#499197 Radio Swap

Posted by Lenny on Yesterday, 04:24 PM

Hi Guys,
 
Aside appearance (trust me that wont be a problem...)
 
Does this look like a fairly straight swap?
 
http://www.ebay.co.u...=item2ed76771fa
 
I think I probably need a ford quadlock to ISO adapter? or would the one provided suffice?

You would need as ISO conversion cable and most likely a dash section replacement aswell,
DynamicSounds are a london based supplier of complete aftermarket headunit install kits,
Contain everything needed including aerial adaptor,

Personally id be concerned at the price of the headunit it may be such a hot deal the car would combust,
Why are you swapping for this one?

#498610 Mk6 Fiesta Flame 1.4 Build Log (Was Fiesta Mk6 5 Door Custom Sub)

Posted by Lenny on 26 June 2015 - 06:08 PM

I've fitted one in the boot light too! 10x better than before
I've got a facelift bumper in the shed.. Smoothing the plate recess! I've then got some LED fogs and a debadged grill to fit :)
I would remove the rear wiper but it would drive me crazy having a stalk yo activate it and it doing nothing. To remove on the fiesta you just remove the plastic boot trim, remove the wiper from the outside using a socket, then after removing the motor wack a grommet in it

Sounds great look forward to watching progress mate,

My filter should be here soon from the link above Lenny, also which wipes are the Matt finish Armor All dashboard wipes ones. There are many different types and the result you have looks top notch

Thanks mate,
There an orange packet with a green tab says Matt finish
I think its a red tab on the gloss finish packet,
This is the pack on the left in image from Halfords available in Tesco and fuel stations aswell.

It's pretty much in the sidewall!! Took it to a family friend tonight and it's basically knackered :(

Having read this last nite i thouhht id hop outside to check the tyres on my focus,
Rears fitted in March are fine,
Fronts fitted last September are almost down to the rubber bridge on the channel so July will be an expensive month for me aswell and i haven't even been driving it since mid May vicki's been putting it down :rolleyes:


#498131 Guide: Fitting Egr Blanking Plate 1.6Tdci Engine Pdf

Posted by Lenny on 24 June 2015 - 08:57 PM

I've got the car back today, I took it to a Diesel specialist and they diagnosed the third EGR valve to be faulty, they suggested fitting a genuine ford EGR and it seems to have done the trick, they did say they've removed quite a few pattern EGR's several made by Lucas, which is what mine were. So after three attempts even fitting a blanking plate, (now removed) the car seems fine. Thanks for all the suggestion's pity they didn't work as they were much cheaper than the final bill!
Sent from my iPad using Ford OC

Glad to hear youve gotten it sorted mate,
Id still keep it blanked after all done.
This reminds me; didnt james May crack a joke about the electrical automotive part manufacturer "Lucas" in the last one hour special of TopGear there said to be brutal manufactures anyway.
Heres a list: http://www4.ncsu.edu...ris/index3.html

I always thought your focus was a petrol mate haha!

Who ever said that Diesel couldnt look sexy :lol:
Looks like a performance petrol but unlike a performance petrol it can be taken on tour :)

#498080 Green Cotton Performance Induction Filter Fitting Guide

Posted by Lenny on 24 June 2015 - 06:36 PM

How come you didnt fit them to your focus too?

Assuming your serious on the question ill respond;

My focus is a Diesel.
Uses Glow Plugs instead of spark plugs,
The glow plugs just get red hot like a poker and stay that way theres no real improvements to be made.

Spark plugs flash on and off,
The more conductive they are, the more responsive the engine give or take a few bhp and efficency.
