I used V-LEDS so I don't have to worry about it overheating. It is also powered by parking lights 12v so it's not a problem in case I forget to shut it off.

Not on the US model. You would need the euro tail lights along with a European wiring harness as US harness is missing 2 wires to the rear light harness.

Yes, the German Focus for sale in MX has it!

Check the light knob...



And voila... There's no foglight... But there's a rear foglight installed



Try using this VIN to order parts

To make this functional in the US you need a European Harness as the US one is missing the wiring needed for it to work so just changing components won't work. In europe the headlight swith has a button for front and also for rear fog lights.

I have been watching this discussion for a while now and thought I'd offer my 2.
USDM Focus have parts/switches modeled for the 'world car'. So, Euro stuff will fit over here, and visa-verse. It's just some features are not turned on, or wired. The Focus headlamp switch, as long as it has the Front fog light icon indicated on the switch will work, but a little rewiring is needed. If you take the headlamp switch out of the dash, and pull the multi-pin plug away from the switch, and get a flash light.
Look at the back of the switch, and at the bottom of the pins is an alpha-numeric system assigned to the pins. For the fog lights, F and R is assigned 58a, and 58b.
Don't remember which is which, but a little continuity tester, etc. will work for you.
Simply run a wire from 'a', or 'b' to your lamp and you should be good to go. GL
If you look up Daniel Stern, not the actor, he has written extensively on lighting in
European cars, and about fog lights. Google him. GL

For the rear foglights, front electronic adjustment there are wires not installed on US/north American cars. So just changing a switch will not allow it to work
