Question Newbie

Hey ya'll. Just joined and wanted to stop by and say hi. #2 daughter just bought a new ride for her growing family (they're growing up, not her growing out). We bought her 2005 ZX4-ST. Back-up lights did not work and after checking fuses and bulbs found this site and recommendations on b/u switch on transaxle. Have to have someone else check that is more mobile than me.

I have a couple of questions. The latch on the armrest cover is broken , any suggestions beyond replacing with another piece of plastic? Also, is the cubbyhole under the CD player where the ashtray would fit? We're smokers, she isn't. Does it just pop out or what? As far as the ashtray, junkyard or possibly dealer? Any info would be appreciated. Dean

Good morning to all you newb's.... early risers for this site....LOL

My name's Billy and I can help you with alot of the wiring and electrical ?'s you might have. I specialize mostly in the Audio/Video area.

As far as finding parts for your cars...05's and a 04 should be easy at a junkyard. Dealership prices will always be just that, dealership prices. And BTW I work at 17 different dealerships.
The owner of the SVT should check the threads dedicated to your cars. They're a sorted bunch.....no offense guys.
As far as the 05 cars go... post it up. Find the right spot to drop a new thread and SOMEONE will respond.

Welcome to FF and be sure to check the FocusFest threads!!!

Welcome home then Chris....
You name it and we are either on it or have already done it around here. Post some pics of that 08 you got and show it off a little. If you need a specific ?? answered then try to post it in the right spot, it will get answered faster that way.

I hang out in the interior mods and sedan area's with my passion being audio visual installation, so if you ever need help there feel free to PM me. Look out for the threads on FocusFest coming up, ticker at the top of this page. Welcome to the largest on line family of Focus owners in the world.

Hey everyone!


I'm Chad, and just picked up my first Focus last night.


For years I've been driving Nissan 240's, and have owned 3 of them and have modified them in many different ways. I've had a couple coupes, and one fastback. Done the SR20 swap and have built an all-motor KA once.


So I sold my last 240 and I'm now trying something different. I just picked up a 2002 Infra-Red Focus SVT and so far I'm loving it.

Hope to find out more about these cars and meet some cool intarnet people too.
