Yer no problem Steven2898 im installing it all on Thursday so ill put pics up :-) went to a safari in longleat yesterday and the monkeys ripped my parking sensors out! So ordering some silver ones ! Although I've got a reverse camera going in as well but it's all good , I've ordered about £70 of stuff yet it's gonna make a big difference , new heater controls , washer jets , pedals , front bulbs and number plate bulbs , and stereo was separate but will be good and well worth the money !

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.fordowner...927#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
