I've just done this and the parts were £60.85 from ford parts plus £85 for a second hand module from ebay.

Depending how quickly you want to do this, you can save a search on ebay so they will check once a day and email you any results. I searched for 8M5T-19C112 and ended up with a 8M5T-19C112-AP which works perfectly.

Thanks for this info! sound exspensive but seems to be my only option if i want a USB connection. What is the difficulty level in fitting the equipment?


It was very simple to remove the panels although a little daunting at first - the hardest bit is ensuring you have access to a Ford VCM and the IDS software to change the car config to enable the new functionality.

That sounds gud! Im not in any massive rush as if its going to be £300+ then it wud only be when i cud afford it anyway! But i am definatle going to save a search on ebay because that was seems alot more affordable! Was ford quite willing to do the software update or did u have to pay for this

I found a local independent ford garage who unexpectedly didn't charge me, then again it was only a ten minute job - plus the guy was into cars and seemed interested that it would be possible. However, from what other people have said, a lot of ford garages will refuse point blank to do it and some may charge their minimum labour rate. All depends how lucky you are or if you know someone who has access to the hardware/software needed to change the config.

Patience is a virtue - if you're quick enough on eBay they're £75-90 ;)

Still waiting for ebay but im starting to think that patience is a virtue i dont have!! lol

I have been in touch with fordpartsuk and they have advised that the hardware below is what i require for the retro fit.

Fiesta 2009-Module Bluetooth BT/VC+ USB Connect (with Voice Activated Module English)
Part Number: 1754709(AU7T-19C112-AT)
£225.69
Fiesta 2009-Centre Console Cover BT/VC Phone Interface + USB Connect
Part Number: 1572824(QTY1)
£3.17

I am now quite tempted to just pay the higher price to get these parts.

My only problem iws the software update with the IDS! I have contacted ford direct and 2 garages that a near all 3 are adamant that it isn't possible and refuse to even attemp a software update if i get the parts! IDo you know of anyone but ford that have access to the software and hardware required to perform this update?

Bumping this thread as 2 of those part numbers were wrong. Have included the correct ones now Posted Image


Hi guys, does anyone know where these parts can be obtained? Would it be a scrapyard? Or are they available in any shops or online??

Cheers fellas

your local ford dealer will be able to get them - these will be extortionate prices though...
then your other options would be a scrappy or eBay but would be unlikely that they'll be on there

Parts from Ford will be around 475. As has been said a breaker is your best bet. They do occasionally come up on eBay. PM me if you're struggling and need help.

It usually takes my dealer a week to get it in (and that's from Germany) - I have 1 in at the moment you can have for cost + postage. Alternatively this cable also works as a cheap, temporary option but you just have it dangling in the glovebox rather than 'factory fit' look by gearstick. BTW it looks like the seller has whacked the price up, they usually do this when they're out of stock (it was £1.10 before) so look for cable elsewhere or check when they're getting it back in.
