Check the engine bays fuse and relay box,
They have been known to allow water in resulting in various issues.

Yea thats the plan anyway. Is there much hassle to removing the rear bumper in order to change the towbar

straight forward removing mate,
But plenty of WD40 on the side bolts,
Remove some screws from the rear inner wheel arch and reach inside to remove the nut from a bolt on either side,
Go easy though,
because the head of the bolt is moulded inside the plastic bumper bracket and it the nut sticks, it can lock up resulting in ringing the bolt,
Replacement brackets are cheap like 20 euro each but preferably not need them,

Four bolts and two plastic rivets to remove the rear bumper


#367939 Pics Required Please

Yea thats the type of one I was lookin at lenny. The one I have at the moment, the bottom of the bumper had to have a 2" square cut out to accommodate it. Really dont want to cut the diffuser for something that isn't used too often

good thing is the zetecS kit will cover the cut out,
Im sure you could remove the existing towbar kit, quick spray coat black and sell it onwards on perhaps Adverts.ie
That would cover atleast have the cost of the detachable.


#367922 Fitting Mk2.5 Rear Lights To A Mk2 Focus (Inc. Rs/st Dual Red Mod)

Posted by Lenny on 25 May 2014 - 09:01 PM

Im liking the look of the tinted lights on the RS pic a lot so i will prob get a light smoke tint and have a go. I have the fly eye tint on the front lights and it looks ok but i think i rather the smooth look.
 
I see what you are saying about not cutting the loom in case i swap it back to sell but i would prob leave them on if i got the right money and keep the plugs n solder them back on if i didnt.
 
Thanks for the info and your help mate. No doubt i will be asking you for advice again soon enough lol.
 
Not fitted the push button start by any chance have you?
 
Thanks.

no bother feel free to contact anytime,
Ive nit fitted the push start mate :) i saw a video on youtube from the guys at mightycarmods and decided not to bother :lol:
see there vid below, these guys are epic i highly recommend watching every episode mate there a great laugh,
But i have the haynes manual should you need reference and if your not logged on here using the app,
Click on my avator image to view my profile page,
Ive got links to my 28 modification guides there, some you may find of interest,
The links dont show on the app for some reason.


#367901 Fitting Mk2.5 Rear Lights To A Mk2 Focus (Inc. Rs/st Dual Red Mod)

Posted by Lenny on 25 May 2014 - 08:30 PM

Ahh right. I c what u mean now. As the 3 brown cables that go to the LED part r part of the new loom I have bought, as long as the loom in the car functions through into the new loom the led should work.
Am I understanding u correctly?
I was just gonna match up the live n earths, cut the plug off the new loom n join the cables but I guess it won't work like that.

yes thats correct mate,
Your idea of cutting and splicing will work fine aswell,
The led brown cables will come as part of the ford loom you purchased,

The only issue was the difference in loom plug/socket between the mk2 and mk2.5 models,
But cutting and splicing will work fine,
The additional brown cables still join in to other cables on the 4 port plug,
It still ends in 4 terminals so easy enough to follow, i was just thinking of a way to connect them without cutting the looms as this would help retain there resale value if you ever decided to sell them onwards,

Perhaps be easiest to cut looms and use crimp terminals,
Plug/socket instead of twist and tape,

#367888 Fitting Mk2.5 Rear Lights To A Mk2 Focus (Inc. Rs/st Dual Red Mod)

Posted by Lenny on 25 May 2014 - 08:03 PM

Cheers for the info Lenny. Excellent breakdown. Am I right in thinking there is 3 connections to the led part?
I only took them out the box, quick check to make sure they wasn't cracked n put them back in.
I currently have the original half red half white on there n they have been tinted with spray professionally n look good but I rather the led look but not sure whether to leave them all white or tint them.
CheeRs again.

no prob,
Yeah mate three brown cables to the led section,
I see your fitting to a mk2 model, so the loom will need wiring,
If i was you,
Id find a mk2.5 thats breaking either local or on ebay,
Get the tail light loom sockets with some loom cut out of the mk2.5

Then cut the plug section off your existing lights and make a male mk2 to female mk2.5 loom,
You can then plug the mk2.5 tail lights straight in to mk2.5 sockets without trying to figure out the additional led cables since all three are brown.
Just an idea mate,

I saw this RS had tint film applied and i reckon the film gives it a nice gloss black sorta shine,
But given the cost of the units i was sceptical about altering them encase it didnt workout rite,
