  1. I finally got LED headlight installed, easy to do, as shown in the figure below. Ok, I finally got them installed. Pretty easy to do, easy for a 2015 that is since you have to install bulbs from underneath through the fenders. They're pretty bright too, although I haven't seen them at night yet. I'll get some night shots tonight. That last pic is LEDs on the right, factory on the left. I already had LED bulbs in my fogs.
  2. LED interior lights

    I was thinking of getting this (the 501 RGB LED) for my interior light of my MK7 fiesta (just the center one that comes on with the doors) but I don't think it will fit, I know that the large LEDs don't fit in the center light and this one looks similar in size, can anyone shed any light on this?
  3. Hey guys and gals, I am looking to replace the standard halogen bulbs and maybe plastic coverings with led lights and stylish ones. Any ideas? Tips? and products? Thank you in advance, Dave
  4. Phil's Build Thread

    I never usually do this but I've never really had a car worth posting about before. I've recently become the proud owner of a 1.6 TDCI Ti Nav in Panther Black and I love it! I still want to bugger about with it and I want to put together a list of mods I want to do and stuff I want to buy (more for keeping track myself than anything else) and I'd appreciate any opinions, recommendations and links people may have. Firstly, there are some givens. Mine has the auto mirror and rain sensors but the upper section of the cover is missing. Didn't spot this before buying due to the way I was sat but I have to say it's niggling! If anyone has the part number I'd appreciate it! I also want to get some decent mats, preferably rubber but obviously fitted for the studs in the floor. Also a boot liner (hatchback). I'll be replacing as many bulbs as possible with LEDs, though I have read a lot of reliability issues with some sidelights. After those, the rest are in the 'maybe' pile I quite like the idea of wind deflectors but don't want the Halfords-Nailed-On look. Opinions? Illuminated gear knob would be nice (working on that one), maybe even the scuff plates... Bonnet lifters Reverse camera Front parking sensors (can be retrofit?) Some nice looking pedal covers DRLs. Preferably oem but price would probably mean 'fang' style Colour changing ambients. Following another thread I think this is possible Front window tint 18" alloys to replace my 16's Front bumper lip. Remap. New front and rear badges ( rear is going white round the edge and front has one hell of a stone chip - I read somewhere dealers replace these for free on less than 10 year old cars?) topped with gel coats. LED reflectors. I've seen this done with twin intensities for side and brake lights. Dunno how much of this will ever get done but it's nice to have a list! I also have a couple of questions if anyone can answer: Can the SYNC voice control be programmed to activate my phone directly? Or can the command choices for SYNC 1 be improved with a software update? Is there a way to re-calibrate the trip computer? My instant mpg is nearly always 99.9 when cruising at any speed and only drops when accelerating hard. £20 of fuel apparently buys me 700+ miles... What is the button nearest the driver for below the air con controls? I'll put up a pic if needed but the one I mean is next to the disable start/stop button in the same bank as the front and rear window heaters. It's blank in mine but I'd be interested to know if I can put whatever it is in! Heated seat maybe?
  5. Footwell LED lights

    I am considering upgrading the footwell lights in my MK 7 Zetec to red LED ones to match the ambient lighting. I have read that the LED will glow slightly when they are supposed to be off because of current still in the wire, I am wondering how noticeable this will be, I am thinking it would only be noticeable if I replace the interior roof lights too? Does anyone have any suggestions for good led footwell lights?
  6. Boot lighting

    I am considering putting another light (similar location on the left side of my boot (inside) and was just wondering if anyone else has done this. My plan is to remove the left piece of trim which holds the parcel shelf up and make a hole at the exact same position as on the right trim. I think maybe run a splice into the earth and power of the right light to supply what's needed for the left light. Basically wondering since I switched the bulb to led (lower power) will I need to upgrade the fuse or add a relay? If anyone does have a better method please post below, I'm bored and just need things to do :-) My car is a mk6.5 (56 reg) 1.25 petrol fiesta STyle.
  7. Okay, so looking for your opinions on the pros and cons of each option, what's good, bad and ultimately...what's best. I've owned my mk7.5 fiesta 5 door Titanium since new...now three years old and I'm NOT about to spend another winter driving around with the crap bulbs that Ford seem to enjoy fitting as standard equipment! I'm looking to change all the bulbs out, front and rear, (and interior lights) in time for the winter months that will no doubt he here before we know it...so what should I go for? I'm really disappointed with the factory fitted bulbs on the headlights, but would quite like a more modern look so am considering HID's for main beam and Osram Nghtbreaker Laser or Unlimited for high beam. also thinking of using LED's for indicators, etc, but no idea how to tell a good LED from a lesser made product. only bulbs I'm thinking of leaving standard are front and rear fogs as I think I've used them probably twice since new and so really can't recall how effective they were, but given they're so rarely used I don't see the point in changing them out, unless they blow of course! Lastly I'm also trying to pluck the courage up to remove the headlamp units, bake them, open them up and go for the "black" look...any advice/suggestions on this would also be most welcome. 👍🏻 be interesting to read your thoughts...
  8. Hi all . I know this has probably been asked loads of times but .I have a 2011 mk3 new shape focus zetec which has the rear windows factory tinted ,but the light from the reversing lamps is very poor and thank god for the parking sensors. So i`m wanting to upgrade the bulbs that will give a brighter light at night . So i guess i go for LED`s ?? or is there something else out there. Thanks for the groups help .
  9. I'm picking up my 2014 zetec s fiesta on saturday, and i've been looking all over for little mods that make a big difference. Seen a few lads with white led headlight bulbs and it looks so clean. was hoping someone would be able to help me by providing a link to where i can get them and also how to fit them because headlights are something i've never messed about with. Also so if you've got any suggestions on appearance mods for me to do i'd love to hear them
  10. Hello guys back again with another question... I have just went to replace the rear number plate lights with white led lights, but once I have gone to turn them on they do not seem to want to light up... tried turning them around and still nothing. one thing I have noticed is when I turn my lights on and open my door the warning sound "ding ding" doesn't happen anymore? can anyone shed some light on how I might fix this? I thought it might be a fuse but I can't find what fuse it would be anywhere on the web so haven't a scooby doo where that is. thanks a lot guys :)
  11. I just got a 2016 Fiesta Zetec S, I've currently got blue lights on radio, steering wheel, speed-o-meter arrows, buttons etc and I'm wanting to change it to purple, any recommendations on where to get them and how/where to install as well
  12. Mk3 LED indicators

    Has anyone done the LED front and rear indicators with external ballast/resistors? Can I have a soundoff of which bulbs and resistor values you used and where you got them from please? Ta muchly
  13. Dashboard lights

    Hey, hope this is the right section. I'm currently wanting to do some simple mods to my ford fiesta mk6.5 (56 reg) 1.25 style. I was wondering if anyone has a guide for changing the light color behind the Speedo. I have read elsewhere that it's pretty simple to do but I am a little confused since they are old posts and images have expired. Thanks in advance :-)
  14. Hello people. I own a 2009 black focus in Greece. Lately i am trying to make my focus looking more beautiful that already is. So i have device to install an aftermarket led kit into my h7 low beam lights. As always i search for everything that I need before making a step. So my question is except from the led kit. Will they fit directly into my sockets or do i need any holder brackets. And dust covers? I wanted to fit xenon kits but i am afraid of the heat that xenon produces. So any advice will be very thankful. Thank you.
  15. Mk3 Bulb List and LEDs

    Sorry if this has already been done... I know Danger's excellent sticky for bulbs (found HERE) has a huge list of bulbs types for Mk1 through to 2.5, but doesn't seem to cover Mk3 (at least, not in the first post and there's over 200 more posts to look through to check for each bulb!) So I thought I'd post up bulb types for the Mk3 (and 3.5 if different) but also a sort of guide for those looking to replace with LEDs (as I hope to do). As I swap more on my car and hopefully as others post info I'll add it to the first post so there's a quick reference guide up for folk. I want to add other helpful information too, like whether the led's are simply plug and play or need some modifications, the wattage of the original (so people can judge what LEDs to buy for comparative brightness) and maybe people's recommendations or things to watch for. Please feel free to correct anything I post if wrong. I'll start the ball rolling with the list from my handbook though I think it has a few missing and I may need some clarification on which bulbs it actually refers to! If anyone wants to share a guide I'll happily link to it Bulb - Fitting - Wattage - Plug & Play / Mod Req'd Mk3 Front & Rear Indicator - 581 (PY21W) - 21w - Mod == Separate resistors required in parallel to the bulbs to prevent Hyper-Flashing. Possible heat issue as resistors can get hot. Headlamp Main Beam - H1 - 55w - ?? == Have seen some conversion kits, but I think LEDs aren't road legal in UK for main and dipped beam? I think I'll stick with some white halogens. Headlamp Dipped Beam - H7 - 55w - ?? == Handbook specifically states to replace with the same rating just for these bulbs. Cornering Lamp - H1 - 55w - ?? == Thought these were the fogs but... Front Fog Lamp - H11 - 55w - P&P == Not sure if Canbus friendlies are needed Side Lamp - 501 (W5W) - 5w - P&P == Canbus friendly required. Some people have had flickering issues with cheaper LEDs Side Repeater - 501 (WY5W) - 5w - P&P == Canbus friendly required to prevent dash errors, but no hyperflashing as long as front and rear indicators are stock or correctly resisted. Stephen (MadMole) has a great guide to removing the wing mirror panels HERE which gives access to these and puddle lights if fitted. Approach Lamp - 501 (W5W) - 5w - P&P == Think this means mirror puddle lamps in Ti and Ti-X. Limited space to fit the bulbs in so I wouldn't get too large a replacement. Stephen (MadMole)'s guide HERE. Brake and Tail Lamp - 380 (P21/5W) - 21w/5w - ?? == Anyone here done this? Fo Fans has a guide but most of the pictures are missing. Tail Lamp - 501 (W5W) - 5w - ?? == Assuming this is rear numberplate lights? If so, my Ti seems to have LED's already. Are these simply Plug & Play from 'cands? Rear Fog Lamp - 382 (P21W) - 21w - ?? == Anyone swapped these? Reversing Lamp - 955 (W16W) - 16w - P&P == Is the handbook correct?? They're push fit wedges?! I know a lot of folk have swapped these for Cree LED's with great success. Luggage Compartment Lamp - 501 (W5W) - 5w - P&P == My Ti has one either side, not sure if only one in Zetecs. There's no reflector in these lights so a COB LED (panel type) or a bulb with lots of SMD's on the sides will throw the light out better. Remove the lens with a small screwdriver on the short side nearest the back seats. I found it helpful to drop the back seats to get at them. That's it for the handbook. Glovebox Lamp - 501 (W5W) - 5w - P&P == This looks like a sod to get to, probably need to remove the glovebox to do. No reflector here either so another COB is a good idea. I'll post a guide when I get around to it =] Dome Lights - ?? - ?? - ?? == Already LED's in mine so need some info here. Are there also rear domes in Zetecs? Also, does anyone know if there are bulbs behind the door reflectors? I'm sure mine lit up at one point with the ambient lights but they don't seem to now...
  16. Hi All I have 2012 UK Focus MK3 Titanium and I'm looking in to what is required to change the interior Ambient Lighting to the multi-colour option you get with the Titanium X. At present I do have the ambient lighting but it's the fixed red colours. I have foot well, front door storage and handle area along with the cup holder area lighting up in red. I've checked the wiring to the foot well and there is a cable with 3 wires going in to the current red LED, but the LED board only makes use of two of them. So I was wondering if it's the same wiring? I am aware I will need to purchase the new multi colour LED's from Ford and also the Titanium X control module near the interior sunglasses holder to the attached image (I just have a blanking plate in mine) Is there anything else required? Has anyone tried? Thank you kindly. J
  17. Upgrade to ST headlights

    Hi, So i want to upgrade my standard h15 headlights to the led drl you see on the ST. I have been looking around and found out that it is not that simple and that the led drls do not work as they are supposed to. Something about when drls are on, they are dim, then when headlights or sidelights are on they are bright, has anyone been able to sort this out and how have you done it?
  18. Hi I'm new to this, just wondering what LED bulbs I need for the interior lights and the boot lights for my fiesta zetec s mk7. Thank you!
  19. I have a 2014 plate Ford Fiesta and have recently changed the headlights from daytime running to the fancier led daytime running lights. All the bulbs seem to be working fine (they light up) but just noticed today when driving in the dark when my dipped beam on one side seems to travel a bit further than the other. So if you imagine one side the light travels 2 car lengths in front (not accurate just easy to explain) where as the other side only reaches one cars length. Is it a simple replacement bulb or is there more to it than that? Or am I missing something else? Thanks Tom
  20. Evening all, I've been wanting to add some interior LED's to my beloved MK7 for a while now, but am stuck on what to get. I am looking for some interior LED's that have multiple colour options. Any suggestions? Karlos
  21. Fitting led bulbs?

    I've recently ordered and installed nighteye H7 led headlight bulbs. im not sure if I should have but I had to slice a hole in the dust cover to get the heat sink to fit? Thoughts? and another thing, I've just taken the car out for a spin tonight, it doesn't seem that the beam pattern on the lights line up? and they don't seem to be overly bright? Would anyone like to put their ten pence in on this? Thanks! :)
  22. Got a 62 MK7 Fiesta, and like many people am frustrated by the boot light simply not being any use if I'm rummaging around trying to find something, Ideally, I'd like a brighter bulb that just slots in however an LED strip would also work, however I'm only looking for a 'Plug and Play' solution, I'm no good with soldering wires or taking apart wiring looms! I've seen this: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/LED-car-boot-interior-engine-bay-lighting-kit-red-blue-green-orange-purple-white-/201476386311?#ht_1449wt_648 which is the kind of thing I'm looking for. Anyone have any experience using these / advice for a better type that makes it easier to install? Cheers
  23. Hello everyone, I've had a look around on forums already but couldn't find much information regarding H15 LED bulbs to use in the facelift Mk7 fiesta. I know that the H15 is the DRL and Main beam integrated into the same bulb. What I'm essentially after if that crisp white look LEDs can provide but didn't know if LED or 'ice white' halogen bulbs were a better idea? I had read one large thread but its a few years old and so the product markets changed. Didn't know if anyone had some advice or a better direction to head in. Thanks in advance, Sam
  24. LED interior lights

    Hi, I'm looking at purchasing these LED's to use for footwell lighting, Dome and map lighting: http://m.ebay.co.uk/itm/4-X-T10-CAR-BULBS-LED-ERROR-FREE-CANBUS-24-CHIPS-COB-W5W-501-194-SIDE-LIGHT-/262175045340 just wondering if anybody has an reasons why I shouldn't get them? They are cheap and I'm worried about overheating etc. Or on the other hand can anyone recommend them? Thanks
  25. Anyone have any issues with their mk7.5 fiesta and LED bulbs? Had my side lights and number plate LED's go because of what I can only assume is condensation/moisture in the sealed units. Any ideas how to get round it? Considered new LED full units rather than bulbs for the number plate lights but it's getting to the point of just sticking all the halogen bulbs back in...
