I think it should be possible. At the german forum a guy did this.

I don't see why it wouldn't be possible, but I use possible lightly. It could be simple plug-and-play, but it could also involve more components that don't come with base or 'S' model trims.

The worse could be the BCM refuse to connect to the new IPC....

He wants to change his IPC display though. It's filled with info that his focus wouldn't relate to. It may power up and give him a big blank screen. Might be good to find a dash pod in a salvage yard over paying new prices just in case it doesn't work.

Oooh! Now i see it. I totally misunderstood what he was trying to do. Hey he might as well go all the way and swap an ST dash in.

Forgive me for asking the obvious, but if you drive a 2014 model, why wouldn't you claim this repair under factory warranty? Do you not have a warranty on your car? Just wondering...

Assuming the top picture is of his cluster, he does not have a 2014 model (the Fuel and Temperature gauges were changed.)

In any case -- OP, here is the thread where the gentleman from Austria swapped his instrument cluster: http://www.focusfanatics.com/forum/showthread.php?t=489417&highlight=instrument+cluster

He pulled it from a junked C-Max and while I didn't get through the whole thread, it looks like you need to employ FoCCCus and find some firmware. It looks do-able though which is what is important.
