  1. Looking for a reversing camera adaptor

    Yes, it is Hi gents, I have the same, genuine camera, all wired and working apart from the lines do not move, I don't have this wire connected and it looks like this is all I need to do to get it working, just wondering if you could tell me the location of the BCM so that when I get back home from working abroad I can get this last wire connected and finally working as oem.

  3. Retro fit heated seats,

    I fitted those to my Laguna coupe a few years back, they are ok, they don't heat up/get as warm as factory ones but they do make a difference in the cold winter months on leather seats. Pretty easy to fit if you have basic mechanical knowledge, you only need a good powered feed and earth supplied to under the seat area from the car, the rest of the wiring is in the kit and all can stay under the seat, I also mounted the switch on the seat, best place for it. Remember to disconnect your battery before you start and don't connect back up till after seats are fitted back in correctly and plugged in or you will have airbag fault codes that will need cleared.
  4. ST rear diffuser for mk 7.5 zetec s?

    there is a white one and a blue one on eBay just now, white one needs respray due to scuff marks, type in fiesta rear bumper and go for newly listed and you will see them. both put on 3rd September.
  5. FORscan activate reverse camera

    Thanks David, never thought to check for a fault code on forscan, that would have told me if activated correctly or not.
  6. FORscan activate reverse camera

    That's great David, I have programmed the car with forscan and the screen goes black when I put the car in reverse with the 4 option buttons showing up at the bottom of the screen, but it does not say camera disconnected as some people have noted after activating. Plenty of helpful info for me to work with when I get home from work abroad.
  7. FORscan activate reverse camera

    Hi David, I have the lot from the tailgate of the car with the reverse camera, handle, camera etc, all painted to my cars colour and ready to fit, I also managed to get a small piece of the wiring loom just after the plug on the camera and also a small piece of the wiring green plug at the back of the satnav screen, but on the green plug there are 4 or 5 wires with the protection wrapped round them but on the plug from the camera only 2 wires with the protection so I don't know what wires go where, on the camera side I am sure I could work that out but on the green connector at the back of the satnav screen is where I am totally lost with what goes where.
  8. FORscan activate reverse camera

    Hi David, I have the genuine camera ready to fit to my 2016 fiesta Titanium with satnav (that I retrofitted, had the same issue with the kms etc, now all good) if possible could you send me the part numbers for the correct cables that you fitted to make this work and any other info you can give me on doing this, I have a link to an aftermarket cable that will plug into the back of the satnav screen and allow me to use an aftermarket camera, but as I have a genuine camera and the tailgate complete panel too with handle etc I would rather keep it all original as you have done. Thanks in advance, Duncan
  9. Sat nav

    My origional was a dab but sony one, that's why I have a satnav facia available as I bought the whole lot on eBay and then found a sony satnav facial panel and changed it over, it sounds worse than it is, happy to help you out with fitting, it's honestly not that bad to do. There was a screen for sale on eBay but you would still need the top cover panel too. (And a facia panel obviously)
  10. Sat nav

    I have just done it, the guide from mikeyjbartlett was great for the wiring. You need a screen with the sd card slot which is the satnav screen, a new top cover as the screen sits further forward, a gps aerial, I bought one on eBay for about a fiver, a fakra lead extension to make the traffic updates work, an sd map card and a new satnav facial panel (I have one of these for sale) as in the guide, after fitting you will need to tell the car it now has satnav or it will work but be stuck on kms, the lead cost me £20 from eBay and forscan is free.
  11. Swap UK Stereo Infotainment System with US

    Would be interested in seeing how this goes, possibly a mix of USA fiesta parts and U.K. Focus parts could make this happen?
  12. would you buy a CAT D fiesta

    I just bought one, 16 plate with 500 miles on the clock, the main thing if possible is to get before and after pics so you can see what was damaged and how good it was repaired, I have been in the motor trade for almost 30 years though so a cat d does not worry me at all, as others have said, resale value will be lower but it's a great way to get an almost new car for 4 year old car money, especially if you intend to keep it for at least 5 years.
  13. Retrofitting A New Radio/display System Mk3

    Hi Murdo, I'm in the middle of doing this to my 2016 fiesta, if it goes well I will let you know.
  14. Sorry to hear about the break in bud, a lot of nasty people out there. when you fitted your satnav screen did you have to make any wire modifications? I am in the process of doing mine on a 2016 fiesta.
  15. Retrofitted Ford sat nav from 2014 to 2011

    Hi Andy, would love a copy of the heated seat wiring diagram you used, I am fitting to my 2016 that did not have heated seats.
