indicators in top of headlamp is mk6.  But there is confusion on the Mk numbers as they are not the same in every country. Whilst in the UK we call it mk6,  on most part finders like on ebay it is a mk V  (roman numeral for 5)

about 2005-2006 there was a facelift, the easiset difference to spot is indicators in the bottom of headlamps, this is generally known as mk6.5

No idea about fuse. when my reversing light stopped working it just needed the plug connector on the reverse light switch twiddling about a bit.

There's a fuse diagram on the back of the glovebox on the Mk6 so you should be able to find it...although the basic images can be a bit misleading.  It's F48 on the ST but I don't know if it's the same on all of them.

Not sure where the reversing switch is on fiesta, some cars they used to be somewhere on the outside of the gearbox near where the gearstick goes into the box, maybe reverse switch needing replaced. Not expensive, roundabout a tenner, there's a thread on it here. >>>
