Hi guys, I'm thinking about putting this on my 09 focus and I'm wondering if anyone has put one on theirs and can give me any tips on how to fit it and if there was any issues or anything

To be honest mate,
If possible id save the extra few quid and buy genuine either from a breakers or from ford.
The one you linked can be purchased from Taobao.com for as little as 20pounds if buying from china.

But if buying from breakers, here is the offical ford rear diffuser fitting guide for you to view and print.

Thanks guys! Trouble is I'm on a bit of a budget, what sort of prices would I be looking at if buying from ford and how would I go about getting one?

From ford your looking around 190-220 pounds

But you can pick them up second hand on ebay in great condition,

If you purchase a rear diffuse on its own from a breakers, ensure you get the toe eye cap as its also got a lip on it and you would still require six ford rivets but I've got 40-50 of these I can supply to you 8 for 3.50pounds

I can guide you on bumper removal if required aswell.

Or even how to use two plastic bottles as fog and reverse light units while your bumper is in the bodyshop getting a lip fitted to it.

Try searching taobao for "ford fox" "zetec s focus" or "focus fox"
Chinese seem to have called the st a fox, I found it their before I'll try locate the link for you.

Here is the thread from before where I found it for another member
http://www.fordowner...is/#entry194374

Can't seem to find it at present though. Takes many hours of searching taobao and adding he good stuff to your favourates bar on your internet browser for easy finding at a later date.

Lenny, do you still have any of those rivets sitting around?

I need ten to swap a pair of bumper brackets over, would the rivets do that job?

If you do have any left TBH I'd want a dozen in case I bodge any.

Hi mate,
Ill route them out today and let you know what I've got,
They should do the job no bother,
Tricky to get the nut off the single bolt on either side of the car inside the rear wheel arch when removing the bumper,

Are the mk2 and mk2.5 bumper support brackets the same shape?
The brackets cost around 15 pounds each from ford,

Here's the ones on my mk2.5 for you to see if they look the same,
And ill get back to you later today with a count on the rivets

And if you need it,

Cheers Fella.
Brackets are the same, have a new pair waiting to swap over as the ones on my project bumper had the bolts ripped out making them unusable.
Just need to drill the old rivets out, fit the new brackets then the project can proceed.
