Focus Aux In Behind Glovebox

32 posts in this topic

The full kit will not come with removal keys.

TBH the Ford cable is expensive for what it does and is prone to bad contact alignment.

You're better off with a cable that has a 3.5 plug on the end, you can run it to wherever you choose, no holes to drill and more efficient (plus you get the correct keys with it).-

No need to disconnect the radio quadlock at all, just pull the radio forward and plug the cable into the spare socket.

I used to have my cable coming out from under the demister switch panel so it was central and accessible.

Since fitting an upgraded centre console I extended the cable to come out in the armrest storage tray.

Some have brought the cable out of one of the centre air vents and some bring the cable out inside the glovebox.

The easiest way to ensure you can pull the cable out to full length is to tape some string (strong patacord is best) to the cable so you can guide it through from wherever you choise to position it.

If you remove the radio fascia you will see the two screws holding the switch panel in place.

Just loosen the screws and slide the cable down behind.

I have been at this stupid radio all day i got one side of it out the side closest to the wheel. i think the clips are broke on the left side as it is not budging i am using the right removal tools and they just wont clip when i put them in, they just slide in and out like theres nothing for them to clip to, any other ideas how i could get this radio out? I have had it out before with the same removal tools it just wont budge now been at it all day

Steak knives instead of the keys or push firmly on the side of the radio that is stuck to release pressure on the claws as you insert the keys.
