Which Motive pressure bleeder cap for a 2nd gen Focus?

Getting ready to bleed the brakes on my dad's 2006 Focus and my 2010 Focus. I have the Motive pressure bleeder with the three tab cap for older Fords, but I cannot figure out which Motive cap is the correct one for the 2nd gen Focus.

Anybody know which one is the correct cap?

Thanks

Per Motive's site:

The best thing to do is to look at your cap if your Ford vehicle is newer than 2005.
The 1100/1109 is simple to tell - it is a female threaded cap that is about 1.75". It actually screws on 1.5-2 full turns onto the reservoir.
The 1107/1117 is a twist to lock 1/6 turn cap. It has 3 locking tabs on the underside of the cap that engage tabs on the reservoir neck. It has an ID of about 2.0"
The 1118 is also a twist to lock 1/6 turn cap. It has 3 locking tabs on the underside of the cap that engage tabs on the reservoir neck. It has an ID of about 1.9"
Small Ford cars built on a European chassis such as the Focus and the Fiesta many times will need to use the European Bleeder 0100 or the 0109 with corresponding adapter 1100/1109.
You can see pictures of our adapters with measurements at the below link:

From what i recall the focus is on the Euro cap:

I actually have this one arriving this week to use on my BMW. I no longer have my '07 but ill test fit it on my ST. I am pretty sure (based on my memory) its the same as the '07


edit:
per this: https://www.ogracing.com/images/moti...tion-guide.pdf

the adapter needed is the 1109:

just to follow up, this fits my '13 ST and my wife's '10 Mazda 3 (which isnt too far removed from focus)
