Hey,

Just picked up my 2010 1.6 Zetec S and I found that i have the bracket but do not have the connections. I only had a quick glance, am going to have a better loot tomorrow and see if i can find anything that may have been hidden.

Hope its there, i want to fit some blue LEDs.

My 10 (60 plate) Zetec S has the little brackets, but no bulb socket or wiring. They must have taken these out in the 2010 models.

Nice find.

Just found the holders, and wires, on my Focus 1.8TDCi Sport. Suprising really considering the lack of extras on a Sport model yet I have footwell lights, minus the bulbs obviously. Now just to find a nice coloured bulb, amber is so boring.

EDIT: I just was browsing through other forums and I read that some people who have a 6000CD stereo, an aux button but no aux input do actually have the wires for it. Like the footwells with no bulbs all that is missing is for the wire to be connected up in the glove box and the socket.

Just to confirm that my 2005 LX 1.4 Petrol has the same plastic holders wired up and working. Plugged two bulbs I had rattling about, and they work.

Just one comment: the plastic holder actually can "twist and turn" and get out of the metal bracket, so if this happens, just make sure you don't hold the bulb and to the twisting and turning cause you'll end up in a bad place :)

A little heads up. An ideal bulb is an Ultra Blue 1. I got some from Halfords at 4 (a bit pricey) but it finishes the car. Although its Ultra Blue it has a slight green tinge to it so it goes with the rest of the green dash, looks the bees knees.

Hi was wondering if anyone knew if this red plug behind the glove is to plug the wiring for front footwell lights..... 06 zetec climate pack
Have not got the wiring present so took off glove box and found this plug (red) has 6 pins...?
Any ideas from people with the footwell lights most appreciated, colour of footwell wires etc....

You can get the holders from Fleabay.

You could just run 2 wires from the central curtesy light and down front pillar to the bulb holders , simple job to solder them up and save you an hours labour charge from ford.I would use LEDS to reduces power rating and not bulbs.

I did this with my rear center bulb by adding small Red LEDS near the rear quarter light to light up rear seats with a red glow , looks nice in the dark :P . Also added Red Leds to the back of the center consol which lights up the rear foot wells.

No unfortunately the wiring isnt always there, you can buy a kit from Ford for a reasonable price (yes Ford and Reasonable Price where in the same sentence!, no I havent gone mad entirely!) you can then wire it up, as from memory you just slot these plugs into other little slots on the rear of the radio cabling, and once affixed that will give you the ability to listen to AUX.

I saw somewhere on the web many moons ago a "how to" on this, think they did it on a 6000CD on a Focus C-Max - never the less detailed pictures and description, unforutnately I havent been able to find it since...

Popped down to local motor factors at lunchtime, bought 2 bulbs for 67p, popped in, working!

Thanks! (2008 1.6 Zetec 100)
