[quote name='1800tdci' post='40356' date='Aug 29 2009, 11:25 PM']You lucky kid, my mum havent long bought me a 1.8 tdci for when i turn 17, but i got the mk2. But they go like stink
Because i've spent a grand on ice so far i know a bit about wiring that car now
Get the glove box out, theres a few torque screws under caps there, and at the back there should be holes in which you can run the wire through. But what i would do is run the wire underneath the stereo, just in front of the gear stick in that little hole where you put your phone, so your ipod is out of the way, funny enough i have a classic too(talk about dajavu), but then you'll need two sets of ford stereo keys to get the stereo out, which you can get on ebay for about a pound a piece. Then undo a couple of torque screws to get the hole fascia off, then jus run the wire through and just repeat it in reverse order and bobs your uncle. If you still want it on the windscreen though you'll probably end up having to drill through things(and you dont really want that).
But because i've got a amp, sub, extra speakers, a dvd and monitors to wire up, i wanted a better stereo so i got a sony xplod stereo which is made for ipod, so i run the connector in front of the gear stick, like i advised you. It is out of the way there and much tidier than having a wire coming through one of the vents. If you want any more help or any pictures to show you what i mean, dont be afraid to ask. I've done just about anything imaginable to my car so far, so anything, and i mean anything, you need help with or want to see what i've done to give you ideas, just ask
BTW, you got petrol or diesel?
Hope this helps
thanks for your info mate that will help me alot
i will do that . . yep kinda lucky but its a disability car so i get put on the insurance for free
i only have to pay £450 excess cant wait to drive it . . i have got the petrol mate you on diesel ?
how is it for you ? like the acceleration and speed cuz my mum doesnt really push the car to see what it can do . . thats is weird lol but the classic is best with 80gb to fill or more becasue there's no cd's then lying around and taking up space
