Don't remove anything.
Just a measurement across the inner radius is enough.

The inner circle across looks to be 350mm- very hard to measure!

The measurement I need is this dimension-

 

 

The replacement dials for a Focus measure 30mm.

Just measured a set i had laying around in the shed.

Circle diameter is 34 mm.

Also see the pictures for the rest of the looks "behind the scenes" so to speak ;)

I would also like a set in my Fusion (same controls as a Fiesta) but the middle knob won't fit without some homemade modifications. Is a 6 mm steel pin with 1 flat side so completely different from the outer 2.

The outer 2 are, as far as i can see from the pictures, the same as a Focus although i think they the ones in the Focus are somehow different in the way they are held on.

That's what i thought ;) but i thought pictures speak louder than words :rolleyes:

 

I tried to pull one knob out, didn't work. I think the only way to get them out is to stick 3 thin knifes or something like that between the 3 white fingers, spreading them gently, and then pull it out.

And the only way to get the replacement knobs to stick would be to make a groove in the new knob with a Dremel or to grind the 3 white fingers a bit so they still grip a little. The first option would be the best i think.

And the middle knob would be somewhat more difficult, sawing off the back of the original knob, grinding it down so it will fit into the new knob and glue it with epoxy or something like that. The only thing to look out for is to place it correctly so the knob is placed correctly.

 

Shame they don't have ready made for Fiesta/Fusion.
