MK3 Focus RS & ST Illuminated Kick Plate installation guide


Troubleshooting and Issue Assistance

Tools Needed:

  • Small Flat Head Screwdriver

Please follow the below guide for installation your CEUK Kick Plate lights in your MK3 Focus

Step 1: Remove the OEM Footwell Light unit using a small flat head screw driver - Use this to pry the plastic lense out of place.


Step 2: Unplug the OEM Light unit from the wire connector - Please note, you'll see the plug has 3 connectors, but your existing lense only has 2 prongs - As does the CEUK Kit - we will be using these 2 connectors.


Step 3: Take the CEUK Wiring loom and insert the 2 prongs into the OEM connector. The RED Cable on the CEUK loom should plug into the Green/Brown wire - and the BLACK Cable on the CEUK loom should plug into the CENTER hole!


Step 4: Please note - some cases of incorrect Polarity may occur, if the light doesn't come on immediately, unplug the panel, rotate 180 degrees and re insert!


Step 5: Take the CEUK Panel and insert the 2 prongs into the female connector on the CEUK Wiring loom - Matching red with red and black with black - this will give you your ultra bright footwell lights.


 Step 6:Once you are satisfied the LED Panel is working, Peel off the sticky proof paper on the rear of the CEUK Panel, and stick the panel to the OEM Lense you have removed! Try get it as central as possible


Step 7: Replace the OEM Lense in its original hole with the panel secured over the top - tuck the wire as much as you can into the hole and allow a little to bridge round the lense to the front - Take care when re inserting the lense to not penetrate the wire!


Step 8: Remove the rubber around the frame of the door - this should pretty much fall off! Route the wire through to the door frame and run the cable down the "Tunnel" like section of the frame until you meet where your kick plate will be!


Step 9: Test fit your illuminated door sill to decide where you want to put it. Ensuring the door does not catch on the plate. Once satisfied, clean the area, remove the red backing on the 3m tape and secure in place.


Step 10: Plus the kick plate into the wiring loom, hide the excess wiring in the "tunnel" - re insert the rubber door surround and you're all done!


Trouble Shooting and Issue Assistance:

1: My Panel has a couple of LED's out in a straight row

If the LED has a straight line of 3 or 6 LED's out - or 2 straight lines of 3 on the panel, this is totally normal. The LED Panel has circuits designed to control voltage and will switch off if the are drawing too much power from the vehicle - Any more than 6 LED's out then please report this to us as a fault.

2: Iv plugged my panels in but nothing has come on

2 solutions here - 1: You've plugged the panel in incorrectly, please again refer to the above instructions. 2: The time delay has crept in - after so long of the doors being open the lights switch off - close all doors on the vehicle, Lock it then unlock and open the door again!
