If you find that you dont have the footwell sockets
Then see my fitting guide in the list below this post. It contains links to purchase all required parts for less than 12pounds.

guys, does the ST spoiler from a MK2 fit a MK2.5? Do they look the same?

The spoilers from a 2.0 and 2.5 are fully interchangeable whether standard spoilers, ST or RS.
The only thing you will need to do is splice the cables for the brake light as the plug ends are different for the ST and RS ones.
Basically, if you buy one off eBay you need to ensure that it includes the connector plug and at least a couple of inches of the original wire.

I've seen people putting 'garage doors' in the centre console in front of the gearstick, can someone tell me where to get one or have a part number for one from ford?

I have spotted three ashtrays that will fit on eBay-

This one is from a 2009 which means that it won't have the mounting area for the lighter socket, some have bought one of these and drilled a hole to allow the lighter to stay in it's original place at the back of the cubbyhole.

http://www.ebay.co.u...984.m1423.l2649

These, i can't tell what year they are from.
They may or may not have the socket mount, i'd recommend contacting them for either more info or internal photos.

If the ashtray looks like this inside then it's a MK2.5 one-

If it looks like this it's from a MK2-

For an easy life a MK2 one is preferrable as no cutting required.

As for fitting, you need to remove the trim around the gearstick first-

Also there is usually a rubber cubbyhole liner too, that needs to come out.

Also you should have these bits to hand, the original lighter socket and an illuminated ring (the wire to connect for the illumination is taped to the socket feed wires.

Next remove the driver side panel next to the clutch pedal, the round plug pops out and there is one torx screw then the panel pulls off.
This gives you access to the back of the lighter socket to assist in removing the socket.
The original socket mount is a black plastic ring with no illumination at all, you need to seperate the ring from the socket by simultaneously pushing out on two plastic lugs inside the socket, bit fiddly but doable.
There is a proper tool for doing this but i've only seen them for sale from American eBay sellers and they charge stupid postal prices-

Sometimes the trays come with the lighter and/of the illuminated ring in place but more often not.

Replacement illuminated ring if needed-

Fitting takes no more than 30 minutes and you can't go wrong with the wiring as the connectors only go on one way.
If you need any more advice or help please feel free to contact me (by P/M if you prefer).

Whereabouts would I need to look ?  at the side of footwell or say under the glovebox and steering column.

 

thanks

 

Hoping my focus 08 mk2.5 has them.

If anyone that wants a 'garage door' for a MK2 Focus can hold on for about 5 days I may well have one available as I'm currently bidding on a Carbon faced one on eBay to replace my plain grey one.

If I win then there will be one going spare complete with the ashtray insert.

(that's if I win the carbon one anyway)
