#170993 Illuminated Ignition Ring.

Posted by Barry_ on 06 March 2012 - 05:08 PM

Awesome little mod this - hate not seeing the ignition slot when its dark - suppose LHD cars face inside so ford never thought this would be needed. Don't help that there is the gap around the barrel - in the dark and you stick it in the wrong hole :blink:

Going to have a proper read of this thread tonight and see what i think.

Nice find

Fair cop - surely you can see the light strip on the front of the dial though and know that feet is 6 o'clock etc???


Also bud - not sure if you seen the updated link but these are 12 new delivered so think you might struggle getting 20 for them.

#148842 Guide To Fitting Mist Type Jets On Your Ford

Fitted mine over the weekend - Cheers for the guide in post 1 - piece of cake to do..

Got to say mine are not too low, slightly low but get good coverage, gets the side windows slightly too like Haylo - but this is just tested at stand still - maybe even better on the move.

Seemed to get a lot of excess fluid on the bonnet though - just cleaned and polished the car before i tested them and it had a nice water run down the bonnet!!!

Great little upgrade - better than the jet ones which i often end up blocking with a snapped needle when adjusting LOL

LOL

I would suggest Showroom shine to waterless wash, polish and wax car in one application but sounds as if you need to spend as much time as possible to reduce those testosterone levels :lol:

Your sig reminds me i must sort out the rear wash wipe pipe rubbing issue!!!

Waterproof rear seat cover!!! So what do you get up to in the back of your Focus!!! ;)

(must admit that the 2 baby seats somewhat puts that idea out the window LOL)

An hour!!!! Christ didn't think i took that long!!!

Lets see what u got - newer mark 2.5 Style trim?? Not sure if you got aircon to glovebox - you might have, easy spot though (if its the same)

Look in glovebox and on right hand side wall i got a twisty plastic vent which twists to open and close - pipe fits to the other side of that - just slot on - no clips or anything - When u remove the glovebox is just slips off so you could easierly not even notice it.

Any idea what the weird moulded vent is at the back of the glovebox? (if u got one) I guess its just a vent to get some airflow in there (unless its linked to the aircon - there to vent out or something)

Eventually got around to replacing the glovebox bulb this weekend (had a spare in a little bag of bulbs found in shed)

Thanks again for the pic's etc, very useful, also remembered the tip about part closing the glovebox door(??) as won't close otherwise - think its that little bit on the right hand side you need to make sure is in place.

Saying that had to take it apart 3 times, firstly thought the bulb had blown again then realised it was coz the interia lights only stay on for so long!!! (DUH) then once all done i used the phones video to check it switched off etc and it didn't. Turns out the pin switch bit wouldn't stay wedged in place - figured out i just needed to push the inter wedge bit back in proper place (great discription i know LOL) and clips in place fine.

No one mentioned the Aircon pipe though - dam that was a pain in the !Removed! to reconnect - sure i properly done it the hard way but got there in the end with some pointy nosed plyers..

Anyhow - just a quicky to say thanks for the pics etc again.
