I replaced mine in a 2001 ZX3. If I remember right, that is the one Focus
model you have to get the window regulator from the dealer. I do not
believe you have an option on the motor. The whole assembly with the motor
comes as a unit for around $120. It may be more now.
I wasn't happy about the price either but you have no other choice. My
problem was the plastic clips to the window broke. 50 cent pieces of
plastic but they are part of the unit as well.
Also, have the service guy print you a copy of the installation
instructions. They were a big help for me.
I had a windowlift system replaced on a GMC van a few years ago, and I
believe it cost $450 for the limit switch and motor assembly. No
matter the car this is an expensive repair.
I replaced the window regulator on my wife's 98 Grand Prix drivers door for
$63.95, no tax and free shipping.

I recently replaced the regulator in the right rear door of my 2002
Ford Focus 2002 US model. The complete assembly with integrated motor
was less than $100 US.
Getting the old regulator out was a bitch. The regulator has a heavy U
shaped nylon block to attach the glass to the regulator. There wasn't
enough room in the door cavity to pry both sides of the nylon block
away for the glass at the same time. I ended up cutting up the block
with a hack saw to free it. There has to be a better way. I wonder how
the pros do it.
