  1. Mk3.5 Cruise Control Fitting

    Still not had a chance to get it fitted sorry! Will update when I can. Did you get anywhere Harni?
  2. Focus ST and ST-3 Differences ?

    And that new one is a diesel, cheaper to run.
  3. MK3.5 Subwoofer Fitting

    Wee update. Got a subwoofer on eBay for £9 as an experiment so will see how this goes. However spent about 20 minutes going over the wiring schematics... The Subwoofer has 4 wires. A DAB In, SW1 (-), SW2 (-), SW2 (+). From the subwoofer these go to an Inline Connector (assuming this is just a mid point connector in the car). From the Inline Connector the 4 wires go to a Premium Audio Connector at the rear of the Sync unit (think this is called the APIM/ACM) I need to figure out if firstly my car has the wiring installed or tucked away for the subwoofer, and if it has the premium audio connector and finally if the Sync unit is configured to output signals to the premium audio connector. To do that I'll need to take the Sync unit out (unless I find wiring tucked away) and even then I think my loom I made up would be better and less hassle as all my loom is effectively doing is splicing into the front speaker outputs without cutting into the main loom as I used a sound on top (SOT) lead. Does anyone know if I can get to the connectors at the rear of the Sync unit without ripping most of the centre console out.
  4. MK3.5 Subwoofer Fitting

    Cheers for the photos. Think I'll be keeping an eye out on eBay for something similar. Not sure if the wiring will be in situ for it however.
  5. MK3.5 Subwoofer Fitting

    I'll keep you posted... another one of my ongoing projects :)
  6. Mk3.5 Cruise Control Fitting

    Top man! Thank you! Will keep these saved for my next attempt.
  7. Mk3.5 Cruise Control Fitting

    Yes, It's different holes you need to put the screwdriver into, as the two shown on the original guide don't exist on the Mk3.5. I can see where I need to remove the airbag from, just not having any luck freeing it from the wheel itself.
  8. Mk3.5 Cruise Control Fitting

    Bit of an update: Received the missing wiring, and had a bit of spare time this morning. Went out to fit the wheel, was able to remove the trim around the wheel to get into the airbag release, but just can't get the airbag out. Dont want to put much force on it or break anything! Any ideas or a set of instructions? The Mk3.5 wheel & airbag is different from the Mk3.

    Received the steering wheel, no wiring sent out with it so waiting on the seller posting this out to me. Then onto getting the wheel fitted and programmed.
  10. Using foCCUS on a 2014 Ford Focus Titanium X

    I'm having issues with that type of cable, I bought one and it went faulty, got sent a replacement. Whilst awaiting on the replacement I bought another (so it would arrive quicker). The first replacement has now died on me and the one I bought is still working. My original replacement isn't recognised by Windows, FoCCCus or ForScan and the 2nd one I bought connects straight away and is recognised on all software. The one I bought has a 3 year "warranty" but wondering if anyone can recommend a more quality cable?
  11. Mk3.5 Cruise Control Fitting

    Many thanks :) i hope FoCCCus works. Is the ForScan procedure the same? Or do you have the guide for using ForScan to do it? Jamie
  12. Mk3.5 Cruise Control Fitting

    I've bought a steering wheel with CC attached, Will see how I get on!
  13. Mk3.5 HID Fitting

    I've given up haha, The adaptors I got don't fit the Mk3.5. Ordered a set of Philips bulbs recommended on Autoexpress... just hope they do a decent job of lighting the road up.
  14. Mk3.5 Cruise Control Fitting

    Hi all, Wondering if anyone has had any success on activating CC on the Mk3.5 Focus. I have seen a couple of steering wheels on eBay and have read the guide which shows the Mk3 procedure. Wondering if it's the same procedure? And if I would need extra wiring looms? Cheers for any help. Jamie
