00-04 gauge clusters are all plug and play swap besides the svt gauges.
Its like 4 screws, then 1 plug in the back. Its good to get one from an
automatic, if yours is auto, so you won't have to see the shift up light
that comes on the foci with manual transmissions. Just make sure you write down
the exact mileage on your old cluster, and the mileage on the new one when you go to
swap them, so that you'll be able to keep track of your actual mileage. Now go get that
gauge cluster. It'll definitely work for you. I swapped one in mine, and its a great mod.

Unplug the back of the Cluster and see if its white.. if the plug is white with a black/grey retainer clip they will work.. I took my cluster from a wrote off fofo and the front acrylic was smashed and works fine in my car :)

Actually Both my wagons stock clusters had operational shift lights ( both are autos and never turn on under any driving conditions but when I light test the cluster the shift light illuminates

This cluster in the pic is the one from the scrapyard.. it was out of a SPI manual and works flawless with my Zetec Auto :)

he's an SPI focus icon [:D] lol...... but loud, did I see something about all being plug n play except the SVT? is that because of the oil pressure and oil temp gauges that are also attached, which would go where the coin holder is (at least for me, but I don't think I'll ever get any change out of that thing, whoops)

yeah theres three variations of clusters

one with a white plug and receiver

one with the grey plug and receiver

and the almighty SVT which only works with SVT's unless you feel like pretty much repinning/wiring your dash which is very possible if you know what your doing.. have a ton of time on your hands and don;t mind tearing off your dash to expose the harness hehehehe

I tested the theory out I borrowed a cluster from my bud yesterday ( he owns a scrapyard) and it was out of an 04 and plugged it into my 01 and worked fine :p the cluster he had has less mileage then wagon 1 but since its 150k and under he wants $75 my price or $100 any other joe's price LOL
the greys will not even plug in and yeah right like I could ever get my hands on a SVT cluster like he said SVT's ( cars) are Gold and when he does get them in they never hit the yard there kept and sold to bodyshops.. I'm on the waiting list for a running rear end hit one lets see if he can get me one :D
