  1. The global open/close function only works on the facelift Fiesta with 4 electric windows. Retrofitting on a prefacelift is not possible. You need to change the window motors, wiring and BCM.
  2. Good to hear that you finally got it working! Hopefully this will help you in the right direction: The antenna itself is located inside the rear bumper, behind the reflector. It's hard to explain without a picture.
  3. My dealer connected the IDS computer, changed the cruise control setting to "With cruise control" in the asbuild file and the cruise control works fine. I replaced the steering wheel with one that came with the cruise control buttons. It took no more then one hour to install it all.
  4. All I know is that the EU spec Fiesta does not come with foot well ambient lighting. Only above the glove box, cup holders, front door cards and next to the front interior lights.
  5. The undertray is not something that is standard on diesels or patrols, some markets get them as standard, other markets don't. I know that some Scandinavian country's get the undertray as standard. In the German market, a Focus does come with an undertray, but the Fiesta don't. Over here in The Netherlands, the fiesta and Focus do not come with an undertray. Some luxury models get them as standard, because it reduces the road noise a bit. The undertray of a MK7 and MK7,5 are the same. I fitted one to my old MK7 (1,25 85hp) and my current MK7,5 (1.0 125hp). Never had any problems with it.
  6. The projector headlamps have a horizontal cut-off line. When you lower the beam with the switch on your dashboard, it should be fine. At least, that's what I did when I visited the UK last month. No upcoming traffic flashed there high beam, so they were not dazzled by my headlamps. If you've got the reflector headlamps, you should buy the eurolite stickers. Because those headlamps do not have such a fine cut-off line and are more likely to dazzle upcoming traffic. No police officer (at least in the Netherlands) will stop UK cars if there are no stickers on there headlamps. As long as the aren't blinding any upcoming traffic. If you're still not sure, just buy the eurolites. They are not that expensive. (Off-topic: I spotted a few posts back that you've had bad DAB reception. Since you are visiting the Netherlands, use 11C and 12C for the nationwide public and commercial DAB+. Enjoy your time in Europe)
  7. You mean this one? FINIS: 1794581 This part fits both Fiesta MK7 and MK7,5 (2008-2015)
  8. There is no way you can just 'upload' the navigation on a non-navi radio. You need a different screen (one with a sd-card holder), different facia (with navi buttons), different dashboard trim on top of the screen, a GPS antenna (behind your rear view mirror) and additional cables. When all that is in place, you need to activate it with an IDS computer. Total cost, a lot...
  9. There is a guy on the Dutch Focus Forum that managed to get it working. He used an UCDS and IDS adapter. I'm still waiting on his reply how he actually did it, but it is possible to retrofit DAB after all. And the module I mean is the FCDIM (screen).
  10. Does this change of frequency means that England has DAB+ now? I'm asking because I visit England 4/5 times a year, and I've noticed a huge difference between the Dutch DAB+ network and the UK's DAB network. I would be great if the UK has the new DAB+ with better reception right now.
  11. - Sound quality is much better - Bluetooth compatible (if you install a separate Bluetooth module) - The latest Sony models support USB/AD2P (if you install a separate compatible Bluetooth/USB module) - Some models have a cd-changer - Some models support DAB (NOT DAB+, this won't be a problem for the UK) - MP3 disc support - different looks
  12. Strange thinking of Ford, because the UK has a colder climate than The Netherlands. Weird that we do get a standard PTC heater on all the Ecoboost models. Retrofitting should be possible, but it's a lot of work. You need to check if your heater box is compatible with a PTC heater. If it is, you need to remove you dashboard to place the heater element. After that you have to install the complete wiring loom and activate it with an IDS computer. A lot of work :)
  13. Later versions of the Titanium (X) are fitted with a PTC heater. Because the 1L ecoboost is an efficient motor, it produces less heat. When I hooked up an OBD cable with Forscan, there was a DTC fault that said there was a problem with the PTC heater. I turned out to be a faulty relay underneath the LHD headlight. When I replaced the relay the DTC was not there anymore and the interior heated up a lot faster. You could buy an OBD cable and download forscan, or ask you're dealer to check for DTC's.
  14. I'm planning to retrofit the rear view camera on my wife's MK7 (2008-2012). The screen of this camera is integrated in the rear view mirror. I'm hoping that someone could tell me if this mirror has also the auto-dimming function. Otherwise I have to choose between an auto-dimming mirror or the rear view camera.
  15. Google is sometimes your best friend: https://www.google.nl/search?q=ford+fiesta+horn&biw=1680&bih=925&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0CAYQ_AUoAWoVChMI4LWHuIbeyAIVw75yCh3xqQoB#imgrc=XHgT1Lm51e0i-M%3A
