The size of the display depends on the type of audio system. The following display sizes are used on the Focus MK3:

* 2-line tekst display.
* 3.5 Inch monochrome (black/blue) display.
* 4.2 Inch full color display.
* 5 Inch full color Sat Nav display.

From the late Focus MK2 (2007 onwards) Ford switched from a square panel air filter to a cone shaped air filter.

Except from the Focus ST (late MK2 and MK2.5) all engine types have the same air filter. Even the Focus MK3 does have this same cone shaped air filter.

On the Focus MK3 you can activate the following options with the FoCCCus software:

* DDS tire deflation warning system. Only if the car does not have the TPMS tire deflation warning system. For this option it is also required to initialize the ABS module.
* Hill start assist (all engine types except the 1.6 TI-VCT).
* Autolocking.

For other options and settings it will be necessary to also install the missing parts.

I also used the FoCCCus software to program the correct settings in the Central Car Configuration after retrofitting the following options:

* The original Cruise Control system.
* The original footwell lights.
* The original Sat Nav system.
* Projector headlights with aftermarket HID lights. There is a setting for aftermarket HID lights. This setting deactivates the bulb check system of the dipped beam. This setting also forces the BCM to output a steady 12 Volt signal to the HID lights instead of the frequency controlled PWM signal which is used on normal halogen bulbs to increase the lifetime of the halogen bulbs.

On the scrap yard I untaped the radio wiring of the scrap car and took the navigation audio wiring. These 2 wires are connected between the radio unit and the display and are taped together with the other wiring into the main wiring loom.

You can also cut the radio unit connector and the display connector with about 15 cm of cable out of a scrap car and use this to solder your own wiring of the correct length.

In Topic: Mk3 Parking Sensors

Early Focus MK3 versions suffered from water ingress into the connectors of the PDC sensors which could cause problems. Diagnostics of the system could point you in the right direction. A defective sensor for example will generate a DTC code in the Parking Assistance Module (PAM).

Depending how handy you are you could try to remove the sensors one at a time, clean them (especially the connectors) and reinstall them.
