Rear Speakers

30 December 2009 - 09:26 PM

Well at last I have fitted rear speakers in my 3 door Zetec, and WHAT A DIFFERENCE! So if you have any thoughts, about doing it its worth it. Firstly the cables and plug were already there, but you will need screws and clips.
What I did find though that bot my rear panels were loose as there are so many clips missing. Cant think of anyone else taking them off, guess someone at the factory couldn't be too arsed. Still another job, on a warmer day.

Those Rear speakers again

Well having taken off the rear panel [in my 3 door Zetec] I can confirm that the wires are there, stuck to the body. So off to Halfords, where I was told we dont have speakers to fit that car. So I thought B****** to you then and went to FORD [Dagenham Cars in Hounslow, where I was told Ford speakers are ...............wait for it

23 each [ or 46 the pair] State the obvious
150 to fit them, when I said I could do that they told me it would affect the warranty
70 [or so] to re-program the computer to tell it I have new speakers/

So Total is 243 to fit 2 Ford speakers. Words fail me, and the way things are going I shall be returning to Renault who seemed to have sorted out their in car stuff.

the No back Speaker again

07 December 2009 - 07:46 PM

Well i went to a Ford dealership at the week end to ask about speakers for the rear of my Zetec [7]. They told me that the wires were not in place AND that it was an awkward and blood difficult job. Does anyone know this??? Or were they just giving me the "its not worth it mate" bit. to be honest given the price of the car they should be fitted with complete surround sound and a sub.

Has anyone on here put some in?? and perhaps can give me some advice?

On another note I bought a Road Pilot for the i pod, at first it was picking up every electrical thing in the car. wipers, indicators, brake lights. Dont worry if yours does this, because the wire to the Aux input is too thin and not shielded enough. I went too Maplins where they do a cable that is thicker, and it works a treat!!

Hi everyone. Just a quickie [ not now Vicar] does anyone know where I can download a manual? I have the handbook but need to know where some fuses go. It gives numbers in the hand book, but I cant see the numbers on the block [ behind the glove box]. I think my cigar lighter's blown. [or is smeone going to tell me its not wired up in the Zetec? :P

Zetec Question

29 November 2009 - 10:16 PM

Hi everyone!!

I have just purchased a Fiesta Zetec 1.4 Diesel with City Pack, mainly because 90% of my driving is in the city!. [ Second hand, with 2K on the clock] Impressed so far especially with the MPG, BUT and there is always a BUT I couldn't believe that there are no speakers in the back!!. So I read other threads on here but none of them answered my burning question, and that is....... are the wires in place??

And a subsidery not quite on fire question is, do the grill covers come off. or does the whole panel have to come out? :unsure:
