Another niggle sorted how?
Well first I removed the courtesy light loosened the screw holding in place the Ariel which was star fitting,then loosened the earth bolt near it which earths the interior lights,then I've used some soldering wire I suppose any wire will do and trapped it under the 2 points nipped them up and Hey Presto.The reception is near 100% now so thought I'd share incase it was driving anyone else mad.

Cd6000 Speaker Connections

Hi the rear speakers in my focus mk2 aren't working seems a common problem, what I'm thinking is bridging the positive sides of these speakers to the front speakers would this work or damage the head unit? If so its just a case of identifying the correct wires

Boot Release

28 July 2015 - 04:13 PM

Hi folks if your mk2 focus boot release won't work manually it seems once you have removed the rubber cover and rotten parts from in between no plate lights the little red switch inside still operates the boot lid,that's a result I'd say if a little fiddly!
