I'd assume by looking at them they are original Ford parts?
Easiest way to fit them on a Mk2 is to splice them into the feed wire that supplies power to the lighter socket light and earth to the socket ground wire.
The knobs will then illuminate with the side lights.
I'm actually contemplating that upgrade myself.
Been eyeing this one up-

On a Mk 2.5 with the lighter socket on the centre console afaik there isn't an illumination wire (maybe hidden under the console but can't confirm or deny).
In that case you can take a longer wire over to the headlight switch and connect to wire 16 which is the side light live circuit.
The same can apply to the 2.5 with the keyless start button in the console instead of a lighter socket. (not sure if the socket in the arm rest tray is illuminated or not?)

I know what I want in my stocking this Christmas but I don't think I've been a good enough boy.

They are pricey for what you're getting (surprised with the ingenuity on this site nobody has come up with a DIY version of this but maybe there's some food for thought!) but a guy on another Focus forum was selling them through the bay for half price a while back. Dead easy to fit too, as mentioned above.

There was, (but not widely known) a bit of loom these illuminated knobs connect into.
ENG P/N: 8M5J-14F011-AA
Floor Jumper Loom
From: 15-12-2008 Manual Transmission, Rpd-Spc Illuminated Gear/Shift Knob
No Idea where it plugs into, but other variants of this same loom are for things like adjustable foot pedals so its there somewhere lol, plugs into same connector so theres a connector for it there somewhere because from what I was able to see before all looms support adjustable pedals, probably a hiden connector somewhere taped up to the loom.
