I have a Ford Focus Mk2 and I wanted to install the mounting points for isofix car seats. I have the needed part. Where can I find installation instructions?
It does sound fairly typical that these things come with no instructions. Your car manual should have information on isofix, but failing that, I found the following information on a post by Phil on www.focusowners.com - which seems like a forum you would want to look at for Ford Focus specifics. Have a read of the full post over there.
Key info from the post is:
(my note - you will easily be able to identify the isofix mounting holes once the seat is up. The rubber plugs come out with the use of a screwdriver)
I wanted to fit the brackets on the smaller seat, behind the drivers side (in a UK, right hand drive car).
For my late 2005 model Focus, Mark II I think, UK registration "XX54" there was nothing on the door side hinge to lever up with a screwdriver (as per many instructions out there), instead the back seats came out according to these instructions on the Focus Fanatics forum.
The rubber/plastic bungs for the threaded bolt holes are then obvious under the line of the rear seat back, and comparatively easy to remove with a screwdriver. The bolts for the Isofix bracket can then be fitted with a Torx bolt (T50):
For fitting ISOFIX (LATCH in the US) to a European Mk2 Ford Focus (2005-2010) my steps were as follows. Note that this is for a UK-registered vehicle with the single-split rear seat behind the driver.
No removal of seat belts or any other bolts should be required.
Disclaimer - this is my DIY attempt, I'm not a qualified mechanic so please only carry the work out if you're confident in your own abilities.

Further to the above steps, I created this video/slideshow to show these steps involved in fitting the Ford ISOFIX bracket.
