Do Not Sell My Personal Information


Replaced rear tailgate boot strip but can't find a Ford badge that fits


Recommended Posts

Hello all,

I have a 2008 Ford Focus Mk2 Titanium. Unfortunately, my chrome boot trim got trashed. I have replaced with an after market one from eBay. Lots of sellers seem to sell the exact same product (photo attached)

I fitted the strip but I cant find a Ford badge that fits this anywhere! I can find one a similar size that is a stick on, but the design on my trim takes a Shell type one with an outer layer that should push on.

I'm sure others must have replaced with these trims over the years and it looks like it has been designed to take a particular badge. Can anyone shed on light on whether it is possible to buy that badge. Every other part of the trim is perfect so I'm sure there must be a badge somewhere!

Many thanks in advance for any help offered :-)

Welcome to the forum!

 

This one (not genuine Ford) looks to be the right one according to the details within the ebay listing.

Hi,

Thanks so much for posting. I didn't think of searching for different models but that does look the correct size. I will need to cut off the pins to make it flat but it looks like it will fit perfectly if I glue it in with something.

Ordered 🙂

Best Wishes

Hi,

Just updating that I received the badge but it doesn't fit unfortunately. I know they are available as it's the one shown at 00:15 and 07:53 in this video:

 

This is the exact trim I have. It looks like the badge just pushes straight on, no pins, etc. It needs to be 15cm or just over according to my calculations.

If anyone else has replaced their trim and found the correct badge, please let me know where you got it from.

Many Thanks 👍

I know this is a ridiculous idea, but have you thought about popping down to your local Ford dealer parts dept, and asking him the part no.of what you need, and if price is agreeable, just buy it? If too expensive, at least you have the part no. for further buying research.

The ford badge on the rear on an original ford tailgate is 1779943 on MK2. 

Or try 1532603 , that's a MK2.5 one that fits on the trim with no pins. 

I still have the original badge which doesn't fit. I thought because it was aftermarket, it must take as different badge if the original didn't fit.

Perhaps it's the 1532603. I'll give that a try. If that has no pins, sounds hopeful. Thanks very much! 👍

I called them up, they said to email the parts department which I did but never heard back. That's why I thought it would be easier to post online.

Thanks very much. I've ordered a genuine Ford 1532603 now. It was expensive at £37.50 but fingers crossed, it will fit. If it doesn't, I can return and I'll then buy your one. Many Thanks 👍
