Cheers for the advice people. Just chucked my car into ford etis and seems like it does have electric windows according to this.

"Power Front Windows One Touch Up/Do" and a cheeky "DAB Radio" not bad for a brand new £7500 car :)

How accurate is ford etis? Seems strange that i seen a few pre-reg ones with wind-ups out in the back. I'm having nightmares about it ahah!

I haven't spoken to the dealer on this yet, wanted some advice here first. Going to wait for the VIN number so I can clarify the specs, then i'll discuss it with the dealer. As long as you think I have some grounds for some kind of compensation i'm happy.

the conversion from Mk2 to Mk2.5 Ford audio unit is pretty simple. I did it in around 45mins. You need the Oval fascia, and brackets for the new unit, as the new unit screws in. I found the screws were the pain to sort, as ford dont stock them (or say they dont). I finally went to B+Q and bought a small packet of the fattest, and shortest self tappers, and used them.

This website has step by step pictures of the process with Ford part numbers if the stuff you need, so you dont need to confuse the Fords storeman.

hope that helps..., BTW, I am sure that the unit you have seen on E-bay will also need a curved fascia as well.


I can't see the complete tutorial for the conversion. Am i missing something? I'm gonna give it a go this weekend, little bit worried about the brackets situation. Can anyone expand on this for me?

Cheers for the guide mate, looks like fitting the facelift model stereo is more hassle than it's worth.

So i'm now looking at this stereo : http://www.ebay.co.u...c#ht_500wt_1287

Do you reckon i'll have any problems with this one? Looking at it the stereo is square so I won't have to change the fascia and there are keys on each of the corners of the stereo.
