Radio Fitting In A Mk6 (Double Din)
Posted 15 August 2010 - 10:47 AM
Anyway after taking it out, Halfords put it back in which triggered the lock on the radio, now I have no working radio (thanks Halfords) and I've also discovered that if the serial number begins with "V", it is only unlock-able by Ford, not happy :-(
Here are some pics

So my question is, what parts do I need to fit a new single DIN radio?
(e.g. cables, fascia, model numbers for these parts so I can buy online)
Thanks in advance

I don't have that much knowledge on the stereos, but I believe you will have to buy a "cage" that will support the single din radio that will leave you with a storage bit either below or above the radio.

I can help you here as I recently removed my double din sat nav from my 6.5 and when I installed it months ago it gave me so much sh*t.
First if you want a single din stereo then you will need to buy even more parts as mine was double but il try and explain.
A cage, facia adapter and fittings, look on eBay usually the whole set costs around £40.
A iso adapter, the one in the link above is correct unless you have steering wheel controls, however I do have one for sale that was only used like twice before realising I needed a newer one with steering wheel controls.
You will also need to modify your car slightly, the way I don't it was attach a metal plate to the screw at the bottom of the stereo compartment which then held the cage in, however that was a double din so as for a single I'm not 100% sure but I'm sure if you buy the kit specific to the fiesta something will come in the box of tricks.
You will also need an aerial adapter, eBay that its much cheaper then halfrauds it's an iso to ford oem one although Many companies use them.
As I said i have a steering wheel control and non steering wheel control wiring harness if you want it il Sell it very cheap as just want the stuff out my way. I will say though the steering wheel one depends on the stereo, tell me if you have steering controls and il tell you if it will work.
Hope that helps, if you have any questions just ask, although I wont reply until this evening as i have a database exam and uni.
