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.

€135? Is that a typo?

No, unfortunately not.

From Ford the complete retrofit kit costs about €500,- and the seperate parts which are included in the kit are also expensive.

I bought all Bluetooth/Voicecontrol parts from a local scrapyard for less than €40,-. I made the wiring loom myself using an interior wiring loom from a scrap Focus MK2.5.

Fitted the kit and all working fine! Took about an hour. Very easy. Funny thing was I found the module connector but I deffo had no mic going in to the roof lining. The retrofit kit kit just makes it so easy. I will be posting some pics later in my thread ( not really that much to say to be honest)

Check if it has a mini usb plug on it as they are the later versions and I think most of the ones with mini usb have bluetooth streaming too?

All modules with USB support do also have A2DP (bluetooth Audio).

Initially only modules (with USB support) with part number 8M5T-19C112-AM and later did support A2DP. The modules with part number 8M5T-19C112-AK did originally not support A2DP but after the Ford Audio Update these modules also support A2DP.

Had a thought gents. After getting the wrong retro fit cable for the Bluetooth VC USB module I noticed that the cable has the mic connector. But it wasn't long enough to reach all the way up to my mic. Now when the newer retrofit cable arrives I guess the mic cable also won't be long enough. So I traced the current cable I have from my interior light.ImageUploadedByFord OC1390304607.549913.jpg
With mic attached.

When the new retrofit cable arrives. How do I connect it up?

9. Wires go into this grey connector but only 3 come out.

The retrofit kit uses a different type of microphone which is mounted on the A-pillar cover. This is because not all Focus MK2/MK2.5 models have the large interior light frame with mounting hole for the microphone and the retrofit kit must be universal for all Focus models.

If you want to use the microphone in the interior light frame you have to extend the microphone wiring.

Fantastic that answered that.

I guess I'd have to splice cables together. Does it matter which cable is connected to which other?
