Camskill lists the fog light as the same for all FTOs.

The parts database thingy probably lists all these?

What a brilliant Idea - once the blanks are filled in we'll stick this in the Kbase!

Does that dipped beam headlamp bulb require any "mods" to make it fit, or will it go straight in? The only thing I could find on the net regarding this said you could use a Ford Puma bulb, but had to cut bits off to make it fit. Also, how can the bulbs be removed/replaced?

If you buy the 9006 bulb it fits sraight in. You need to twist the bulb to remove it. Alos the plug connection can be very stiff to remove, You need to be forceful with it, but used a cloth or something to prevent injury should the lamp break.

Do I just twist the bulb anti-clockwise to remove it then? There's a metal wire that looks like some sort of clip running round the plastic. I imagined I would have to remove this before the bulb would come out :?

I presume the clip folds back, I havent changed the bulbs on the FTO but with any other car it does, its just a retaining clip.

The Bulb inside the Tiptronic gearstick housing (lighting up the letters and numbers) is a T10 1W WEDGE with a 9mm Base.
