I got mine by searching for "Focus gauge cluster". Then I just went looking for an 05 - 07 cluster.

oo such a sad day. been stoked for the past week. finally found a cluster on ebay. mileage was way off but who cares? got it here n i was like a kid on christmas. spent 45 min in the blazing nc sun and got it in. got super psyched cause i didnt have any random abs, brake, or tcs lights on. i come to find out that the fuel gauge is stuck. also there is a dark spot on my speedo when i turn on my lights at night...

I'm guessing the dark spot is likely just a burned-out bulb.

The fuel gauge might be more of a problem.

You might be able to transfer the guage from your other cluster, but I'm doubtful on that - hopefully someone else on here knows the answer!!!

Fill your tank full of gas and take the needle off the fuel gauge do a needle sweep and place the needle back on the full mark.Dont push it down to far where it will get stuck.

Needle sweep - or I'm pretty sure unplugging the battery neg cable or the cluster will cause it as well.

Hope This Helps!!!

this will not work unless you want the wrong mileage to show.i tried this in my 06 and ya gotta take your old cluster and the replacment to a ford dealer and get them to reprogram it to your car. its not worth the money and time.

There's a big difference between programming and reprogramming. You paid $65 for a dealer to program a new speedo cluster for the first time to match an existing speedo that was being replaced during repair. This is totally legal and much different than reprogramming a USED speedo which is seen by the federal government as a fraudulent act (odometer roolback/manipulation). The federal goverenment is trying hard to stop fraud and unfortunately this makes it tough to recycle perfectly good speedos. Most foreign cars don't allow speedo swapping anymore; a tamper dot will illuminate to warn used car buyers if you do it. Dealers have tools to program new speedos, not used ones.
