Yer I did go a bit crazy haha , well I've had my radio for a while and I paid £250 when it was on offer at halfords , I've had £150 single ones and they don't cut it in my eyes , has to be a decent make double din with a screen , my Sony has done me so well in nearly 2 years , got every feature going , you can buy the later version of mine atm I think for £320 or pioneer have got a lovely unit double din but this one has DAB and it's I think £300 on offer

Headlights are easy.

Unscrew the Torx on top and then pull the lights forward.

There are two plastic clips under and behind each light but they usually release with a bit of a pull (if they don't then just push the back end down with a screwdriver and they unhook easily.

When you pull the light forward you need to lift the indicator side up slightly and ease them out of position.

I usually place a cloth on the bulkhead under the lights when resting them face down to change the bulbs so as to avoid scratching the lens.

The rear cover has 4 catches securing it, flick them in towards the cover and it lifts off easily.

Pull the bulb wiring off the bulb contacts then unhook the retaining springs.

Do not handle the bulb glass with bare hands as sweat and grease will shorten the life of the bulbs, I use a cloth or rubber gloves.

see my Guide on changing to mist type jets: http://www.fordownersclub.com/forums/topic/27149-guide-to-fitting-mist-type-jets-on-your-ford/?gopid=145927#entry145923

I think the loom you are referring to is in fact a power feed to a heater element within the washer jet,

This feature works along with the heated windscreen by passively heating the water as it passes through the jet on to the windscreen

thats true,

Problem is the pipes feeding the jets still get frozen solid,

So heated jets are pointless when the pipes are frozen :lol: heated windscreen is the business,

Strip does come from poland,

Take care to line up correctly as they only stick once,

they stick very well, the problem is they buckle if you try to remove it,

So ensure you have it lined up correctly prior to sticking,
