That's the exact same as mine mate! I've unwrapped the black tape to uncover the big black and beige coloured plugs, and you have the same little black one free as mine too, with the brown and blue wire coming from it. Even the rest of the wiring, to my eyes at least, doesn't look anything like the original guide pics that Lenny posted on Page 1.

I can't get it working at all. Do you intend to have a go at this anytime soon? I'm pretty much stumped at the minute, so think I'll just put everything back together for the mean time.

EDIT: Thanks very much for the pic by the way!

Thought it was. Noticed it wasn't the same as Lenny's

Was thinking about doing the mod but dunno when I'd ever get round to it.

Seems now though that I may not be able to. I'm sure there must be a workaround though.

No worries mate, thought the Ghia n Titanium would have the same wiring.

What you need to do is look for a connector of any colour with just one wire going to it.
As you've said the ST never had an estate version and the estate models have a power socket as standard so maybe the loom is different.
I believe if my memory is right that the wire is orange but the connector is brown on mine.

May be a good idea to ask nitemare to advise on this as he fitted it to his RS n see what his wiring loom is like.

Hi there,
Here is my orange connector which was in my wiring loom (December 2009 RS). You can see my black earth cable which I connected prior to attaching to 12V Socket.

Hope this helps??

Nitemare ;)

Thanks for the pic buddy. It is a lot of good actually, but leaves me none the wiser as to where our 12V plugs are!

From Nitemare's pic we can see that the two larger plugs are for the rear parking sensors control unit. I think we can also see the little black plug with blue brown wire in his pic, black tape over it about halfway between the control unit and the grommet in the floor. Seems to be unused here as well?

Still can't figure out where the orange 12V live plug is though! Does the wire run up from the floor, or down from above if you know what I mean...just so I can try and trace back along the loom to find it.

Nor me mate. Had to just put everything back together this avo so could be next weekend again before I get a chance to get a proper look at it again. The additional socket would actually be really handy for me for work so I really wanted to sort this mod when it should have been so straightforward!

If anyone can confirm or deny my theory on the wiring looms on the pre-facelift specs (I know Clive had no problem with it on his Sport), or give advice on what direction to follow the loom in search of the plug (ie back towards the cabin of the car?) that would be a help also.

By the way, Nitemare where you based? Just so I can keep an eye out for the RS!

If you don't haun the wire in the boot you could always run a spur from the front socket.
Easy to make a patch cable, just would have to be quite long.

I may be able to help you further.
When I purchased my 12v ford socket I bought it as part of a ford 12v boot socket kit.
It came with a black moulded plug and 3metres of positive cable.
Instruction manual for installation.
Crimp connectors.
12v socket & cap.
10 x Cable ties.
2 metre earth cable & moulded ring terminal.

Now I have used the earth cable and 12v socket, but I still have the 12v positive feed with moulded plug attached and the instructions. May still have the crimp connectors and cable ties too. Ford don't stock or sell the kits anymore I bought the last two packs and sold the other one on ebay last year for 28 pounds.
If this would be of use to you please PM me your address and I will dispatch to you tomorrow morning (Tuesday) via tracked post free of charge.
