Another fantastic thread full of useful info. I nearly have a plan of action now for adding CC but there's one stumbling block for me. I don't want to lose the ST 3 spoke steering wheel.

Is it possible to retrofit the controls from the 4 spoke wheel to the 3 spoke ST wheel?

No, it is not possible.

There are other ways to fit CC, far from factory look but you could keep your ST steering wheel and you do not need controls from 4 spoke wheel.

CC buttons fitted under steering wheel covers:

or CC buttons fitted inside radio control stalk

This is for sure not plug and play but it can be done.

Far as i'm aware the mk2 buttons are integral to the wheel.
There are cc button wheels available on eBay.
The mk1 cc buttons were on a seperate bracket which attached to the wheel.

Mk2 focus CC buttons are not integrated to the steering wheel. They are connected to the wheel using screws and yes, they can be bough separately. However, steering wheel originally without CC buttons are NOT compatible with buttons. It seems that our Russian friends from FFClub have fitted buttons to non-buttoned wheel, but they have cut some plastic etc. New buttons does cost just as much than used wheel with CC buttons, so there's probably no point getting just the buttons (ie. I paid 70 EUR for leather steering wheel with CC buttons )...

I think under the steering wheel covers is what I'll be going for if I can't get a good custom fit between the spokes on a 3 spoke st wheel. I think with a bit of fibreglass it's doable though.

In that 3 spoke pic have they simply taken the push switches out of the original switch units or are have they spliced new switches into the existing wiring?

Also, can anybody actually confirm they've managed to activate CC on an ST? I've got a spare 3 spoke wheel on the way and I'm trying to get hold of a 4 spoke now I can use to donate the switches.

When you get the 4 spoke with buttons put it on and try it after you do the activation.........then you know if it works and you can carry on canibalising the wheel as planned :)

Well i have done all my checks and I meet 3 out of the 4 criteria. The only one I dont have is the correct GEM number. Mine ends in BX instead of DX. Can get a wheel for £75 from the local scraper so might just risk it and can always sell the wheel if not.

Just out of curiosity, does anyone know where the CC switches are in the ST, as I have seen them advertised on autotrader with CC but in the pics they have the 3 spoke ST wheel?
I haven't seen the switches in any of the pictures, so was just wondering if Ford even offered the ST with CC or are the autotrader people not telling the truth!?

Quick update.

radio info displays radio station or frequency , CD track , but does not display music via memory stick.

Phone info displays incoming call info

Shift change although displays when you start the car , i held at 4000 rpm and as of yet has not displayed while driving.( Wife will probably get that one to display)

Reverse sound , is totally annoying and i will switch that off.

:)


Just a quick question - nothing to do with the retro fitting CC, what stereo do you have that your playing music through a memory stick?
