Ford 6000 Cd For Ford Sony Cd

Recommended Posts

I'm thinking about changing my Ford 6000CD unit for a Ford Sony CD on my 2009 Focus, so I can use the mp3 option.I just wondered if this is a straight swop and if the column stalk controls would still work with the Sony unit,has anybody done the same modification and if so how difficult is the exchange?

Done exact same swap on my 05 focus-10 minute job and column stalk controls worked fine. Its just a case of removing the old stereo and pitting the new one in its place. Only complication would be if the Ford stereo you fit has a DAB radio so you would need change the aerial etc and the wiring for this.

Thanks for that, how did you remove the dash trim without causing any damage and do I need any of those CD player removal keys you see advertised on ebay?

Yes you do need the removal keys, you just slide them in until they are firmly in place and prise the unit out. If done carefully it shouldn't cause damage to any of the surronding trim.
