Replacement Interior Light

21 posts in this topic

Hi all,

Looking for a replacement interior light surround (pictured below) for my Mk7:

The little catches on one edge on mine have snapped off when replacing the interior bulb and the plastic cover won't clip back on. So yeah.. need a replacement.

Is my best bet a scrappy? I've tried eBay already and couldn't find anything.

Any help would be much appreciated.

If it's the the standard one from a Zetec-S (ie withOUT ambient lighting) I have my original one left from when I upgraded to ambient lights.

EDIT: The top one

I have a spare one WITH ambient lighting an map lights if you would interested in an upgrade!

On a side note, Nath, where could I mount the B/T mic other than in the roof panel? (I don want to cut the liner for the larger panel :wacko: )

Up to you where it's gonna look least obvious but still pick up your voice. Might have to poke out the top of the pillar that runs up the windscreen?

You could run it out from beside your courtesy light.

I have my parrot mic there and it picks up perfectly.

It's the Ford "round shape" mic that comes with the roof panel, unless I could bodge in a regular mic to the cabling?

Thanks for the replies guys.

I completely forgot about this post and ended up buying a replacement light from FordPartsUK, haha.

Cost me around £20, which is not too bad I don't think.

Interesting seeing these ambient light upgrades though!

Might invest in an upgrade after Christmas. ;)

Where do you get the one with ambients? Might just slot that in myself if it's easy enough :P

Breakers, European Parts, Ford etc. You'd need to wire it in though a tap a feed off somewhere.

They're not cheap and rare as hens teeth for some reason.

I have a link somewhere, will chuck it on when I'm at my computer.

Here you go-

As i said, not cheap but it's a really nifty upgrade.

To connect it properly you'll need about 1 metre of 5 amp cable, a t-tap or scotchlock and a small crimp bayonet connector (the size usually used for car speakers, about 4mm).

Just run the cable from the bayonet connector on the ambient light circuit to a wire on the headlight control unit (number plate light switching pin 16 on a Focus 2/2.5).
