Hi All

 

I've got a Focus from 2002, with the original radio. I like the big buttons and integration with the steering column controls, and it sounds OK, but the lack of Aux input is bugging me. I was thinking of replacing it with an equivalent (perhaps slightly better) one from a later model Focus, with an Aux input. It seems there are a few on eBay. However, they look to be a slightly different shape.

 

Does anyone know if this is a good/bad/terrrible plan? Can you fit the later ones to the earlier cars?

 

Thanks in advance for any advice!

 

Cheers,

 

Tony

The later radios will not fit unfortunately.
As long as your current radio is not a 6006 model (6 disc model) you can get aux adaptors for them that plug into the cd changer port.
