Thanks for the info. For around £80 I could buy a 6 ton press myself but it depends what ton is needed. Do you know if 6ton will do it or will I need a 12ton?

I activated it in the HEC and GEM sections in ELMconfig but couldn't get it to work. I'm based in the Leeds area

I've got a focus with GEM code ending in BH and bought the 4 spoke cruise control steering wheel a couple of months back but couldn't get it working. My car was detecting the buttons being pressed but the cruise control wouldn't activate. I'm guessing I'll need ford etis to programme it, does anyone know anywhere in Yorkshire where I can get it done? Or does anyone on here have a copy who could activate it for me? I'll be willing to compensate for time and effort.

I've just tried this on my 2006 focus zetec with GEM code ending in BH and it didnt work. I connected the steering wheel and using the beep test where you hold down heated rear windscreen button while turing ignition on and the cruise control buttons worked. I then enabled "cruise control configuration" using ELMconfig in the HEC and GEM but no luck. Have I missed anything out?
For people who have got it to work when you turn the ignition on does the cruise control light come on? If it does, an easy way to test to see if your car supports it could be to try enabling it using ELMconfig and if it illuminates your car supports it.

If someone butchered a 4 spoke steering wheel and had the buttons left over, would I be able to plug them in to my car without changing the wheel at all? I understand they will not fit to the wheel properly, but I would be able to find someone to make up a mounting bracket so they can just clip to the steering column.

Don't want to risk buying them and find they HAVE to plug into a socket which is only on the 4 spoke wheel. I would normally just dive in and try it, but would rather ask you experts first.

The connectors are the same just with a couple of extra wires. I would have taken a pic but I've just put the airbag back on. If you want you could connect the controls into the wires under the steering column

Thanks for the replies, I might take a walk down to my local garage and ask them.
I'm actually thinking about doing that, complete turbo back, with egr delete and a performance remap but I can't do anything for a few months when my insurance is up as my current insurer doesn't do mods.
Does anybody know anywhere that does exhausts for mk2 1.6 tdci focus, TRW sell one but I'll get stung on currency conversion and postage. And are the any recommendations for garages to do the remap? I've heard rs tuning in Leeds are good?
