2014 headlight unit swap

Recommended Posts

Hi all

New here, and new to ford as an owner. Obviously mixed reviews but thought I'd get away from German and try out the blue oval. 

Anyway collecting a 2014 Mondeo estate on Saturday and I know it comes with reflector headlights and that typically these are pretty poor, so I'm wanting to swap these units out for something better and road legal. Are the projector style units a direct swap with no wiring alterations?

2014 was the cross over year between the MK4 and MK5 with the MK5 being the model affected by the crap reflector headlights.

Could you confirm which one yours is?

Hi, mine is the Mk4. Does that mean that the reflector may actually be ok?

I had those on one of my mk4s and thought they where fine and I live out in the country so good lights are needed.

+1for the above.

 I used to drive MK4's regularly at night on unlit roads and never thought there were any issues with the factory fit reflector headlights.

Cheers guys. Just heard horror stories about really poor ones. Haven't had chance yet to get on dark country roads
