I don't have a C346 Focus, so thats why I'm asking.

Plus it looks like from that photo a newer version of the heated windshield elements found in the C170.



Here you can see basicly the same pattern in the glass, BELOW the matrix black. Same as in the OP picture.

Sent from my iPhone using FF Mobile. Typos and terseness are to be expected.
It's called a third visor frit. It makes up for the space the two sunvisors don't cover. The dot matrix and black surface around the perimeter is to hide what's under the glass and to protect the windshield adhesive from UV light. I install windshields. No U.S. Focuses have Heated windshields.

There might be one, you never know. One can import anything as long as they have the right amount of money. Plus that harness is hard to find.

Your owner's manual would have probably told you.
