#378873 Spoiler Brake Light

Posted by slartibartfast on 26 June 2014 - 09:21 PM

I have fitted a mk 2.5 spoiler to my mk 2 and I can confirm the brake light on the standard (non st type) spoiler is identical on both models. The main part of the spoiler body is also identical, all they did with the mk 2.5 was to add the little extra wings on the ends, and make it colour coded.

Go to etis.ford.com and type in the details of the car you are interested in, and you can view the build spec for that specific car.

#309314 Ford Parts Catalogue Website

I just came across this website




 I expect everyone on this forum already knows about it, but I have posted a link just in case someone has not yet seen it. Very useful for parts identification

I would say it is the vehicle speed sensor that is the problem, it is mounted on the gearbox somewhere, and I think that if it is faulty, it would produce the problems that you seem to have. 


#286580 Retrofit Auto Lights And Wipers

On my factory fitted auto lights, there is no adjustment, but you can adjust the sensitivity of the auto wipers.

I have a Ghia, so it has these as standard. I must say, although auto lights are nice, I would not miss them, but the auto wipers are great, whenever there was light or intermittent rain, I was always adjusting the intermittent wipers manualy on my previous cars, and still was not happy with the wipe interval, lt was always not right for the conditions. The auto wipers are not foolproof, but most of the time they adjust to the wipe speed/interval required perfectly, and I don't have to fret any more.

Hi Phil,
I bought mine from ebay and it worked for almost two years,
I had my own log in on ford data base and could print ford receipts and invoices lol
I didn't know it could be download from the internet for free but if it can then that would be the way to go.
It makes it much easier to get parts from ford,
You can purchase parts by just requesting the part number, no messing with VIN numbers etc.
The copy I had was in russian too when installed but you can change it to english easily.
Once changed it stays in english.

Thanks for the very informative reply, I will have to look around and see where the best place is to get the software.

Hi Lenny,


I am interested in getting one of these, but you say yours has expired, does that mean if I buy one from fleabay, I will have a limited time that I can use it?
