      Posting in General Chat thread.   11/11/2017

      it has been noted that too many Members are posting messages in the General Chat area instead of the correct Forums. Any messages posted in the General Chat area that are not General Chat will be deleted without warning and offenders may recieve warning points if repeated instances are seen from that Member. There are plenty of different Club areas that encompass 99% of Ford related posts, please select and use the correct one. If anyone is not sure of which area to post something then feel free to P/M myself or other Senior Staff for guidance. The Moderating Staff are having to spend far too much time chasing this problem instead of maintaining the other areas of the forum.

  1. I've been getting used to my new Fiesta over the last few days and can't understand why Ford located the USB / Aux connector by the gear stick. Don't you find that all your cables get in the way and make it look really untidy? Well after doing a bit of searching I discovered that the new sync module has 2 USB connectors on the back so the spare, with a connecting cable can be used else where. With this information I decided to have a look. So far I have located the module and inserted a mini USB cable in the spare socket, it isn't tested yet as I'm at work without all the required connectors. To start you need to locate the sync module, this is found in the passenger side foot well under the glove box. It is covered by a Grey fibre type thing held in by 2 black plastic push in rivets, these can be hard to remove as the center needs to be pulled before the whole thing can be pulled out. Once you've removed the cover you will see the module attached to it. On the back will be an empty mini USB socket where the second cable can be attached. once attached you can then feed the cable where ever you like (in the glove box) hidden out of the way. If you need access to the glove box all you need to do is open it and squeeze the sides in wards and pull down. The whole thing shouldn't take more than 30 minutes to complete. As yet I haven't tested it but understand that when installed and you press the AUX button it will give a choice of USB 1 (the main one below the gear stick) or USB 2. If all goes well and you want to give it a try then you will need the following. 1. A tool to remove the plastic rivets without braking them. 2. A mini USB to FEMALE USB connector (size of your choice) or a mini USB cable with a FEMALE to FEMALE connector. 3. USB stick / HDD / iPod etc. 4. A little bit of patents. I'll update you guys later when I get home of the outcome and add more pictures. N.B. Pictures have been sourced from the Internet and are not my own.
