Thank you so much for your help! I'm an aspiring car DIY enthusiast and I hope perhaps one day to become a a moderator for the Mechanic stack exchange moderator. Aside from taking apart the gearshift, I've the experience for replacing a car's AC evaporator, dryer and the orphus tube. But I'd love to learn how to do research like you did, either it was finding the illustrations on the web or from a repair manual. Because your illustrations are spot on. Thanks again for your help!

thank you for your input! Move more comments lin... The traction control switch from the above diagram seems to match what I have: Pin 1 and 2 are plated. Pin 3, 4, 5, 6 are empty. Pin 7 and 8 are plated. Does that mean my vehicle might not have the Traction Control feature, and the switch was unplugged from the beginning? Thank you!

@Movemorecommentslinktotop I've updated the picture in accordance to the community wiki. The 8th number on the VIN of the vehicle is 3. And you are correct, the vehicle is a US model.

@Paulster2 thank you very much for your input, Paul! The big arrow shows where the harness should go (from a harness to the female connector behind the gear shift). The arrow with a question mark points at a harness which I don't know where to plug into... I've looked very carefully at the shifter assembly, but I could only find one female connector (which is pointed by the big arrow)

comment 2004 Ford Focus engine cover would not budge after all screws are removed
you are right, there are 3 arrows indicated by the manual on the bottom row. Two hole from 2 bolts on the left and right, and in the middle above the metal plate there's a thing (it looks like this feeneyinc.com/Hanger_Bolt_Tool.jpg but not as tall, sorry idk what they're called) I've removed that as well. are you recommending I knock on the engine cover a little more to see if it'd budge (this time maybe with a mallet)?

i've unscrewed the 4 bolts connected to the cover of the timing belt. The metal plate doesn't seem like it's removable, i think it only covers part of the engine. I think I'll be fine if I yank it in the other direction (up) from the point of view of the close-up picture??
