Not sure if anyone still watching this thread

I've fitted the Sony headunit as first step in this upgrade. Purchased correct BT USB unit
Still to get correct wires and USB connection plate

Looking back at one of the previous posts ( I think from Lez) it shows the screen after the IDS work done with an orange/ red backlight.
My original (lower spec) head unit had orange lighting and orange baklit screen also, the Sony headunit and the screen I've fitted have a white/ ice blue tiny lighting.
On previous Sony CD headunits I've fitted on older cars I've had, they had the option of changing the colour of the lighting both on the unit buttons and on screen.
Does anyone know if this is the case with the Sony headunit for the fiesta?

It is just with the lighting in the fiesta IMHO the red/ orange backlighting would tie in better with the existing lighting already fitted

Thanks in advance

Only way to change colour is to replace screen with a red one.

Cheers iNath,

Hmm not sure ill bother then as the buttons on the Sony unit would still glow white

I'm not sure how well it would work but if someone did fancy changing the colour of the screen a cheap option would be to remove the plastic sheet (LCD screen protector) from the screen unit and lightly spray the inside face with glass paint.

Off topic, I've done this on fluorescent strips for fish tanks in the past.
Seriously though I would only try this if u are very confident or have a spare that can be spared.

Same topic, just, but different part

I know some on here have changed the secret compartment to a drop down door, on the hinged version of the compartment cover.
My fiesta has the newer all clipped cover.

2 questions;

1) does anyone know if the cover can be swapped to the version with the hinge without also changing the heater matrix facia cover/ surround?

2) does anyone know/ can u see on the reverse of one that's been converted to drop down, the part number, because fordparts can't identify it from my part number and look for an older version of same part, so have asked for the part number.

Thanks again guys 😀

Tezza
My request to fordparts was

"The part I was looking for was an older version of;
8A61-A045N56 AFW
Bezel-IP-CENTER STACK UPPER"

And I explained that the one I have has clips where older one has a hinge onton the heater matrix facia cover

No joy though unless I can quote part number for older hinged version

You can't swap the clipped version for hinged one as you don't have the hinges for it to hook on to, and they're part of the dash behind the cover.

There are 2 USB looms so it depends which model module you have.
