Turn Signal & Reflector Questions From ST Owner

Hey all,

I'm planning on retrofitting my ST soon and am in the final stages of figuring out what I want to do. It seems that both the turn signal and reflector detatch after opening the headlight assembly. Now here's my real question:

Where can I get clear turn signal bulb covers and what should I do with the amber reflectors?

The Focus ST ST3 package HIDs have clear turn signals, as well as a lot of euro foci. I don't think the reflectors are included on euro models and (obviously) all US models have them.

Any ideas?? Thanks!

the orange should pop out. the bulbs you want are called stealth bulbs, they're silver/chrome but glow amber. you can find them on amazon, ebay, etc.

I'm looking for the replacement clear bulb cover.. cap... thing inside the headlight, I know about the bulbs already. I want to physically purchase a replacement of these (see pic). The european focus gets this as well as any Focus in the US with projector headlights.

Don't buy from stealthbulbs.com. I tried them in my rear turn signals and they were significantly dimmer than stock.

you won't find that piece by itself. that's why i suggest popping it out, or just leave it in there. the headlights aren't designed to be taken apart.
