Possible To Upgrade The 6000 Cd In A Mk1 Focus To One Of The Newer Models?

2 posts in this topic

Hi all,

I'm new to the forums here but have tried to search for the definitive answer to my question, but have not been able to find it. I'm sure it will be a simple yes or no from an experienced owner.

Is it possible to swap out the 6000 CD stereo unit in a Mk1 for any of the newer versions which come in the later model Focus? I would really like to be able to hook up my iPhone via USB or Bluetooth. I had a unit which stayed mounted in the driver's 12V adapter and ran a cable to the back of the head unit via a CD changer adapter, fooling the stereo into thinking I had a changer hooked up. However, this is pretty much broken now and I wondered if I might be able to go for a more elegant solution with one of the later model head units, but don't know if they will fit in the slot.

If not, I guess I'm looking at swapping it out and going for a fascia to fill the oversized gap right?

Thanks for any help!

Cheers,

Tom

The radios on later Ford's use a different type of connection.

To get what you need you're best off going aftermarket.

There are some nice double din ones around.

You'd need a true double din fascia, cage, loom/aerial adaptor and a remote interface though.
