don't like the tail lights extending down the side of the car at all, looks very odd.
I also think it looks somewhat like and old civic to a certain extent, which I wouldn't be mad about. That said, it's a nice car

#159146 Guide To Converting Stock Climate Controls To Custom Set

Posted by irl-06lx on 03 January 2012 - 10:25 AM

think I'll get these, they look brilliant. Thanks Lenny for the guide!

The issue about not seeing the directional indications could be annoying but I'd try remember what is where.

More importantly, has anyone got the aluminum steering wheel inserts or whatever they are? My Lx doesn't have them and I'd love them but only if they were done right and I wouldn't be catching them or they were obviously raised.


#158190 Parrot Mki9200 In 2006 Focus

Ok so I looked at all the wires and the instructions etc and decided it wasn't half as bad as I thought. So I went at it this morning and low and behold its fully installed.

Really pleased with it and working well. Went for a drive and noticed that when using the radio etc, the controls attached to behind the steering wheel don't work.

I've no idea why this is as there is only one connector to the back of the radio and everything else is working fine. There is an adapter to change it to ISO if that could make a difference....

Thoughts and thanks for the help so far

Would prefer the mic up top tbh.

I'm half tempted to get halfords to fit it, but just wonder about their ability to fit it well.. Is it no just any old joe who got a job there given the task of fitting it?

Anyone know what wiring adapters are needed to put the above parrot into my LX focus?

Halfords link would be ideal.

Thanks a million and merry Christmas!

#157805 Guide To Fitting Mist Type Jets On Your Ford

Posted by irl-06lx on 23 December 2011 - 02:19 PM

Just had another look. Pushed them up with a flat head and there was a bit of silicone holding them in alright.

Got me though, there was a rubber seal that i didn't see left on the bonnet, put on the new one and it wouldn't sit down. Took it off and unknown to me the old seal stuck to the new part. Had another go and it wouldn't clip in. So I had a look, noticed there were two rubber seals so took one off to reveal a slightly angled part which I thought might clip in. Sure enough once it was off it clipped in. Wasn't overly happy as I wasn't using them the way they were made, or at least so I thought.
Went over the other side and the old one left the rubber seal on the bonnet but this time I saw it and I released it was the same as the one I took off the first new part.Tok it off and the new one sat in perfectly.

They're working grand, the drivers side one over shoots the side of the windscreen a little but its grand.

Thanks Lenny!

just received these. the heated type.

bit of an issue, the old jets don't just pop out of place... tried levering them and pushing etc but nothing. any suggestions?

there is a seal around the whole, does this come out too or stay there? it looks like mine have been siliconed in from the excess on the underside of the bonnet
