HOW HARD

De­pends en­tirely on the age of your Fo­cus and whether or not it’s been apart re­cently. Our 2012 ST (with Ford FSH) looked like its rear brakes were un­touched, and thus re­quired re­pairs – in­clud­ing new pad springs, brake lines and the drilling out of seized com­po­nents. On a newer car the job should be a breeze

HOW LONG

The­o­ret­i­cally a cou­ple of hours, but don’t un­der­es­ti­mate what should be a straight­for­ward job. Al­low your­self a full day or af­ter­noon, just in case some­thing goes wrong (which ours did, on al­most every­thing)
