They're little black peg-looking things that just going into the holes right at the last line on your tach, and right below the 10 on your speedo.

He has an 05 so it doesn't have needle stops.Im pretty sure all year Focus that have the Duratec up to 07 do not have needle stops i know for sure 05-07 do not.The gauge faces he got are universal to fit all years up to 07.
