The side that has the broken clip you would not know as it fits just as it did before.

Just been out and taken my car apart to check this, I can confirm the existence of clips #5 & #6 at the very front, these are plastic rather than the other 4 metal clips I had originally highlighted.
Funnily (or not) enough I actually broke my passenger side one about a year ago but completely forgot about it until I read your comments, it really doesn't affect anything and you never notice it once put back together.

That makes my hash not so bad then.Did you get yours off without breaking the other side or are both now broken.I agree that it goes back without ok and might not matter if both break.

The other side is fine. Once you've unclipped the back (as shown the the vid) try grabbing the underneath from both sides and pulling directly upwards.

All done, took my dad 10 minutes from start to finish. Lots of tugging at panels but he said it was pretty easy to do (and commented on how well built it is!).

I think a few people have done it but where the wire is tucked in, it's behind a plastic clip which got snapped as it's very snuggly fitted (Although once it's plugged in that clip becomes redundant)

Here's the results :) Shows up on the screen as 'ESP Off' for about 10 seconds before it clears

Yeah I went back and had another go at mine and found the plug tucked away hard to get to.The trick with the gaiter is when you have removed the 4 metal side clips you pull upwards and it releases the last two plastic ones.If you break one of the plastic ones like I did don't worry because it goes back just the same with no miss alignment or gaps.I would have done pics but I did it straight after work and it was going dark fast.Just need to get to ford parts now for the switch.I in a much better mood than yesterday. :rolleyes:

It makes a change for a manufacturer to make it easy to retro fit an item like this!!

Well, easy once all the dash bits are off! Like said by kev, why didn't they just put the blummin thing there to begin with! lol

We're quite lucky though, someone said that with the ford focus the cable isn't 'live' so its not just a case of 'plug n play'
