  1. In case anyone is interested I found it. You need to pull the A pillar off, starting from the top, it just popped off. The wiring terminates in a block inside there, red/white and black.
  2. Thanks both, I've also already had the stereo out and couldn't see any wiring that matched the colours of the microphone. I suppose the best option is to try and remove the side panel in the passenger footwell to see if I can see what comes down the A pillar, any tips for this appreciated!
  3. Just had it out today actually. I had my light out and couldn't see anything obvious. You don't happen to know how I get access to the wires that come out of the pillar do you? If I can locate these hopefully I can locate the red-white and black cable... Or even where I can locate wiring diagram...
  4. As per the title, on a 58 focus that has the place for the microphone built in to the light fitting. I can see a red/white and a black cable to attach the microphone it looks like it goes left (passenger side) and presumably it goes down the left pillar. Anyone know where I can locate it ? Thanks.
  5. OK, I shall put her in her place, then realise I'm being a nob and it's only some !Removed! windscreen wipers :) I clearly got out of bed the wrong side and took offence to being called a control freak [which is probably true].
  6. Morning all, I've had my focus for a couple of weeks and I'm having a problem with the rain sensing wipers, I keep turning them on but when I get back in the car they're turned off. I keep telling my wife to leave the stalk 1 notch up, I saw her using them this morning so reminded her again that she never need worry about windscreen wipers again, but it didn't wash (no pun intended), she told me to stop being a control freak and that she prefers to use them normally. Is there anything I can do about this? :)
  7. By the way, to save somebody else some pain here's some other links I've found: Bluetooth fitting guide: (thanks to DaveRushton) http://dc121.4shared.com/doc/858qrNBX/preview.html USB fitting to glovebox guide http://www.fordxr5turbo.com/forum/index.php?topic=12187.0 USB fitting to central console (armrest) guide: http://www.ford-focus.dk/Forum/e107_plugins/forum/forum_viewtopic.php?42141 With USB installed, updating stereo with ford software: http://www.ford-mobile-connectivity.com/downloadsUpdates To remove the stereo there's some guides on youtube, and to remove the glovebox see the second link above, and to remove the light fitting, pull out the clear plastic face to get to the bulbs, then use a screwdriver to release the metal clip and pull the light fitting out, then you can undo two screws to pull out the plastic surround which has the microphone fitting in (this is of course if you have the correct light fitting with space to fit a mic).
  8. Hi all, First post! I've just bought myself a 58 plate Titanium, I'm massively pleased with it, I made sure it had some of the gadgets I wanted such as cruise control, parking sensors etc. knowing that I could have a go at retrofitting the bluetooth myself (and for an added bonus get USB support! - fingers crossed). I know this is a heavily discussed subject, but please bear with me, I have done my research. So, I have the Sony single CD (no DAB) with MP3 support, and I've checked the firmware (press and hold 1 & 6 together then turn on stereo) and it's 05-03-03 so I think I'm also good for USB support. I've also got the correct light housing for the microphone and it looks like I have a wire stowed up there to clip the microphone into. I've taken the glovebox out and I'm pretty positive I don't have the wiring loom for the bluetooth/VC module so this is the only sticking point so far. I'm just about ready to email Ford Parts UK to get a quote and place an order and could do with a few pointers before I go ahead. Any help is hugely appreciated. I have the microphone wire, where does this come out? I had a 3 pin black and red socket taped to the existing AUX input cable, it had white/black, yellow/black, and black cables attached. Is this it? Once I've confirmed, how am I going to attach this up to the new wiring loom? I found an excellent guide to fitting USB in the glovebox with an original bezel to hold the USB here http://www.fordxr5tu...p?topic=12187.0 It says the the Nokia bluetooth module has been replaced with a Novero (1726157 Module (AU7T-19C112-AR) is this OK for my stereo and will it give me full USB/ Voice control support? Once I've got it all installed what do I need to ask Ford to program with the WDS, I've seen various things posted, but I get the feeling I'd turn up and they wouldn't know what I was on about? Can anyone tell me exactly what to ask for? I've gathered part numbers from all over the place, it looks like they get replaced with never versions, can anyone confirm the below? Bluetooth: 1726157 Module (AU7T-19C112-AR, 2010 Module Bluetooth BT/VC+USB Connect) 1353218 Module Bracket 1355147 Screw For Bracket x 2 1318965 Steering Control Stalk 1532666 Bluetooth Mic 1467152 Retrofit patch loom for universal fit. (there seems to be different versions of this for focus/fiesta??) USB: 1543691 USB cable 1543450 USB socket 1550778 Glovebox bezel Finally if anyone can recommend anywhere to get hold of some of the parts other than Ford Parts UK that would be appreciated, I've not had much luck sourcing stuff on ebay.
