Help Fitting Fuel Computer To Focus Mk1

22 February 2012 - 09:22 PM


I was wondering what to do with the useless pocket next to the steering wheel when I came across this:

I have a Ford Focus 2003 1.8 TDCI (115ps) Zetec.

Has anyone fitted this before? or know any 'friendly' guides to installing? and what I need to do it?

This is what I have so far:
'unfriendly' guide -

ebay kit? -

what do you guys think?


Focus Mk1 Tinting Windows

19 December 2011 - 09:45 PM


I'm thinking of tinting the windows on my 2003 Ford Focus Zetec TDCI, however I don't know what percentage I can go up to.

I know that the front windows must let at least 70% of light through. And after reading around, the right percentage is also affected by what tint is already on the window.

So I'm wondering if anyone has any experience on this? What would be a safe percentage to go for? How much would it cost to be professional done? Is it worth it?


Running Speaker Cables Down Drivers Side

21 June 2011 - 06:12 PM


Basically I'm looking to install a 4 channel Amp under the drivers seat.

I have a power distribution block under the back seats and will soon install a ground box. RCA cables run down the passenger side.

So what I'm looking to do is run power/ground/RCA from back seats to Amp.

I then want to run the speaker cables from the HU down the drivers side to the Amp.

Has anyone ran cables down the drivers side? and have a guide?

Or would it be easier to run it down the passenger side round the back seats and to the Amp?


Sub And Amp Install

19 June 2011 - 02:15 PM


Basically I'll say what I was planning and say where I need help. I am open to new ideas.

So what I was planning was:
Run a 0AWG power cable from battery to distribution box either under passenger seat or more likely under the back seats.
Run power cable from box to sub.
Earth will either be in the boot or I've heard the passenger seatbelt bolt is a good place (what do you think?)
(For now) run Hi-Low converter from back speakers to sub amp.
Remote from stereo down the drivers side (if anyone has a link for how to wire this would great)

Near Future plans:
Wire a small computer under the passenger seat.
VGA cable and USB to head unit.
Audio cable to sub in boot and amp under drivers seat.
USB to hub in glove box.

Wire a 4 channel amp under the drivers seat.
All speaker cables from HU down drivers side to Amp along with remote wire.

So, what do you guys think?
I have found a guide for power cable to boot. But nothing for wiring down the drivers side. Has anyone got a link for this?
