focustokus Awesome write up, thank you for this. Just sourced a wheel and am going to give this a shot on my 5spd manual. Haven't read anything in the thread about it being tried on a manual, but doubt it will be an issue seeing as the later models had it on the SE.

AmishFocus I'm the "Mom" with the 2010 Focus in the post above - just got my cruise enabled at long last today! Thanks to this thread for all the hints! Along with the pitted steering wheel, it was the one big thing missing from this car and now that is not an issue. Hooray! :)

Blackpin93 I'm attempting to do this swap on my mom's 2010 Focus. The walkthrough is pretty solid except for one part: the steering wheel puller. It did not specify any specific KIND needed, so I rented one from Autozone. After about an hour of messing around with it, trying to figure out why it wouldn't work, I finally found a post somewhere that stated second gens require a 2-jaw puller. There are no holes to thread bolts into using the one from Autozone.

In short, save yourself the trouble, make sure to get a 2 jaw puller, and do NOT get this kind:

Another success!

Another success! Bought a good steering wheel with the buttons on Ebay for $68, changing it out was quick & easy with the tutorial here, just got back from the one Ford dealer in my city who was willing to listen to our request, paid $62 and it works flawlessly. THANK YOU for sharing your knowledge. You've saved us tons of money.

2010SVT I've got the wheel forever ago but still havent done the swap yet. Been waiting to buy new buttons for the cruise control lol since that was the only part of the steering wheel that wasnt in good shape. This post was helpful though. I pulled the wheel off the totalled focus I found using this post lol.

That's because that's the EUROPEAN Mk2. That site is for all Euro cars.

I hope these corrections save others the time and agony I recently went through.
