    I fitted the same, easy job for sure just the wiring is a pain in the hoop hidden behind the panels in the drivers side.
    I also snapped one of the studs off that sit horizontally at the back, I can't see it making a huge difference but just to be aware that it is possible to break them easily.

    Hi i cheeted a bit with the wireing I tapped in to the loom near the spare wheel well and took fly leads from os indicator.i do have one problem and that’s the reverse sensors the 2 centre ones are picking up the tow ball giving a faulty reading took ball off it ok put back fault again so I may have to disconnect the 2 centre sensors. Just glad I did not have to drill in to the spare wheel well to fit the bar as mine is full of lpg tank.

    Well I don't have to worry about mine any more, my car was hit from behind today. I'd say its a writeoff.
    The tow hitch was bent back into the bumper, roof is bent down on the O/S and boot smashed so it won't open or close.
    Hard to find one of these in good condition now.

Hope your ok just see how you feel tomorrow because it takes a day before the pain realy gets hold.if the roof has gone that’s the end they wrote my friends 4 year old focus of for a back pumper and paint damage to the rear 1/4.maybe time to move on to a 8th Generation.

    Roof is not bent but both rear quarter panels are buckled so the rear doors won't open.
    Looking at 8th Gens now.:no:

    All feels fine at the moment, I was pissed off TBH, I could see it happening as he approached me from behind, I'd estimate 40mph impact.
    That car was in great nick, dusty so it doesn't show well but mechanically its perfect, plus a set of Michelin Pilot Sport4 with only 5k on them.
    I have cleared the glovebox and removed the air compressor but left the spare wheel.
    Sad now.

    Get your whiplash claim ready I got £5000 + expenses for mine but I still have trouble to this day. If you are and you have legal cover on your insurance they will do it all. I was with Churchill at the time and they were brilliant ( got me a new Honda Civic loan car within 2 hours). First honda I ever drove.
