The number plate light on the Ford Focus Wagon is mandatory to display the rear number plate clearly. The bulb is held in an assembly above the number plate and is turned on when the running lights are activated. Check the number plate light frequently, whenever you check the other lights in the rear, and replace it immediately if it burns out. Changing the bulb will take just a few minutes.
