First step is to get your color code. Check inside your driver side door. There is a sticker with the color match code - two letters normally.

On my 05 it states EXT PNT: TK (mineral grey)I would guess that the sticker didn't change in format from the 02.
With that code, you can find the color match on several different Ford color charts.

On my 05 "WB" refers to the wheelbase 114, If the 02 is anything like the 05, then the paint code should be next to the EXT PNT: letter code for color. None of the 2002 colors that I checked was WB or BRK.
