Focus mk3.5 replacing outer rear light

Hi new to the forums and a bit desperate. We go away tomorrow and i need to replace a cracked rear light cluster.

Does anyone know how to do this as i can not find a Haynes manual for the newer model.

Thanks

Is that the taillight? If so just pull the carpet back and there will be 4 screws. You will need a clamp to take off the screws. A screwdriver won't work

[EDIT] I thought you had a sedan

Check out a how to for a 2012 sedan. I think the mk3 and mk3.5 sedans may have interchangeable taillights as far as bolting them on goes, though the mk3.5 inner tail lamps have more bulbs sections vs mk3 only having a reverse light. I'm hoping to do a mk3.5 taillight swap if possible, though that may mean needing the mk3.5 trunk lid.

The taillights for the Mk3 are different than the Mk3.5 for both sedan and hatchback. The layout of the bulbs are different and can cause issues getting the wiring harness to cooperate.
