This is a guide to fitting a Light Switch unit with a dimmer dial to Ford Focus without one as factory fitted.
The part used came from a C-Max MK5 [color=#D3D3D3][size=4][b]PART NUMBER-4M5T13A024BA [/b][/size][/color]
Undo the T25 Torx and pull off the panel to the door side of the drivers area.
Unplug the ODB port from the panel so as to avoid damaging the wiring (needs 3 hands really to push 2 metal clips and pull the Port clear)
I found it was easier to reach the locating clips of the light unit from the gap at the side and had to push, pull and wiggle the unit to get it out, finally pulled forward and down to unlocate the top one first then got the bottom one clear.
Unplug the cable loom from the old unit.
Check the units are the same size and the plugs are the same.
Attach the new unit and test the lights, dimmer and levellers.
Push the new unit into place (takes a bit of a push).
Relocate the ODB port into the trim and refit to dash.
Replace the torx and Roberts's your Mothers Brother.

I decided to follow the guide, so i bought a part a 2006 Mondeo. That part also has auto headlights.
The part will not fit my car because it is a bit larger, however all the switches and the dim was working fine.
I am going to get another part that will fit my car, but i was wondering if i should go again for the auto headlights. Has anyone tried to install those? I assume i'm gonna need the auto rear view mirror with the sensors. I might go for auto wipers too.
Is it as easy as it sounds or am i missing something?

Stoney, Don't suppose you know the FINIS number do you??

Afraid not, the part was, as stated, from a C-Max, part number [b]4M5T13A024BA.[/b]
Manual light switch the same as i used-
If you have auto-headlights then these are available on the Bay of e-
There's loads of Mondeo ones listed but as found before, the unit is wider than a Focus one and definitely won't fit.
