Cheers Wickwick, I've just put some of these in my mk2.5 sidelights and they are great. Going to order another pair for the footwells too. :)

Lost the little rubber gromet that covers the holder though, so does anyone know where I can get a from it from cord bud - LED's look great

Have just received 2 sets of error free leds as per link in previous post.

http://www.ebay.co.u...ME:L:OU:GB:1123

I was planning on fitting one set to the number plate and one set to replace the halogen sidelights. I like the white look of the led side lights shown on the picture of the white focus earlier on the post.

Just wanted to check that these are road legal and wouldnt effect MOT etc....??

Still waiting for my osram nightbreaker H7 headlights to come in the post before I start removing light fitting and replacing.

fitted led side lights and they look good though the head lights are a bit of a let down - osram night breaker plus are a little bit whiter than the phillips I had in previously but still not as Xenon looking as I would have liked.

also if you change the number plate bublbs then be careful with the number plate housings though as are a bit awkward to remove. Ford obviously didnt upgrade the changing bulb instructions in the manual from the mk2 to the mk2.5 because the diagram shows to remove screws in the lens covers but on the mk2.5 there are no screws the lens cover is just held in by a clip.

greggp, you do realise that its that lack of change in the manual that saved Ford enough money to host their christmas party? lol, either it was clearly too complicated a process to delete the existing paragraph and come up with "insert a thin blade screwdriver into point X and gently pivot to disengage the clip". Clearly it was going to take them too long and too many hours of wages, so they scrapped the idea and paid for their christmas meal or similar!

It is a bit lazy though!

So Osram Nightbreaker plus are the best headlamp replacements, are there 4 bulbs to replace?

Is there a separate bulb for high and dipped beams?

thanks

Hi Al,

the main beam and dipped headlights are one unit, but have two filaments, so are both the same and seperate at the same time.

Not true in a mk2.5 at least. They are 2 seperate bulbs.

EDIT: H7 for the dipped, and H1 for main beam. :)

I Stand corrected! I remember the MK2.0 was a single bulb...!

Thanks, just looked in the manual and it does say there are two lamps.

So should I replace both with the Osram Nightbreaker Plus type, or is there a better lamp.

thanks

Fairly easy to fit, pain you have to remove the light unit itself to do it though!

Hi, just want to confirm for the MK2.5 FL front side lights, believe they are the T10 W5W, do they need to be canbus error free ones or just the standard ones will do ? Which of the lights actually requires the canbus free LED bulbs ? Planning to change the fog lights as well.

if you have Canbus (i.e. "oops, your bulbs out - replace it - signed your ford focus") then you need error free, as the small usage of the bulb shows as a suspected blown bulb on the computer... if you (like I) have not got canbus, then it doesnt matter :D
