Apologies if this has been covered elsewhere on here!
 
Have you seen that some people have fitted the 2006-2010 C-Max heater climate control switch knobs to their focus's as shown here

Does anyone know if these would just be a straight swap on my model focus (05 reg titanium saloon)? From what i can work out it looks like a straight swap. Has anyone else done this on their focus? was it fairly straight forward??

Yes many people have fitted them and they are a straight swap

I've done it on a 09 plate (facelift).... I don't know if you've seen the guide....

The stock's are tightly on, but I just went for it - caused slight damage to the rubber on the stock controls, but I'm not bothered because its a great upgrade!

 

Also, according to this picture....

I think you're right.  It's like a calling card - 'Oh he posts on fordownersclub' haha.

 

It's just an quick easy mod that makes a massive difference in my opinion :)

I have them but as I fitted blue lit controls I need to swap them over again.
Nothing like doing the same mod twice. :)

I'm more envious of that number 6 on the gear knob :P  i'd love a six speed! The wrap look is quite sexy too mind :wub:

APJ
They do look fit

My main criteria when I was searching for a 2nd hand Focus was that it had a 6th gear. Can really push your fuel consumption with a 6th:-)
APJ
Have fitted the new control knobs...really easy, didnt even need pliers, just used my hands. Will post a before and after

Looks good mate! Welcome to the club lol!
Bobby93
Looks good, just ordered me a set

Is there anything similar for the headlight switch knob? I've search in Google and struggling to find anything
Stoney871
I've never found one.
The design of the headlight switch doesn't lend itself to an easy swap.
I believe someone on another club once cut one up and modified it but really can't recall where or when.

It's a shame, I might have a go, so I don't mess mine up I will buy a spare and see if I can make it look more smart, hopefully to match something similar to the A/C knobs
