I have searched several threads and this is about as close as I came to finding anything on this, I am buying a 2005 base ZX3 do all the gauge clusters work or are they 2005 specific? surely someone has tried/done the swap from no tach to agauge cluster with a tack?
I haven't yet heard of a successful swap in an '05. The backs of the cluster do appear different than earlier models. The only difference that I'm aware of in the front of the clusters, is the theft light that was mounted next to the hazard lights on previous models.
Thanks I was also wondering about cruise control? My 2000 was base like the one I am buying and I added cruise control to it with a kit from Ford. I called Ford parts but he was not very helpful, told me I was crazy they never had it for any year focus. Is there anywhwere on the sight we could do a FAQ on the differences from 2004 Zetec to the 2005 Duratec? hell till popped the hood looking at it I had no idea they dropped a different 2.0 in it.
