Ford Focus Mk 1 Bluetooth Aux In?

03 October 2012 - 07:03 PM

Hi Guys,

I've got a little question I was hoping someone could help me with (I have a horrible feeling this has been asked before, but I struggled to find an answer).

I have a 2002 Ford Focus 1.6 Zetec and into the stereo I have a connects 2 aux in adapter (see below for link) which I plug my iPhone into. For a year or so this has served me really well and I was really happy with it.

Now I'm looking at buying a Belkin Aircast (see below for link) which uses Bluetooth to wirelessly pickup music and phone calls from my phone (using A2DP). All you need is an aux in and a power supply from a cigarette lighter.

Its had good reviews and I'm quite keen on installing one. The only problem is that I don't want the power adapter sticking out of the dash, ideally I'd like it hidden behind the dash or in the glovebox.

So what I'd like to know is:-

I imagine that if I remove the stereo head unit i'll have access to the back of the cigarette lighter. Would it be possible to add another cigarette lighter outlet by splicing the cable of the new one onto the existing one?

If this is a bad idea is there another way of achieving a similar result?

Any hints/tips/advice/opinions more than welcome.

Thanks,

Tom.
