Hi Guys

 

I have a Ford Focus 1.6 Titanium 1.6tdci with rear led daytime running lights already

built in, and would like to fit some front ones built into headlights

 

Can somebody confirm if these are fitted as standard to Titanium-X model ??

if so would wiring harness be already present in my Titanium model ??

 

Meaning if im correct its just a headlight replacement ??

 

Regards huey45

You would need to check out the wiring diagrams or check to see if you have extra plugs but the same issue remains that u will need headlamp washers in the bumper and levelling sensors on the suspension arms.

hi guys thanks for your input, im only after headlights with fitted drls, not headlamp washers, although I believe my

headlights can be levelled not with lighting switch, has various numbers on pull out stalk..

In fact I stand corrected I just had a look at the brochure ive got there and right enough the ST1 + 2 headlights dont seem to have DRL's built into the headlights only the ST3 headlights do. Appologies Paul.
By the looks of it Keith you would have to fit the xenon headlights to have the built in DRL's which would require the headlamp washers and auto levellers to be fitted also

Have you thought about stripping the lights down and fitting LED strips inside the top section?

I would suggest the alternative is to fit the same as Preee and Lenny, fog lights (£75 ish) with DRL's built in if the headlights are too expensive?
