I did this very thing with my EB2 about a month ago. All the wiring was in place so it was basically a straight swap wiring wise. But I did have other issues that you should know about.
First, My car had smartlock, the only dash I could get didn't have smartlock but was still an EB2 dash. The smartlock light is only a bit of plastic with a small electrical board inside it, with a clear LED on the end. If you are like me and still want the Smartlock light you need to do the following. Remove the 3 nuts on the right side of the dash (looking at it from behind), this will allow you to lift the backing up enough to pull the smartlock LED out. I found that with the nuts that 2 came off fine, and 1 went back on fine too. The other I somehow stuffed the thread and I snapped the third one straight off. After snapping the third one off I decided taking the 8-9 nuts off the fairmont dash might be a little too risky. My solution was to drill a hole where the LED was suppost to go, then use a file till it was square and the plastic that hold the board/LED was a tight fit. Then I just cut the Smartlock red plastic (you will know what I mean when you see it) off the old dash and cut the same area out of the new, switched them over, and used some sticky tape on the back so it couldn't be seen. Now you have a smartlock lamp where there was none before :)
Second, this is a list of all the parts that I needed to get everything working of the fairmont dash.
Fairmont dash (derrrrr), make sure you get one that suits your engine!
- Overflow tank, $82 new from Ford, must have a hole for the coolant sensor. pn: EDC-8A084-B
- Coolant sensor switch, $51 new from Ford, goes in the hole in overflow tank pn: EA-10k888-A
- Overflow tank Cap, $9 new from Ford, holds sensor in. pn: EC-10K926-A
- Oil pressure sensor, $70 new from Ford, replaces switch. pn: ASW-114
I think those part numbers are right.
You can also get a Low Washer fluid bottle and sensor, but I couldn't be bothered. Make sure you get the screw in plug (I call it Overflow tank Cap) that holds the coolant sensor in!! I went to the local Ford dealer and they told me it didn't exist, I drove the car and once it was hot it blew the sensor out along with all the coolant in the overflow tank. Went back, and they found it
Other thing is changing the oil sensor is a pain in the ass. I had to take it down to my local mechanic to get it done as you need to take the oil filter out to get to the sensor and it is still difficult to remove. If you are on your back under the car, you need to be extremely flexable to do that!
Edit: this is a must read!!
It tells you everything else you need to know.
