I need to replace my sat nav antenna on my '08 Focus Titanium. I know that it is probably located on top of the instrument cluster. I can access the back of the head unit to unplug the Fakra connector, and can trace the pathway of the cable, but i am not sure what is the easiest way to get to the top of the cluster. I was wondering if the storage compartment on top of the dashboard could be removed to enable access. Any ideas guys and gals?

Have something to contribute?

Hi mate,
as pree has advised, you will see the information on removing the cluster in the st pod guide listed below this post,
also to advise you the aerial for the GPS is fitted behind the mirror on the drivers side wing mirror.
