I don't think anyone had ever installed that kit and made a guide, however if memory serves me correctly....

When you remove the airbag, you should have two connectors underneath for the cruise control. It should be a case of just plug them in. Then I would say the !Removed! of the buttons should be straight into the cowling of the steering wheel covrt

You were considering? What do you mean, what is your choice? You say that this kit looks ugly on 3 spokes wheel? Why so?

Do you have the same 3 spokes sport steering wheel as mine on your TDCI IGOR?

 

 

And YES, 100% agree that it's more convenient to have the button around the wheel than on the left side with the radio buttons. I'm not sure about which guide or tutorial to follow though. Is there a good one in english or better a complete video tutorial? To mount the cheap Chinese kit from aliexpress.

 

Yes, I have the same 3-spoke steering. If you mount the switches on a 3-spoke wheel you're left with gaps between the spokes and switch banks. In my eye that's ugly, but I'm no expert. I first wanted to mount a 4-way switch on the back side of the left spoke of the steering wheel but didn't have the courage to disassemble the wheel and drill holes in it. In the end I mounted a 4-way switch on the radio stalk. A bit fiddly to use but it's fine once I got used to it. Here are some photos: http://www.fordowner...-37#entry465318

 

A good tutorial is a great idea but the problem is new versions of the software keep coming and people keep finding out new things about the process so it would be a pain to keep the tutorial up to date, with videos and all. I thought about making one but it seemed like too much work keeping it up to date. I suggest you read this thread 10 pages back and come back with questions. We're here.

There are some tutorials on the Russian Ford Focus forum but I can only find the 4-spoke ones.

 

This one is 3-spoke using Mazda Tribute buttons: http://ffclub.ru/top...1#entry15720021 Doesn't look too bad actually

 

Use Google Translate :)

Hi I'm new here (lost virginity post)

Hi everyone :D

I'm trying to get cruise control on my 2008 Focus ST Facelift.

Has anyone tried the stalk like these to get the cruise working on this model?

Many Thanks In advance
