Stoney, trying to install the ashtray now. Do I need to break the existing lighting from the back or it snaps off from the head?

If you are referring to the black ring holding the lighter socket into the original position then there's two ways.

First is to push in two plastic lugs inside the socket itself which are a right pain to get to or snap the empty tube on the side of the black ring off with pliers and pish the whole lot through from back to front.

I'f try the lugs first, if you have a thin bladed screwdriver push each lug out in turn making sure you force the lugs hard enough to permanently unhook them then slide the socket out forwards.

Yes, missed out on one two weeks ago. There is one on there now but damaged on the right hand side. Like a burnt plastic. So don't wanna get that. So yes will help if you know someone or find one for me in good condition.

Thanks again for your help.

I'll keep a look out.

They don't go cheap but far better than £280 from Ford.

The only ways to get an iPod connection are to have the bluetooth module with USB/AUX input or (like I'm about to fit into my car) a standalone USB interface-

Looks cool, let us know once you install it and if you recommend it. Thanks

I will do.

Hopefully tomorrow weather permitting.

It's part of a bigger mod that I've been planning for a while but only just got all the bits together (and then the crappy weather arrives when I finally have a couple of days to do it in).

Fitted the USB kit, does nothing with an iPod but is perfect with a memory srick.

You can skip tracks and folders with the steering controls.

Hi Guys,

Managed to complete the interior now. However don't think my sony is BT but it's a 2009 model I think so confused.

Sound quality is better than the standard cd player I had.

Now need to get rear speakers any advice on size etc?

Many thanks in advance
