Ford Focus 2005 Q&As
Check out real-world situations relating to the Ford Focus 2005 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.
Will headlights from a 2005 Ford Focus interchange with a 2000 Ford Focus?
There’s a distinct line in the sand here. If the 2005 Ford Focus you’re referring to was a late Mark 1 Focus, then yes, the headlights should interchange with an earlier Focus as both cars were more or less the same. At the time, Ford was making use of what was called its `Edge’ styling philosophy which was all hard lines and sharp angles.
However, for the Mark 2 Focus which came along in May 2005, Ford had softened the styling considerably, and the headlights of an early Focus will definitely not fit the Mark 2 model as they are a totally different shape.
What puzzles me most is where you managed to obtain a 2000 Focus as the car was not introduced into Australia by Ford until late 2002. The car did exist prior to that, but not in this country. Perhaps you’re buying headlights online from an overseas seller. If that’s the case, make sure they’re for a right-hand-drive Focus as they’ll physically point the wrong way if they’re for a left-hand-drive car. They’ll also be technically unroadworthy if that’s the case.Show more
Ford Focus 2005: VIN numbers not matching
That's a tricky one. Vicroads won't allow the vehicle to be transferred to a new owner until they can verify that it isn't dodgy, and that's fair enough, but I can't see why it should take weeks or months for Ford to trace the other car. All you can do is to try and keep the pressure on Ford to sort it out.Show more
