    Fiesta Zetec Mk7 (WT)
  1. Had a similar problem in my son's car where someone removed the USB whilst it was playing. All I did was put in my USB stick from my car and it fixed it.
  2. I paired my wife’s Omnia 7 with no issues at all, although I only did a quick check through the phonebook and a quick call.
  3. Didn’t go for the inside monitor, just the beeper since all my previous cars have had this and its being sufficient. The ambient lights I am going for are parts of the “Aesthetic Lighting Package” which is on the Zetec/Titanium. Here in Oz they decided the sell the latest Zetec with only the footwell lights so I am going to purchase the other components from European Parts. Going to be a challenge since I know the wiring for these have been removed.
  4. Very happy with them so far. Now for the next job, ambient lighting.
  5. Not the best, it was getting dark by the time I got home. Sensors purchased from Ebay.
  6. Just wanted to thank Lez for the Ford instructions. Using the templates to position the sensors was a big bonus. Took a little longer than I thought, just over 3 hours. I had to remove the rear bumper completely since there was a large piece of polystyrene behind the bumper that prevented me getting access.
  7. Thats what I thought until I approached Ford for the chrome strip for the boot and was told it definitely does not fit because they had already broken the brackets whilst trying to do fix the strip to someone else's WT. I guess the only way to find out is order the parts and go for it.
  8. Hi to all from Oz. I have a question regarding retrofitting a number of components to my new Fiesta Zetec that I have had for about a week. This is the latest model (WT) that is manufactured in Thailand. About six months ago my son got a new Fiesta Zetec (WS) that was manufactured in Germany. I was very impressed with my sons car which is why I decided to downsize and purchase the Fiesta more or less sight unseen. I did know about some of the differences between the WS and WT models before the purchase but since taking ownership I have discovered quite a lot more. Different alloy wheels , same size (Known) Different size tyres (cant remember the exact dimensions) Different suspension, I believe the WT is more 'sportier' Quieter engine on WT Different front spoiler design with chrome sections on WT (Known) No chrome strip on boot on the WT Different headlights No heated exterior mirrors on WT No spare wheel on the WT (Known) Extra carpet on the back of the rear seats on the WT (Known) Extra support on front seats on the WT No ambient lighting on the WT Above glove box, dome light and little cubby hole. Hard dash on the WT and different colours to the WS (Both cars are black with a burgundy colour for the WS and grey on the WT) Storage draw on the front passenger seat on the WT Only single flip key fob supplied with the WT with a spare key whereas the WS came with two flip key fobs. Couple of extra net style storage pockets on the WT No deadlocks on the WT No door scuff plate inserts on the WT WS has a Tilt/slide steering wheel where the WT only has tilt adjustment Now most of these differences are OK but I do want to see if I can retrofit the ones in bold, which I know I can get some from European Parts. The question I have is has anyone tried to fit the ambient lighting, especially wired into the GEM? Also has anyone fitted the scuff plates for a 5 door? Also I should emphasize that this car is build in Thailand and there does seem to be some changes that make retrofitting difficult if not impossible, i.e. the boot chrome strip cannot be retrofitted. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
