Inleiding

We will demonstrate how to remove the radio suppression capacitor in a 2007 Ford Focus and replace it with a new capacitor by using a ratcheting screwdriver and 8mm nut driver attachment.

The radio suppression capacitor acts as a noise barrier as it dampens engine noise in the cabin of the vehicle. However, sometimes the wire in the capacitor corrodes and fails to dampen noise from the engine. Additionally, the wire may come loose, blowing fuses or even the battery.
