This is a guide to fitting a Light Switch unit with a dimmer dial to Ford Focus without one as factory fitted.

The part used came from a C-Max MK5 PART NUMBER-4M5T13A024BA

Undo the T25 Torx and pull off the panel to the door side of the drivers area.

Unplug the ODB port from the panel so as to avoid damaging the wiring (needs 3 hands really to push 2 metal clips and pull the Port clear)

I found it was easier to reach the locating clips of the light unit from the gap at the side and had to push, pull and wiggle the unit to get it out, finally pulled forward and down to unlocate the top one first then got the bottom one clear.

Unplug the cable loom from the old unit.

Check the units are the same size and the plugs are the same.

Posted Image

Attach the new unit and test the lights, dimmer and levellers.

Posted Image

Push the new unit into place (takes a bit of a push).

Posted Image

Relocate the OBD port into the trim and refit to dash.

Replace the torx and Robert's your Mothers Brother.
