Tiger-Heli Old thread, but ...
@ Cyberface: http://www.focusfanatics.com/forum/s...ad.php?t=63935

You will want it to be from an 05-07 Focus, the 00-04 won't work.

ABS and TCS are the main issues (and mileage). If your car doesn't have those, you could have an indicator light on on the new cluster. If it does and the new cluster doesn't support them, you would have no failure indication.

cyberface There are a few ebay auctions for Clusters I have seen and wanted to confirm that if its from a same type focus it should work...??

I just have to swap it out and the Tach will function? Nothing else to do?

Even SVT to SE?

Wobbn08 Well I took mine apart, and getting it out is easy, but getting the plastic off without breaking tabs is not that simple

mac.mogul I haven't taken apart the dash of the focus yet but if its anything like the cluster in my mustang, its super easy to get it out and swap the faces.
01-04-2012 11:41 AM
Wobbn08 No, but you have to pull it out the dash, and taking that plastic piece off isn't very easy either.

mac.mogul You don't have to disassemble the whole thing to change out the face.


But if you're wanting to switch with another car's face, chances are you will have to buy the entire cluster. Very expensive. IIRC.

Wobbn08 Just be VERY careful if you're pulling your cluster apart. I had the bright idea to make my Shift Up light the "Focus" that is displayed in the Tach, and wound up bending the pins on the back of the gauge cluster which activated the PATS. That's a $700 mistake you don't want to make. TRUST me.

mac.mogul The cluster can stay the same, the faces are removable.

Hell you could make your own gauge face if you wanted to out of vinyl and crayons.

yes but the top speed or rpm is in a different location as far as how much spacing
