front markers & reverse #70475 in super white
fogs #75647 (WARNING!) the largest tab needs to be trimmed to make it fit. it's real easy. just put the new & stock lights side by side. match the tabs. trim the the one that doesn't match. takes only a minute to trim.

Sorry if this seems like a stupid question, just dont want to order more then needed.

Do you have to order each bulb individually, or do they come in pairs?

So in total, we'll be replacing 10 bulbs?

Also for the: rear brake & rear running #23454 in red, do you select the single or dual circuit?

I'm pretty sure they are both single I tested and only one light lit up when I hit the brake the other one just stayed lit and when I took my foot off the brake it just turned off

I tried LEDs for the tail and brake lights. Didn't work out because they don't draw enough current to make the flasher relay work. I didn't try any extra resistors or anything, but it was a total bust as a plug-in mod.

really? how come they work with my car? the rear brake & tail lights are INDEPENDENT from the directionals. i didn't mess with those because of that reason. all i did was swap stock bulb for led bulb. NO resistors. the only thing i get is "brake lamp burnt out" message on screen at start up.

Sorry, you're right it was the turn signal LED that didn't work. The brake and backup lights were fine. I tried it right after I bought the car and it didn't work the first time I tried it so I just gave up and went back to the stock bulbs. I don't remember if I left in the LED tails or not. I'll have to check.

the only problem is, in the rear, you will get a message on screen saying "tail light out" because of the low voltage. but they look so great, i'll deal with it.

I just bought my Focus and thinking of doing the same thing you did, but I live in Mexico and I'm really looking forward to see how it looks like, can you please load your photos again?
