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! 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.

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.|

I completed this upgrade in like 20 minutes, It was hard to find the right puller, had to modifiy the one I got from O'Reilly's, other than that it was a snap, This thread was great, thanks for the great pictures. I was able to have the cruise turned on for like 30 dollars at Parks Ford in Tampa, no hassle no fuss.

Secondly, I do not recommend renting a steering wheel removal kit from an autoparts store - the Gen II focus steering wheel was designed to be removed with a small 2-jaw puller (which can also be rented from an autoparts store):
I hope these corrections save others the time and agony I recently went through.
