Full Version: Mk2 Rear Courtesy Light

Hello!

I have a mk2 Focus on a '56 plate. One thing that annoys me is that I don't have a rear courtesy light. I have sourced one from eBay which is a proper one from a mk1 Focus Ghia, and I have the correct retaining ring, but I was wondering if it is indeed possible to fit it to my car. I.E is there space at the rear of the headlining to fit it?

Thanks in advance.

Dave.

i find its easier than ripping headlining off and all the associated trim you can do it all without removing headlining uyoull just need to give the car a good hoover though a wire coat hanger with the wire taped to the end and pushed through from the front courtesy light to youre precut hole is the easiest way and with a shrp stanley you can cut the lining first without removing it

I miss not having a rear courtesy light.

If you manage to get this done, I'd really appreciate if you could post up a guide on how to do this mate.

its quite easy the wiring is simply taken from the front so youre simply taking a feed from the first wire to the same point on the rear light and you do this with the 3 i had a how to somewhere ill see if i can find it
