up and down) was also replaced this last time. Overall I love the focus but am seriously annoyed with these window issues. My mechanic told me that Ford decided to "update" the regulators, which I assume is because they had so many complaints about the old ones failing. I'm wondering how many people out there have had this problem?

I have the same issue! My two rear windows just make this grinding noise when i press the button, then the window just dropped into the door, and the guy at the ford dealership wanted to charge me $600 to fix it! His terrible attitude didnt help sway me into paying it either

Power windows are usually a pretty expensive fix. Motors and regulators aren't cheap and I bet you're looking at 2+ hours of labor as well. A number like $600 for repairing two windows (without knowing exactly what the problem is) is not all that surprising

My '03 ZTW with not quite 50k has had zero window issues. Lucky so far, I guess.

Well, Ford has brought back the "ZX5" for 2012. Has anyone moved from an older ZX5 to new hatch?
