Dry ditch or a real high curb/roadside you can drive one side on. some kind of dip to straddle side to side instead of driving over end to end as you would to cross it.

Let's take a look at this from another aspect - WHAT MODEL is the 2006 LX you have?

Was the MkII avail. there by the time you bought it? IIRC it was about that time for intro in Europe, we had a 1.5 through '07 before getting our version MkII but you are always ahead at least a year, maybe more that time.

By the time you get to a MkIII the speedo is no longer from the transmission sensor but from the wheel sensor data, and IDK if they did that for the Euro MkII as well.

Answering where to find a speed sensor no longer means anything once the model type doesn't use one.

For that year, it's an MK II, Duratec engine (intake manifold on front, plastic valve cover). You can check if you have an IB5 or MTX 75 transmission by looking for the reverse switch. On the IB5, it is located on the front, next to the selector cable front cover. On the MTX 75, you'll find it on the top of the transmission.

If it's an IB5, here's a diagram of the VSS location and removal instructions -

Easiest would be to look up the Wikipedia page on the Focus, it's rather Euro-centric paying more attention to what is avail. there & worldwide.

UK seems to pay much more attention to what year a car was 'plated' than the model itself, making determination of exact model even more important.

Prev. links to pictures on the web would be of help for an actual look to see if it's there, the easiest way to tell if yours uses that sensor without feedback from someone who KNOWS what model you have and the details of it.

The VIN is another way to identify the build. Many VIN decoders online and Euro parts stores such as this one Car Parts Online VIN/Frame Catalogue have it too.Good luck
