Hi guys

Im sure this topic has been done to death, but im sorry, I couldn't find it in searches or ebay

 

Im wanting to fit a single din kenwood instead of the CD3000 in my 2006 focus

 

I know I need the fascia din adaptor and a wiring loom

 

 

But I don't understand why the fitting kits are about £70 on ebay, but a fascia adaptor and loom are only about £20 each!

 

and also, they're all either 2005> or 2007<          ..nothing in the middle? (2006)

 

 

Any help?

Thanks!

The fitting kits include a remote interface too, that's the pricier part.

I think they're just bracketing the years , although you have to remember that late 07 was when the facelift MK2 came out and i've seen facelift models fitted with the rectangular radios rather than the oval ones.

Thanks for the reply!

That facelift is what I'm worried about ..for about a year either side its almost as though they threw what ever they had in the car!!

 

so I need a fascia with a cage as well?

and theres 2 different looms I need? one specific to my focus, and one specific to the Kenwood?

 

...Christ, if spotty teens at Halfords do this how am I struggling so badly!? hahaa

 

cheers mate

The full kit needed will be-

  1. Fascia adaptor
  2. Ford specific cage (cages that come with the single din radios tend to be too deep for Ford dashes by about 10mm so a wee bit of trimming/bending may be needed)
  3. Loom adaptor specific to Ford and Radio manufacturer
  4. Ford remote interface
  5. Aerial adaptor
  6. Keys to remove the original radio

1. Fascia adaptor-

2. Cage (the shape of the rear of the cage should give decent clearance for the dash framework behind the radio)-

3. / 4. Kenwood/Ford loom adaptor (with controller interface)-

5. Aerial adaptor plug (converts an ISO connector to the DIN type needed)-

6. Radio removal keys

I make that a grand total of £42.26 with no delivery costs

Absolute hero mate! thanks a lot for the time :)

You can install a Ford DAB aerial but a stick on one is easier and cheaper.
