Higgsy, how did you get that small pannel off where you've put the Bluetooth module?
I know the door trim needs to come off but i cant see how it comes away? Do i need to remove other parts around it to remove it?

Have something to contribute?

Pull it towards the back of the car mate not towards the door. Pull the door seal off first

Cheers only thing really planned for the exterior are painting the drums. I want to get it lowered and maybe the windows tinted too at some point. Waiting until the weather gets better and then gonna get cracking. I need to decide whether I'm gonna do the lowering myself to save cash depends how much people a garage will charge I've lowered and done suspension before so shouldn't be a problem and have the equipment, its just whether I can be bothered!

Received and fitted an auto-dimming mirror from a mk3 Mondeo today. Awesome mod for 20 English pounds. Easy enough to fit just 3 wires - one to ground, one to a switched ignition feed and another to the reverse circuit.

I just used the roof ground, ran a 2 core cable down the passenger a pillar then used a piggy back fuse in fuse 108 with a 5 amp fuse for the mirror ( added 2 connectors to the piggy back fuse as I will also be using it for my dashcam when I get it) then tapped d into pin 1 on the big brown connector on the PJB (green and orange cable) for the reverse feed.

So auto dims when ignition is on and when you put it in reverse it switches the dimming off.

Love this mod!

Thats the easy way for sure, literally a 5 min job with a couple of scotchlocks.  I just wanted to do it the way it was meant to be lol. doing it that way means it drawing power for 20 mins or whatever the battery saver relay is set too - didn't like the idea of that

Not knocking you for doing it properly! Always best to do things that way :) (and I usually do!) I wasn't sure if I was going to keep the car when I did it and wanted the ability to remove it easily.

dont worry dude I was just sayin. I actually made its own loom with spade connector blocks etc, so the only wire I had to tap was the wire for the reverse  :D

Loving the mirror! Is it the same wiring to a pre face lift?

Is it a case of wiring black wire from the mirror to a earth somewhere then pin 2 from the mirror to the headlight switch and pin 3 is to the reverse. Where is the reverse wire?

i expect its more or less the same but cant say for sure.

 

Yes its as you say - earth to the roof earthing point then, run a 2 core cable to the the cabin fuse box behind glovebox for ignition live/reverse circuit.

 

I piggy backed off fuse 108 for ignition live and on the focus mk2.5 the reverse circuit is cable/positon 1 on the big brown connector that goes into the cabin fuse box, green/orange cable.

 

Very easy to do.

I think so - I didn't tap the wire I put a proper/separate ring connector on the roof earthing point/bolt.
