I knew we forgot something! I think I looked though when they were out and I couldn't see a distinguishing part #.

Well, don't have a part #, but I found this site that is selling them. (#13 & #14). You can also look on other Ford parts sites. Use Titanium trim to get the ones with the chrome trim. Description of vents is DASHBOARD AIR VENT Yeah expect to pay about $100 for both with shipping. They're not Cheap.

Just ordered a set tonight from the link I posted. $83.84 + shipping to be determined when they package them and weigh them. I'm guessing $100 total with the shipping. I was going to just remove mine and paint the trim with silver paint but said screw it and bit the bullet and ordered them.

Props to Twenty for the excellent write up with pics!

Twenty, got a question for you. When you swapped the vents from your buddy's ST, you said the '13 headlight switch plugged right in. Did the 13 switch have an extra plug socket for the trunk release, or was it identical to the 12 switches from the back? I'm thinking about getting a 13 switch and trying to get it working in my 12. Not having a trunk release button on the inside of the car irks me to no end. My fusion had one, the escape has one, even the 08 fusion SE had one.

From the backside they were identical.

Good, so more than likely I just need to get the trunk button enabled.

Any Focus S/SE owners wanting to do this swap? I have an ST and want the flat black vents. You send me your S/SE vents and I'll send you my ST vents.

Anyone?
