No problem,
The parts are of no use to me so you don't owe me mate.
I kept them in the attic encase they would be of use to someone and my assumption was correct lol

Not yet mate, sorry. Had planned to get at it yesterday as I'd a free week from football, but pumpkin carving and Halloween decorations took over! Merseyside derby and the miserable weather out will prevent me from getting at it today, but I've booked from Weds off this week for Jr's mid-term so bound to get an hour or two at it on Thurs or Fri. As long as I have my car back by then...goin to my mechanic on Monday for a few days to have a sticking turbo dismantled and cleaned, fingers crossed that'll sort it!

I know this topic is over a month old now. But i was installing a second light in my 05 focus boot today and noticed a thick red wire, with red plug on the end (right next to an ground point) on the left (uk passenger side). Does anyone else have this? and is it likely to be for a 12v socket? I was going to take a pic but had put everything back together before i remembered.

To be honest,
Its hard to say without a picture mate, but i understand you have it all back togeather now,
Its hard to say for sure if the cable on the rear passenger side is for a 12V socket because ford also run loom for reverse camera and sensors on some models.
But if it has a spade socket connection similar to the one pictured in the guide, then go for it worth a try
But 99% of the time the 12v loom is fitted on the drivers side of the boot behind the panel.

after some more investigation with a multimeter and pulling fuses it seems that the red wire is for the towing module. its on its own 20A fuse and is a permanent live 12v supply. Im sure i will be able to make use of that :)

No worries. Just been flicking through my manual and noticed that I have a fuse in my fusebox for what the manual says is a "Luggage compartment power point". Any idea what that might be or if it is an unconnected fuse (no wire on the drivers side that others have)

The 12v power supply on the drivers side of the boot would be classed as a luggage compartment power point.
But since your model doesnt have the loom fitted then it is likely the fuse port is empty on the board too.

ive checked and the fuse is there, 15A in the slot and the contacts are there too, rather than being empty like the rest. Maybe my car is just odd.
