|Blue5ive||I was referring to straight swap. But with enough money, work and modifications you can make anything work.|

Just like putting a V8 into a Focus it takes time, money, skill, insanity, and etc...
Personally I don't think a dash swap would be worth it, unless it's going to be a spectacular project car.

|Blue5ive||Euro mk1 to euro mk2 will not work. Completely different.|

|Sniper Focus||I've seen some crazy dash swaps from different cars before, it might be possible, but not without a ton of time, know how, and effort.|

|mainest||I swapped a USDM '03 SVT dash (Mk.1) into a USDM '05 (Mk.1.5). Because Ford changed the mounting system for the head unit, I had to swap the steel crash bar (frame) as well as the plastic cover. All of the mounting points were the same, so it just took more time and effort than I expected. Good luck.|

Mechanically im not worried about the idea.
It was the Euro mk2 i was asking about and tbh i was just thinking out loud before his shell went to the shredder. I have swapped dashes in other cars before and just wondered if it was possible with the focus.
Thanks for the advice guys

|sleepyboy||If your talking about the Euro MK2 then no it won't but if your talking about the American focus 00-04 swapping to a 05-07 dash then yes it will fit but the door panels won't line up and who knows maybe not even shut without swapping those over as well.|

Ok first things first, are you mechanically inclined? I'm not saying, are you good at changing your oil... Swapping a dash is, very very simple and very straight forward. However it can be a total PITA if you have no idea where anything goes when you get to the install.
Things to keep in mind - if you Change your mk1 dash to a mk2, your interior door panels will NOT match up! Yes you "could" get away with it, but it won't look right. So if you are going to do this, make sure you also swap your door panels with the mk2's
