On the Focus MK2/MK2.5 all instruments, control panels and switches are lighted by LED's. All of these LED's are soldered onto the circuit boards. Some Circuit boards have SMD LED's and others have normal top LED's. The only way to replace a broken LED is by resoldering the LED and replacing it with a new LED of the same type/color/brightness.

The driver side window switches are lighted by top LED's. The passenger side window switch for 2 electric windows has also a top LED and the passenger side window switch for 4 electric windows has a SMD LED.

Both SMD and top LED's can be found on Ebay.com for low prices. My experience is that finding the correct brightness may be a challenge. I simply order some different LED's and compare them with the Original LED to determine the best match.

I maybe soldering failure from factory, most of cases resolder will help.

EDIT: Don't use too much of heat on SMD's, it may burn useless. Same thing Top led.

Actually i doesn't matter how bright LED's are, you can add resistor, so it dim a little. And it also secure led's current handling. led stripes include resistor itself, but also adding resistor i might be dim a little more ;):)

I find the light on the passenger switch the on drivers side to be dimmer than the drivers switch, I was wondering if this is by design to make it stand out more or if there might be a problem with it, can anyone else confirm if this is the case on theirs?
