Give your local Ford dealer a shout.
They should be able to inform you of the correct amperage for the vehicle.

i would phone ford parts & give them the reg of car and they will be able to tell you the correct one for your car or get the old one & look at the label on it and it should tell you.
i would not pay for more than a hours work as it's an easy job to do and you can diy.
look here for a price for a second hand one http://www.breakeryard.com/
this is where i got mine from for £35.00 inc p&p with 3 months warranty.
most small garages will fit parts that you supply just ask them how much they want to fit it
