hmmm just been out there for 40 odd minutes, trying to find the mysterious "7" torx screws for the glovebox, and in the meantime somehow blowing my interior lights fuse twice!

 

I found the two on either side of the catch, one at each side at the top... but I cant find the last three screws to take the glovebox fully out... anyone any ideas?

If the glove box is like the Focus one the other screws are under little lugs at the bottom edge of the box, flip them down to expose the screws.

hmmm I dont really want to splice into any more of the "original" electrics of the Focus, I am currently more swayed to the idea of awaiting my illuminated ignition barrel, then splicing into it!

 

and I wonder if my gem is being a pain in the backside, as the dash display (trip computer / gear window) stays lit up like a christmas tree 24/7

 

sorry i meant to splice into the ingition ring loom, maybe the gem does limit and monitor the current flow whilst the display is on, ive no idea how long it stays on,

I cant seem to find that particular flap you refer to, if you get a chance Clive and are able to snap a shot that would be appreciated!

Done some searching, looks like there's a screw under the side as well, possibly under your dash (bracket to right of picture)

Yeah, I got more use out of asking the glovebox where it was hiding them :P

 

Unfortunately a grainy photo with the words "remove the 7 retaining screws as shown in the picture" with no clear markings on the picture for where the other 3 screws are!

Typical Haynes.

Why don't they do an online version with easy to follow video or higher quality photos?

Easier to update too when someone points out they got something wrong yet again.

Agreed Clive, it would be useful, if you used a code from your Haynes to access the online versions so people dont just browse it and they lose out!

 

Vince, I managed to pull that loose trim off but didnt realise that the screw there was for the glovebox! perhaps its worth a dig through once I have got my current problems fixed!

 

I really need to get ETIS up and running,..

I have the bulb holders too. I wanted to take a feed off the front footwells to fit rears and fit an LED strip in the front wells but I'm not that keen on splicing into wires. So found these on Ebay by chance. They are plastic bases for led bulbs. So I can wire up the led strips to these and just plug them in and remove them when I need to. Minimum order was 10 but they sent 20. Bonus!. So if anyone has a use for them let me know and I will pass on the spares.

SWMBO has been complaining recently about the boot being dark since I 'stole' the bulb for the drivers side footwell so I had a quick look on Amazon. 

 

Ordered these http://www.amazon.co...0?ie=UTF8&psc=1 on Tuesday and they turned up today.  :)

 

89p INCLUDING P+P for 10 bulbs!!! 

 

So now the passenger side footwell lights up as well as the drivers and the boot is lit again AND I've still got 8 spare bulbs  :)
