There are some out there. If you search Ebay for BAZ15s you will find them. But they might not be the type you are wanting.

I think it's actually BAZ15d (d for double contact on the base for the stop/tail function, as opposed to s for single contact) that we're after, something like these maybe (I just searched ebay for "BAZ15d red led")...

Yep, the pins are at the right angle, though for the mk2.5 the pins are at the same level in terms of height.

Right, what a shambles! I remember when I first had to replace the standard red bulb going into the motor factors and the guy kinda grimacing when I told him what it was for... Told me how they're a really rare bulb and he only knows them used on the facelift Focus and Saabs maybe, practically justifying why they were about a fiver each!

 

Anyway, after doing a bit of research it seems the fitment we're after is BAU15d.

Offset angled pins, but not staggered in terms of height. So now the challenge is to find a red LED version!

Saw those ones you linked aye, no price or anything though and seems you have to make an inquiry to find out availability or place an order, so might do that to see if they do small orders or if they're just bulk suppliers.

 

So have you a bulb out or what and need a replacement? Time I needed one I got a standard red one in Lifford for about a fiver but you can get a pair for about that price online I think...

One of them the paint is chipped so it allows yellow light to shine though and it doesn't look very good

I was working at the back of the car yesterday evening there, changing the boot switch, so decided to remove the lights while i was there for a closer look at my bulbs... Mine are definitely offset (120degrees) and staggered (different height) pins. Are these the type of LEDs you've bought but can't fit?

 

I'd be happy to take them off you and try them on mine if you haven't returned them yet? Do you have any pics of the standard bulbs when you removed them and/or the new LEDs you bought? Would like to see pics just to clarify as it's strange that the pins on yours are at the same height when mine are offset.

Ah right, I thought when you posted the above you were saying that the bulbs you bought had staggered pins, but the Focus needed same height pins. I'm gonna try order some LEDs then cos I think offset and staggered shouldn't be too hard to find! BAZ15d as mentioned by Marty.

You're spot on aye... They look similar as they're both offset and staggered, but the pins are the other way about if ye know what I mean. At least I'm clear now that we def need BAW15d!
