Have just bought a 2007 Focus and noticed there is no carpet cover over the fuse box behind the glovebox in front passenger footwell. Does anybody know if there should be as I can see loads of wires exposed. Looks like there should be carpet or a carboard cover over it ??

Mine is like yours mate, so I would say that it is supposed to be how it is. But maybe others could comment?

Both are normal. Fusebox isnt covered by carpet. The back of the glovebox covers it when its closed. The lights on the dash and radio stay on for between 10 and 20 minutes after locking the car. Why I have no idea but it is normal.

It would seem the carpet is missing from mine, thought it looked a bit odd.
No doubt Ford will charge a ridiculous amount for this.

the clocks stay active for 18 minutes after turning off for all the systems on board to go into power down.

the carpet on the fuse box some have it some (later models) either have like a plastic grille or nothing. it is all down to saving a penny or two on each car.
