I've not experienced this issue myself,
I purchased mine from fordpartsuk.com
there are many replicas from China on the market selling as Genuine,
One way to know if genuine is by taking a picture with the Flash ON
if genuine the red reflector strip shines bright in picture just like the RHD unit does.
if a replica it doesn't shine/reflect as good.
Drilling a hole would help but also allow grit and dirt to enter as you drive.
I suggest drilling a hole around 8.5mm
Then fit an 8mm pipe to the hole and silicone around it.
Cut the pipe at around 2" incles long
this will allow the unit to drain off without and back flow debree entering the unit.
I bought from Tezza, who ordered it thru GKN ford chesterfield, took about a week.i think came Germany.
Deffo a genuine part.
Just noticed water in the euro reverse light, i know its a known issue but what actios or precaution have been taken to iliminate the problem?
I'm thinking of drilling a couple of tiny hole on bottom to drain out water. Is that the solution?
Any other ideas or tips?
That looks sweet! Was it from that ebay seller in poland?
Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC
No its from polish ebay seller,Although idea taken from him. This is specially custom made, by a company who speciallize in making speedo cluster dials.if you compare it with ebay one than you will know the quality difference. This is the company that made it for me. I have used these guys before. They made me mk1.5 speedo cluster face & ghia trip pod face as well.
Note the logo on face of cluster dials.Tezza did this on his st170 .
