This was for an 07 Focus. In my case the cable broke because of another issue. What happened in my case was it was tough switching from defrost to vents and floor. Because of that being sticky the cable eventually broke. I replaced a few cables then decided to fix the root cause of my problem which was the rubber gasket on the door inside the HVAC box that switches from vent to floor etc. The rubber was deteriorating and became sticky so when it was closed in either position it stuck there. To fix this I needed to completely disassemble the dash to get to it. Never having done this before (however I've worked on a lot of cars and done many other types of repairs, just never completely removed a dash) the whole project took me about 6 hours but I could probably do it much quicker now, maybe 2-4 hours or so. If you are mechanically inclined and like working on cars then there you go. If not and your controls are really sticky, then you can replace this but expect it to break again. Another option would be where this cable hooks up to the HVAC box under the dash by the floor- it's like a big plastic component that rotates to move the doors, you can just reach down there (Not really from a seated position, you'll need to squat next to the car) and rotate it by hand, then you can leave it in that position. A little less convenient, but it could get you by.

So in short, if you're replacing this cable - it's like when you have to replace a fuse - there's likely a bigger problem that's causing it to break that will need to be fixed.

The car I bought this for and fixed is still working well.

It took me about 5 mins to snap in instead of the old one. The problem is with the two vent doors. I took off the plastic cam control and worked the doors manually, one was jammed pretty hard. I tried to lube them with white grease, it didn't work very well. Maybe with q tips. Somehow, the doors go dry of lube then seize up, and takes too much force at the knob, so this cable breaks inside.
Replacement is easy, you take off about five 8mm screws to remove the panel above drivers foot pedals, that exposes the vent manifold. The dash cover unsnaps with a plastic pry tool, to avoid scratching. One Phillips screw retains the knob end, three snaps retain the vent door end, then it pulls out easily. Some people think the radio has to come out, but that's not necessary. There are another five 8mm screws retaining the cam control, that needs to come off to get at the two vent doors. Maybe some spray lithium?
Otherwise the Ford Focus is a nice car, kind of ruined if the ventilation doesn't work.

The original lasted 8 years hopefully this one lasts that long haha but like some of the other people I might be having the same issues with the blend door binding up but as long as it holds up till summer when I can service it and not have to freeze my butt I'll be happy

This is the fix you need to get your directional switch back in order for your heat and ac in a Ford Focus. I recommend buy this and YouTube how to fix it. It's not hard, doesn't take too long and is cheaper than $400 for someone else to do it.

For those that suffer with the Ford Focuses of the 2000's and their sticky air vent doors - your control cable will eventually break and this part will get you back in action. It takes about an hour to replace and lube everything back up, saves a trip to the shop.

Fixes the problem but the cause remains. This slipped right in to replace my broken knob. The wire appears to be the same thickness as the OEM equipment, and will likely break in the future just like the OEM. Use a bunch of silicon lube and hope for the best!

I purchased this product and had it installed within minutes. Really easy install, worked great for about 24 hours. On the second day of owning it I turned the dial as I normally would and the twisting mechanism snapped right off from the base. Have to look somewhere else now for a better one.
