Hi, yes it can play mp3's. there should be an aux plug in the glovebox on the top front lip toward the left of the catch.

if not the radio is compatable but you will need to buy the lead and jack plug from an agent.

they should be about £7.00 or £8,00 for the lead and connector.

you will then need a set of radio removal keys. Agents are to charge £15.00 for a radio code which means removal of the unit to get the code. If you ask them to fit the plug they will charge you about £75.

so i suggest you ask them to remove the radio for a code and then fit the lead yourself. you do not need the keys to replace the radio but you will need your code if the unit has been unplugged.

hope this helps. fordselleruk

There are NO KEYS on the 2008 face lift focus

The surround clips in round the radio a pain to get off with out marking start at sides and lever it gently with a PLASTIC lever

when the cover is off the radio is held in by 4 screws on in each corner

Very similar idea to the 2005 2006 Fiesta STs all the ones that had the radios out have marks on the dash

If you got it NEW the code is in the handbook pack or ask the dealer if you do not have it they can tell it from the VIN number takes seconds My last ST came with out key code and it took him seconds to look it up when I collected car new

Yeh, it was on offer for me but unfortunately i added few extras, (interior and zetec package) which made it into a factyory order so i didnt get it=( tho my player still has the bluetooth buttons for calling and answering-they made it into MUTE BUttons!! :huh:

Oh, those who have the 2008 focus (mines Zetec 2.0 3dr) have you notice a weird sound coming from your car when you parked up for sometime??

Mine made a little Gerning sound every minute or so- noticed when i parked up at night waiting for sum1. When my engine was off..

Any1? do you know what it may be? A recharging sound mayb??!
