Mk2.5 Gear Stick Gaiter Clips

11 July 2012 - 07:08 PM

Hi all,

Looking for info as to how the gearstick gaiter on the mk2.5 clips in.

I have put one of the arm rests into my mk2 and it works well however I need the below pictured gearstick gaiter (including chrome base surround)

Can anyone enlighten me ideally with images as to hwo it clips in and will my console take it? Basically, is there anything car specific about how it clips in or does it clip straight to the console? If it goes straight to the console it should be able to clip in when the console is out, so if it cant then im in trouble.

Picture kindly by lenny.

The attached picture is what mine looks like.

1.4L Focus Survey

19 March 2012 - 10:17 PM

Hi folks just wondering if anyone could input anything into this

I drive a 1.4l 2006 LX focus. Only getting 500km per tank compared to a few friends 600km+ (that's a 2005)

Can anyone just put up at what revs and/or speed they change from gear to gear? I know it requires a bit of work to concentrate on it but boardsies are nice like that it'd be nice to know if I'm driving it harder than most, I would consider if very soft. Changing just past 2000rpm for all gears, might even be a but to early?!

Also how many kms your getting out of a tank (I run it nearly dry).

Thanks folks!!

Swapping Instrument Cluster 2006 Focus

13 March 2012 - 10:00 AM

came across this thread about removing the instrument cluster.

It looks pretty simple and I've no issue doing it.

my 2006 focus has no trip computer, just a mile counter (see thumbnail)

What i'd love to do is get an instrument cluster that has some form of trip computer from a focus thats being broken up and stick it in.
I've seen two types, one from a newer model with orange large square display. another from a 2005 zetec with an elongated green display. i reckon the second one would be much easier to get working.

few questions for anyone in the know
WIll the plug be able to fit into a different cluster with a trip computer?
I will need the stalk to control it. any idea on if the wires are there for the more advanced stalk?
will this be an issue with the main odometer memory?
