In Topic: Replacing Water Damaged Tdci Badge

Thanks for ya help guys, stuck the new badge on yesterday. All went very smoothly, pretty much did what you guys said..masked off around badge...heated (carefully) with hairdryer, used dental floss in a gental sawing motion to get old badge off..cleaned the area with bug remover, then washed it throughly, lightly dried with hairdryer just to make sure was totally dry then placed new badge on...was easier than i thought :)


In Topic: Rear Interior Dome Light On Mk2 Saloon

Thanks for the responce jeebowhite.....i think you are right. From the websites ive looked at 42mm seem to be the biggest LED festoon bulb you can get. I guess i should double check by taking the standard bulb that is in there now out and measurIng it before i order anything. Ive replaced my number plate bulbs with LED lights but im sure they were 36mm and they were too small to fit rear interior. Its gota be 42mm for the rear interior. Its annoying with the MK2 Saloon Titanium cos a lot of parts for it are just slightly different from the standard hatch MK2 Focus's. Does seem to have more in common with the titanium c-max/s-max
