  • Ford Model: 2007 Ford Focus XL Estate 1.8TDCi

Posted 09 February 2011 - 10:53 AM

i personnally use www.crazyleds.co.uk and they are very very cheap. pointed tip will work, you will also need a pair of tweezers as they are minute, if you feel you cant do it i offer my services. yeah i was in the same shoes as you are, but i left it black to go with the interior.



Thanks for the offer John, I just might take you up on that. ref the white dials I have had an email back off lockwoods, this is what they said ;

The glow plug warning light will be inactive on petrol engine models but the
symbol was on the original so we kept it on ours.
If the dials look the same as yours (apart from the colour) then these will
be fine.
Hope this helps.
Kind Regards
Clive
Lockwood Int.


so It looks like they are fine, I might just purchase a set, catch you later...

i know with some cars, the wires and connectors are already there, take the glove box out and they should be there...all you need is the bulb. this is true for some mk1's, mk1.5's and few mk2's. (iirc been a while)

but anyways i put a wire from the roof light, ran it in the roof lining down the passenger a piller into the glove box area (added a switch) and down the center console and from that i attached 2 fronts LED strips to the glove box area and 2 rear LED switch from the centre console.

hope that helps...pretty simple really

Were you looking to sell?
If so what colour fascia does it have and have you the code?
If it's a good price i may go for it.
Blue lights look better than the standard green or red.
I have a standard 6000 at the moment but tried to get a cheap 6006cdc but it was only good for spares.
Changed the fascias over from dark grey to silver and swapped over the eject/load buttons for the standard single eject button.

What map light did you use in the end? I've got a Mk2 Zetec and I want to fit one, but can't find what car I need to source one from.

This is the same one that i have fitted,
The standard map bulbs tend to be a dingy yellow colour so i recommend coloured bulbs.
If you change the bulbs when the unit is fitted you will blow the fuse so i recommend removing the fuse or the unit connections if doing so.
