If so all I need is the loom.
Was it easy to install?

When I say everything that is the retrofit loom/module/mic/USB cable and some other little bits in that kit. I will just route the USB into the glove or get a socket that goes next to the heated screen switches prob just the glove tho as means I don't have to spend any more cash! I basically lost patience with the search to be fair and worked out if anything once I had sourced the bits separately it would save me maybe 50 at the most - not worth my time and hassle to be fair, if I had the wiring I would have deffo gone down the scrappy/ eBay route.

Getting the kit delivered today so hope to fit tomorrow weather permitting.

Should just be:

Remove stereo to fit loom
Remove glove to fit module
Route loom behind glove/connect
Route USB into glove
Install mic and run cable down the passenger a pillar and connect
Refit all
Update software

I reckon about an hour or so to do.

Search novero ford retrofit on Google and you will see the kit.

I wonder if I can just get the main loom.

When it arrives could you take detailed pics of it all. Personally I'd love to see both ends of the loom that connects to the Bluetooth. And the other end of the mic loom.
And one of the back of your stereo. If you wouldn't mind?

Hopefully like you. Should be an easy job if I can get a loom. As my old man pics my bits up from
The scrappy today

Yes you can using the proper ford Bluetooth/voice control/USB kit. iPod info comes up and A2DP streaming is available and also gives the track name on my Sony unit.

My car is a 2008 and my software was still new enough to accept USB (and then update to the latest one).

 

I think the cut off was sometime in early 2008 though as there are people with early Sony units that do not accept USB.

I think I've just found the grey connector block. I think Gav said it's for the mic?

The retrofit wiring loom is connected between the radio and the Quadlock (radio connector). It is not connected to the radio directly. The other end of the cable is attached to the microphone connector and the Bluetooth/voicecontrol connector. This wiring loom costs approximately €135,- from Ford.

Ok I followed the mic loom
This afternoon after seeing the grey block in the passenger pillar. After the grey block the wire then goes to this grey pipe visible wires head to the center dash and the pipe goes down and opens up again at the passenger footwell. Then heads to the rear of the car. Rear speakers?
