Instrument Cluster Replacement

03 December 2012 - 04:29 PM

Hi folks,
I have decided to take the plunge and I am trying to replace my mk2 instrument cluster with a mk2.5 one.
I purchased a cluster from ebay advertised with 28k miles on it, when I have attached it to my car, it is reading 49k. The confusing part is that my car only has 41k on it!
The guy I bought it from has tried to convince me that the cluster gets the mileage from the ECU, it is not stored in the cluster and he claims to be able to provide proof of the 28k claim.

Does anyone know if his claim is correct or not? The only thing I can think of is that the cluster is from a ST, mine is just a 1.6. Could the cluster read the ecu differently as it is from a different size engine car?


Mk2.5 Boot On Mk2

12 September 2012 - 11:50 AM

Hey folks,
I've been looking for a mk2.5 spoiler to fit to my mk2 focus, while looking on ebay i have came across the full boot with spoiler for the price of the spoiler!

Question is...will it fit and how easy would fitting be?

It is £100, despite seeing on here that people have picked up spoilers for around the £40 mark I am not hitting as lucky or should I just persist and wait for a spoiler to turn up?


Bulb Advice!

29 August 2012 - 09:35 AM

Hey folks,
I am looking to upgrade the bulbs on my mk2 focus starting with the reverse light and indicators. I have read about the Q5 bulbs for the reverse light can someone confirm that I need the 382 fitment?

Also what silvatec bulbs would I need for both rear and front indicators? A good ebay link would be fantastic!

We need a sticky on all the bulb fitments required!

Any suggestions on good headlights and fogs?



Mk2 Cluster And Centre Console Updates

03 August 2012 - 09:47 AM

Hi Folks,

Just been looking through the forum at some of the cool things people have done with their "foci" on here!

I have a mk2 57 focus ghia 1.6 petrol, just before the facelift came out.

I have done some searching and can't find out whether it is possible to first of all replace my instrument cluster with the 2008 facelift one (silver trims)
Ebay link below! It says on the page it is compatible but mine is the 115bhp and that isn't specified. Has anyone already done this?


Also I like the look of the newer centre console (like lennys!) with the 12v socket behind the gearstick. Is this a mod that can be done or is it a different size or something? Also is the wiring already there for the socket?

Thanks in advance for the help and keep up the good work!
