If the lights don't appear to light up, it might be worth sticking a couple of bulbs in the bulb holders anyway to see if they come to life... Plenty on here have simply fitted the bulbs into empty holders and they have worked a treat... ;)

Did your Zetec have these Andrew? Anyone else with a Zetec/Zetec S MK3 know whether there are footwell lights?

Thanks,

Mike

Nope, my Zetec certainly doesn't have them.

I know with the MK2/2.5 some cars had the bulb holders in place, and by merely inserting the bulbs you got footwell lights! I've looked on both the driver and passenger side on my MK3 several times but to no avail, so either Ford have got wise to it or they hidden them really well...

Yes mate the plastic frame dose hold an led strip. Take the cover off and see if there is a two prong connector, that is what I have when I take the led out, question is can anybody tell me the reference for the light as its only 8watts and fancy something a little brighter.

Mike, no mine didn't have them, but to be fair the overhead light is bright enough to see something down there should it be dropped

i have done a guide on fitting footwell lighting to both front and rear footwells in the focus mk2.5
but the main interior courtesy light and loom for the interior light is the same on the mk3 focus so if you click on the footwell lighting guide in the list below, you can view the guide which includes links to purchase the specific bulb sockets for the front footwells to fit the existing socket frames.
aswell as cable reference and links to all equipment required.
also available to download as PDF

i'll have a fish around together with your guide and see what i can piece together, choosing what colour lights will take me long enough! :rolleyes:

not blue lol i was told by the ford guy that its not the same for the mk3 as its all wired into the dash options ie you can switch lights on off etc and in that respect it may work but if it causes any damage on there own head be it but they thought and stated they may be wrong that there was something extra electronically in the titanium to make them work i dont know how much truth there is to it but the guy did say the mk3 is far more integrated than any of the older models
