Thought i'd post this up in case anyone wants to do it.........i have sucessfully installed bt & voice control using the patch loom designed for the Fiesta. My vehicle, S Max ( 2007 LX ) is not prewired for this, so i thought i'd try the patch loom and it works.....part numbers required are,,,,,,


module part number 7S7T 19G488 - AE
patch loom finis no. 1429802
microphone finis no. 1363463
Stalk with bt/vc finis no. 1740611

Only thing you need to modifiy is to extend the mic. wire by about 18".
The patch loom is able to tuck away nicely under the head unit , while the bluetooth module wire is routed into the passenger footwell and the mic wire to the drivers side, over pedals and steering column and up the pillar behind the trim.........

Takes an hour and that's it.........
Activating via IDS is required of course, but can be done before or after.....i had it activated a few weeks ago ready for when i bought the parts.
I have a Sony mp3 head unit installed and one thing to remember is that the software revision of your unit must begin in 05- xx- xx. Those starting in 04-xx-xx will not work......(check it by turning on unit and press 1&6 together)
I'll answer any questions as they come, just thought i'd pop it up for the minute.
Hope this helps.........Richie.

Thought ' How To' guides were only for paid members on that forum, which i am, so i thought i 'd post up my experience here where its free......just trying to help others out.......making them aware that the patch loom works for vehicles not prewired for BT..

Had mine activated at an independent garage, along with cruise control, autolights and wipers + PCM and all module reflash for € 80 all in. Half hour and everything was done.......

Hi Richie, I'm lookin at retro fitting Bluetooth into my 2008 focus titanium. I have the Sony mp3 head unit already. How do I know what USB module I need? I'm looking on eBay but there seems to be different serial numbers on them? Do I need a perticular one to match my car? And how would I know if the wiring loom is already in my car?
Thanks mate
