I have recently taken delivery of a new C-Max "Style" and I'm very pleased with it.

I decided to add fog lamps so ordered a new switch, 2 foglights and 2 bezels from the Ford Parts counter at my local garage. I managed to do the job having to use a screwdriver only once right at the end. The panel to the side of the switch pulls off and I managed to get my fingers in to release the clips holding the switch and then swapped it for the new one that pulls out two clicks (one click for Front fogs and the other for rear fogs).

At the front, the plastic covers come off. Reach up inside and find the plug for the new lights all taped up to the headlight(?) wires. This then plugs straight in to the new lamp. One screw secures the new fog lamp. The bezel needs spraying car colour and then just clips in. Job done. The relay and panel light are all ready in place!

Finally, I found two vacant bulb holders in the footwell. I added two 5w bulbs and I've now got dimming footwell lights.

Next job is reversing aids but in all honesty I need the front parking sensors first!

PS Does anyone need a light switch with only one click for rear fogs?

Thanks for that
Found them and they are working for a 54 LX spec

Whilst checking the wiring diagrams for this I see that the top interior lights can both have map reading light alternatives. Does either spec of light fit in the same size cut out in the head lining?
