Mk1 Focus side indicators

Recommended Posts

Hi

 

How easy is it to change the orange indicators on the MK1

 

I want to put these on:

 

Ford-Focus-Mk1-1998-04-Triangle-Smoked-Side-Repeaters-Indicator-Spare-Part-Black

 

How easy are they to do???

 

 

 

Thanks

There should be two little clips at the back of your side repeaters, I think it was a case of pushing down on them and they should easily come out

Will try and get the original ones off, then order the tinted ones

I fitted these to my Mk1.5. They look so much better than the amber ones. The biggest problem is getting the old ones out. Haynes simply says push them down, as Matt said above, but in my experience it wasn't that easy. If I remember correctly (and it's a long time ago) there are two plastic hooks at the top edge and a plastic springy clip at the bottom. The trick is to push downwards far enough to disengage the hooks but I found the springy clip would "bottom out" before they were clear of the aperture.

If you get hold of the new ones first you'll be able to see how they're held in.

Don't forget you'll need amber bulbs. White would be an MOT fail.

Thanks for that :wink:
