Manual says it's covered along with the license plate lights.

How does this work for the Focus? Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Joeywhat I have a brand new one for sale in the classifieds. Bought the wrong one (I wanted an ST light), so just FYI if you do need the complete assembly and don't want to pay retail for one.

Elizabeth If the whole LED assy is out, I would suspect a wiring problem and not burned out LEDs.
Before you go buy another third light assy check to see if power is getting to that spot.
More than likely it is not the LED assy.

CunFFS13 Try to get it at any junkyard

vegachicago I took mine apart to check on its nature. It's a thin circuit board with leds soldered in. You would have to desolder them but most likely a resistor or diode burned out. Good luck trying to find the correct one and putting it in. You gotta buy one from Ford unfortunately. Good luck

suss6052 It is an LED assembly on the hatch, I don't suspect it would be much different for the sedan. It is therefore not user serviceable other than as an assembly.

jpdavis On my 2007 I can replace my little bulbs..u just got to squeeze the two tabs together and pull down should come apart pretty easy

Slo86GT Gimme a sec. I have a spare I'll check to see if those are replaceable.
