In Topic: 3 Door Rear Card Removal

08 July 2015 - 09:24 AM

at 2am!

man you must be desperate for better speakers!

 

i googled it and found this thread: http://www.focusstoc.com/forums/topic/119224-removing-rear-interior-panels/ 

if you cant see it let me know and i will paste the details on here.

sod it i'll do it no

 

There are 2 fixings behind the 'B' pillar seat belt adjuster another behind the rear seat back pivot and one more at the rear, then it just pulls off.

Trouble is, the rest of the trim around the window needs to come off first or it becomes rather difficult.

the seat belt adjuster has a small cover at the top that reveals 2 screws, mind you don't drop them.

Also you won't see the screws if the belt adjuster is at it's highest position as this will cover the screws

The trim at the top has three screws under the long cover that hides the curtain airbag.

The trim at the rear that the parcel shelf sits on has 2 torx screws underneath. 

no wonder he spends all his money on the car lol


In Topic: Focus 2.0 Tdci Titanium X - Text Messaging

07 July 2015 - 12:46 PM

I am the new owner of a 2012 Focus TDCI Titanium X Powershift and love the car but I thought that the Sony Rasio/Nav Unit was able to read out incoming text messages, however no such luck!

 

Is there something I am missing when looking through the menu for the phone or are there any updates to the software available that my dealer has not installed.

 

If the latter, what, if any, is the cost of updating the software?

 

Thanks

 

Andy

Next to the camera itself the original rear view camera system does also need the original camera module. This module is connected to the CANbus network of the car. (If connected) This module sends a signal over the CANbus network which unlocks the rear view camera input on the display. Without this module the camera input is locked. The original camera module will only accept the original rear view camera. The parts of the original rear view camera system are pretty expensive. All needed parts will cost about €750,-.

However some clever Russians developed their own CANbus module which unlocks the camera input of the display. This module supports most camera's including the Chinese ones which can often be found on Ebay. The Russian module costs €70,- and can be found on the following website:

Do you mean on a factory fitted Ford module?

 

Not sure to be honest, maybe depending on what system you have installed. If it's third party- it'll probably output to a small lcd screen rather than your actual cars display (unless it's a Ford approved like X-Vision).

mines factory fit.just wondered if i could connect camer to it power wise
