The Ultimate Guide to Replacing Your 2017 Ford Focus Battery

Changing the battery in your vehicle doesn't have to be a daunting task. In fact, with the right tools and a bit of know-how, it can be quite straightforward. This guide will walk you through the process of replacing the battery in a 2017 Ford Focus, ensuring your car is ready to go whenever you are.

Essential Tools for the Job

Before we dive in, let's talk about what you'll need:

- A 10mm wrench, preferably 1/4 size, and a ratchet wrench.

Choosing the Right Battery

For the 2017 Ford Focus, the recommended battery is the Group 96R Battery.

Step-by-Step Battery Replacement

1. Locating the Battery: In the 2017 Ford Focus, you'll find the battery on the driver's side, close to the vehicle's firewall. Remove the battery placement top cover.

2. Disconnecting the Negative Cable: Start by using your 10mm wrench to disconnect the negative cable. Once loosened, move the cable aside to avoid any accidental contact. (Disconnect the negative from the firewall if you're having issues.)

3. Disconnecting the Positive Cable: Similarly, use your 10mm wrench to disconnect the positive cable.

4. Removing the Battery Hold Down: Next, remove the battery hold down clamp with your 10mm wrench. This will free the battery for removal.

5. Prepping for Removal: Lift the front case of the battery slightly and adjust the side walls. Press the walls inwards while pulling up to unclip from place. This creates enough room to remove the battery without the need to take out the air box.

6. Battery Removal: Gently pull the battery towards you, lifting it at a 45- to 90-degree angle up to lift it out.

7. Cleaning the Terminals: Now's a great time to inspect and clean your battery terminals. A wire brush and corrosion spray work well, but baking soda and warm water are also effective.

8. Installing the New Battery: Place your new battery in the same orientation as the old one. Secure it with the hold down bracket, reconnect the positive and negative terminals (in that order), and ensure the casing is properly closed.

9. Testing Your Work: Start your vehicle to ensure everything is working correctly. A healthy charging system will show a voltage reading between 13.5 and 14.5 volts.

10. Final Checks: Give your work area a final inspection, close the hood, and take pride in knowing your Ford Focus is ready for the road once more.
