Installing Sony Cdx-Gt560Ui Stereo In Fiesta Zetec '08

12 posts in this topic

Hi guys,

Bare with me as I've just joined the site and this is my first post...

I currently own a 2008 Fiesta Zetec and I'm hoping to replace my current stereo (6000 CD), with a previous stereo (SONY CDX-GT560UI) as it has more connectivity.

Now I know I am going to have to fit a fascia on before I can fit my stereo but I just need some advice on the installation/setup.

As I've just found out, one of the two cables coming out of the back of the 6000 CD doesn't fit in the back of the Sony stereo - Is there an adapter available for this?

Also, I want to somehow configure the steering wheel controls to be functional on the Sony stereo, would I need an adaptor for this, if so which one?

I have attached two photo's of the Sony stereo I hope to install.

Thanks for your help in advance.

Hi and welcome.

You'll need a harness adapter to convert you cars harness to the stereo. Connects2 and autoleads are the ones to look for.

It's about 30 minutes worth of work.

Make sure you have 4 flat bladed keys to get the ford radio out.

disconnect it, plug in your new head unit, test it, then put the facia in and your done.

no need to disconnect the battery.

Yeah I've already had the thing out....

And I installed the same stereo in my old VW Polo about 6 months ago so shouldn't be too much trouble.

Thanks again :)
