Hi all

I have a couple of questions that I hope you could answer, firstly does anyone know the actual size of the rear speakers? I have searched on numerous ford forums and yet they seem to say that they are 17 cm's. I recently bought some 17 cm's pioneer speakers and they were no where near big enough.

Secondly my ZS doesn't have power folding mirrors, is it possible to fit these as I have found some on ebay? Would I need re-wiring etc?

Thanks

They are 17cm, but the original units have a custom moulded surround that's about 1" deep with 3 mounting points and a unique plug to connect to the wiring. You can buy custom plastic adaptors that allow standard 17cm speakers to be fitted, or make your own (which is what I did from plywood).

I don't think the wiring will be there to support the power folding mirrors and it's controlled by a module called the GEM (Generic Electronic Module) behind the glovebox which might not have the correct programming (so you might have to swap that out as well). You'd also need to replace the mirror switch to control manual folding.

Hey buddy, you can get the correct speakers from ford for £22 each and with the folding mirrors from what iv heard you can retro fit then but its a pain in the butt

By the way how do you remove the rear speaker panels?

First you have to remove the plastic door sill (There are a few yellow clips holding it in), once you have got that off you can get the the rear panel. The rear panel is kept on by quite a few metal clips which are difficult to remove. When I did my speakers I didn't remove the whole panel just enough to get both of my hands in to install the speakers. The pamel does dig into your skin, so expect a bit on pain doing it that way.

Thanks

I asked a number of local ford dealers about having them fitted, all but one came back saying it could not be done and were not helpful at all. The other garage quoted me 700!

I think it can be done for much less than this. I reckon you would just need 2 power fold mirrors at around 100 each, a switch at about 20, wiring ??? and then the ECU would need reprogramming ??

I assume this would be much the same as having cruise control fitted....another option i am very keen on adding. Though i understand ford are unwilling to help with this and doing it yourself is tricky.

It would be great if you managed to get them fitted, and share your wisdom.....let me know how it goes.

I looked at this but i don't think my existing wiring is suitable for the wire plug on the power fold mirrors to clip into. You should set up your own garage doing mods like these. i'm sure we would all come and give you the business! You seem to know everything ha!

I'll be making a guide soon on how to check if your car is suitable :)
