The mirrors with indicators are standard on the Titanium/Ghia versions (after a certain production date) and ST versions of the Focus MK2. On these cars the indicators in the mirrors are controlled by the door modules (CANbus). Lower spec MK2 versions do not have door modules.

 

Door modules are only needed for the following options:

 

* Factory alarm with double locking.

* Comfort windows (4-electric windows with quick-up and quick-down functionality on all windows).

* Puddle lights in the side mirrors.

* Indicators in the side mirrors.

 

If your car already has one or more of the above mentioned options the car should have door modules. In this case the indicators can easily be installed and connected to the door modules. Afterwards it is nescessary to activate the indicators in the GEM module/fuse box.

 

If the car has no door modules it is also possible to retrofit the mirrors with indicators but is is a lot of work. To make the indicators in the mirrors work you have to install the wiring from the GEM module/fuse box to the doors. This may sound easy but it is a hell of a job because the doors needs to be removed to get the wiring through the rubber hose/connector on the body of the car.

 

 

My car did originally not have door modules so I had to install the wiring from the GEM module/fuse box to the doors. I converted my original electric powered and heated mirrors  to mirrors with indicators using the original Titanium/Ghia mirror covers and indicator lights. It is not nescessary to change the complete mirrors if you want to retrofit the indicators.

All MK2 mirrors have the spaces for fitting the indicators but as said above, only dome have the right wiring/plugs in the right place.
The mirror connecting plug on the indicator ready mirror is a different shape to the one on a non ready mirror.
Brigante has retro-fitted mirror indicators on his Ghia MK2 but bought a pair of mirrors for the parts and then canibalised the bits he needed.
He ran the wiring to the side repeater looms and then sprayed the repeater lenses body colour, but you can get chromed blanks designed for MK2's with the mirror indicators.
Links to what you need are in my next post- (I'll get the details of the bulb holders you need later when I'm at my PC).

That's a massive job.. I've asked a few garages in the past and they either say that it's not possible, or not worth it.. I have double remote central locking (I think) but that's it.. I was wondering if it would be possible to retrofit rear electric windows, but again, noones willing to do the work, and I'm damn useless..  :unsure:

The socket and wiring (would need modifying to self wire) is part (Finis) number 4533383 and is about £17 per part.

That is very interesting because when I considered retrofitting electric folding mirrors and electric rear windows I had great doubts of not having the module module seeing this kinda gives me ideas, I have factory alarm with double locking and indicator mirrors mk2.5 so I wonder if I got the needed module!
