How To - Sunglasses Holder
Posted 18 October 2011 - 10:22 PM
Although this was fitted to a mk7 Fez, exactly the same process is followed for the Focus. Hopefully someone can sticky this into the How To for me please.
Before I start
Stuff needed: Sunglasses holder and surround (mk3 Mondeo), pencil (for marking cuttings), stanley (for cutting), flat screwdriver or something else thin for wedging unit out.
Using wedging utensils, start the process from rear of light (windscreen side)
You'll be left with this
pull the unit out.... there is a couple of plastic clips you will find. Then undo these wires
Now you got a nice hole to start working from

Measure and mark the area you want to cut. My tactic was to hold the surround up and make marking of where I want like this
Admittedly, I cut a hole too small, then went back and cut a little more to suit.
Remember, take this metal badboy out or you wont be cutting far
Now put the little metal badboy in, and also the black plastic for the rear of sunglasses holder. These will support the surround once clipped into place.
Take care when fitting, making sure you're getting all the surrounding headlining underneath the surround for a better finish
I notice that my surround isn't totally flush with the headlining, and I think my surround has been a little warped because the passenger side is tight which is disappointing, so I'll decide later on what I'm going to do about that..... either some glue or a new surround.
Thanks for reading,

You don't need to take the light apart though
And replacing the old metal surround is pointless because it will no longer be secure and may rattle
To make it fit properly at the back, cut slots half way down (from the top) into the headlining to marry up to the tabs on the black part of sunglasses holder and it will sit in tightly with no gaps
