Does anyone sell an ignition key guide?

I don't really like having to bend over and visually guide my key in every time I start the car. Does anybody know anyplace that sells what I'm looking for? Just a simple plastic guide/cover that I can ease my key into without having to look. I couldn't find anything on eBay at least...

Yeah, our SE Hatch, I would love to have one of those. My 2006 F350 has one... why not a Focus? I have mumbled about that several times!

I try to just turn my wheel to the right so that it's easy to see the key hole, not a perfect system and shouldn't be necessary, but it works.

I'm thinking SOME model Ford uses the same key switch but has the guide. Swap it in, and shazaam, we're in bidness! I'm going to bug my parts guy today.

It's such a simple thing, that guide, how can they even consider not including it?

what upsets me is how the ignition looks incomplete right there and it allows the ignition to get loose and wiggle around too much. this has been an issue amung quite a few '12 FF owners

^^This. Seems that way to me, too. It just looks "cheap".
