Hi guys, this is my first post here, i have just bought a 58 plate Black 2.0 TDCi TItanium...Its ace, but i forgot to ask the bloke at the garage if it had bluetooth, and just as my luck would have it.....it doesnt.....I need to know what i need to do to get it.....I have looked all over the place and found different bits of information but nothing conclusive and concise.

I removed my glove box and i have a plug which was taped up, i believe thats to connect to the nokia bluetooth thing...

What else do i need to check before i buy the nokia bluetooth adapter etc?

Any help is appreciated....

Thanks :)

Welcome to the forum
if you get a moment join photobucketand upload some picture's of your motor,
you can then link them to this forum,
once uploaded go to Album,

below or above each picture on photobucket is an Image URL
copy this URL and paste it in to your posts
once pasted in the post remove the
.img from either side of the link then its job done,

also check out DMB Graphics for Ford Badge Overlays and vintage Decals Click Here
and see my guides listed below this post you may find some of Interest.

for the bluetooth system you will need to change the front interior light surround to one that has a mic. Click Here

also once you have the bluetooth module fitted you will need ford to activate the stereo to run the bluetooth system.

Hope this helps mate B)

its very unusual that you dont have the bluetooth module, and ford dont tape up the plugs that are not in use mate, they just leave them loose,
so my guess is that who ever sold the car or owned it before you, has removed the module and tapped up the plug, so if you fit the module or take it back to ford you may have some come back on it because if they enter your vin number on ford etis it will display the bluetooth being fitted in your car because the bluetooth system comes as standard on the titanium spec.

your the first titanium owner i know that hasent got all the features mate, if you fit the module it should be the only hardware you need to get it going,
also would be no harm to take down the interior light and ensure their is a mic at the back of the grill,

their is a bluetooth module on ebay Click Here and Click Here

I've got no bluetooth on my titanium either. :( I think cruise control and Bluetooth were only standard from 09 registered vehicles.
