Mark 6 Interior

18 posts in this topic

I'm looking to replace the silver air vent surrounds in my mk6 fiesta as they are quite scored. I'm tempted by gloss black ones but i can't find them.

Is this something i would be better doing myself or is there somewhere i can buy them.

Get yourself some wet/dry paper, primer, paint and lacquer and give it a try yourself mate ;)

Yeah I spotted them. But I have my heart set on gloss black. I'm in the process of getting the door handles, mouldings and wing mirrors in gloss black and I kinda want the interior the same. Also looking a a nice set of 15" sierra cossie sharktoooth alloys!

the rings on your fiesta are moulded into the dash, the center ones can come off but you have to remove the dash as the whole part is screwed together from inside. basicly its only the facelift version and the newer (current) model that the vents are removable on.
