Removing Garage Door?
Posted 10 March 2013 - 06:31 PM
I mean the little compartment under the switch panel as I am wrapping the trim but can't see any screws or fixings holding it in!
Also any ideas what the 3 little holes in the middle of the switch panel are for? As there is a funnel on the back so guessing they are more than decorative.
Thanks for any help!

to remove the garage door on the mk2.5 you need to remove the whole upper console piece around the gear leaver as the garage door is glued in place
you can use the first part of clives guide here on how to remove it
its a lot more involved than on the mk2 but it's still quite simple, about 4 screws n a few bolts

There should just be one screw inside the cup holder recess.
Lift the centre console top piece up from the rear pull firmly as there are clips holding it down.
You only need to move the console piece back about an inch or two so that the bottom of the dash tray is free to move, be careful of the 12v socket and wires as they sit in a hole moulded into the lower console piece.
Pull the bottom of the tray towards you and with a little bit of an upwards rotation and the tray should lift out.

I did find I had a connector with 2 wires in the back of one of the blanking panels next to the heated screen switch. Any ideas what that could be for? Also what are the 3 holes between the heated screen and rear window switches are for?

The connector could be for an esp off switch

If I recall correctly from left to right the switches are -
Passenger airbag deactivation notification, front demister control, rear demister control, and depending on model the last one is either the esp deactivation switch or if you have the rare sunroof it will be the sunroof control switch.(maybe on the cc model it could also be the roof control switch too)
I also believe the vents in the middle are for a temperature sensor if you have the electronic climate control fitted rather than the standard manual aircon system.

Looks very nice and neat! I would love a centre console like that, what model is it from, because I have a 2.5 focus, and it has the same centre console as my previous 2005 mk 2 (alas without the armrest).

The plug was tucked in the back of the blanking panel on the left. Cheers!
Definitely the cable for the passenger airbag deactivation alert.-
The switch goes in the glovebox in the push out hole next to the aux port position.
The cable for this is present taped up out of the way in all Focus Mk2 and above, and is often mistaken for an unused/not installed aux cable in any focus without one already in place.
