Yes ... It seems that your 2002 Ford Focus does require a special tool in order to reposition the caliper pistons. It's not recommended to use the traditional c-clamp method as it may cause permanent damage to the caliper. This tool can be found at any local auto parts store that loans or rents tools to its customers. There may be a rental fee or holding money required in hopes that you will return the tool in good condition.
