I have been looking for where the bulb should go. I can find where it is meant to be; it is a hard plastic bracket on the frame but there is no bulb holder, nor wires. Do I need to look for the wires somewhere else?


That's a bummer

Anyway I've been out an taken a picture for you

Pictures say a thousand words - it is hard to describe, but you just bung the bulb in that holder if you have it. You dont need to be looking for wires etc

I have also looked for theses elusive foot well lamp holders in my 2009 Zetec 1.6 TDI and, alas just an empty bracket with no holder or wires.

Obviously Ford left them out as a weight saving so they could scrape under the £30 a year road fund tax.

Would be useful to know the colours of the wires feeding the lamp holder. If one of you lucky ones with a pre-wired holder could take a look it would be worth poking around to see if there are a couple of spares tucked away in an adjacent loom.

simple enough to wire in LED strips into the courtesy light so they come on when you flick a switch or when the doors open. if anyone wants details i can post up if wanted?

Seen some nice Amber leds on Ebay, would also be good to get extra holders and transfer under the front seats to light up the back foot wells . a cunning plan me thinks.

Just checked my 2009 (59) Focus Zetec S 1.8 petrol and they are there. Can you get these bulbs in different colours or not?

Could always tint the bulb glass if not... I think they are standard boring yellow though.

the bulbs can come in all different colours. personally i would use these:

at the moment i use, as i dont have the wiring:

they are wired, by myself, to the courtesy light, so they come on when the door is opened or when the switch is flicked.

i did this myself, there is a metal pole that you can stick them too...but you may need a little superglue to stop them peeling off.

i ran the cable for power down the central console.

Iíve got a 2010 focus and Iíve been in the foot wells for over an hour put new working 5W5 bulbs in and nothing happens when I open the doors or switch on the lights, even checked the manual and fuse box for a empty slot but all the empty slots are clear at the back they donít have any terminals in the unused slots, the bulb sockets have cables leading from them and everything a donít understand why they wonít work for me :(

The holders were present and wired (just had to pop in bulbs) on both my 55 plate and my missus 59 plate Focus.

Bulbs obviously come in orange (they are the same for most side repeaters).
