I'm pretty sure you can get these bulb holders on eBay. Will try and find a link for you.

Right guys had a mooch on the old intaweb found some interesting things. It looks like the wires I found under the footwell belong to the (wait for it ) multi colored ambient lighting. So how did I come to this conclusion ?.fist of all I downloaded a wiring diagram for the ford focus mk3 2011 on here's a pic.. Screenshot_2014-02-21-10-05-48.jpeg

Well if you look at the diagram the three wires BG/BW/BW I tested the BG and the BW and guess what they were both live ....BW was earth so what about the socket that fits,s the three pin plug I hear you cry. Yes I did have a look on the
intaweb again and found this..look at the bottom of the page at the attached pic,s.


Yes it looks like a lamp cover ..but if you look carefully you will see a socketbuilt in with three pin for attaching the plug .so popped off to my loacal ford dealer and asked regarding the part I needed he told me the part No is 1757822 and it's discribed as a lamp assy-luggage compartment for me to obtain this item it would cost me £26.27p inc vat as to say I left the dealer's without one I thought I would take my changes looking on eBay or at the local scrap yard so that's were i am up to . by the way swifty yes my car is a mk3 here's a pic..

when you find a scrap yard you will need to make sure they are from a Titanium and Not a Titanium X , as the TX is colour changing and has another control unit by interia mirror.

well I've only looked under the passengers footwell .move the seat as far back as it will go lie on you back and put you head under the glovebox and remove the soft pannel.with the two pinch tab holding it. place your hand in middle at the back of the glovebox.just were the soft panel finished you will feel a small rectangle bulb holder just above that there are a bunch of wires wrapped in black tape get a Stanley blade and CAREFULLY cut the tape and the little white plug will be there

Had a look in the passenger footwell of my friend's 2011 Zetec today and found this plug taped up. Looks different to yours though - any ideas?

As well s Nathan the plug you have found looks like it's for plugging into a module for satnav or sync  something like that.don't think it's for ambience lighting.

 

Well what have i been up to over the weekend I have been scouting round the local car scrap yards for the lamps .I did manage to find one mk3 yes one to say it was bare was a understatement it was like our kid's wallet nowt in it at all.I had a look under what was the dash .guess what nowt!! .no lamps I think it was same spec as mine.so the search is ongoing...

 

Aswell as going to the scrap yards I had a look under the driver's side of the footwell after spending ten minutes of straining my neck and softly squeezing wire's. Yes yes I found it the little white plug and it was not were I expected to be it was to the right of the footwell. Next to the driver's door just above the lamp holder.were the bunch of wire's meet wrapped in black tape as in the passengers side but the passengers side was slap bang in the middle of the footwell.
