Fusion Radio Interchangeable?

19 August 2015 - 07:51 AM

Hello members, I have a 2005 Fusion that had a 4500 radio/cd. As this unit had no aux in I started using a fm transmitter which used to suffer from interference in certain areas. So I installed a Kenwood radio that had inputs. The thing is that I dont think it sounds as good as the original 4500 unit. I have ordered a Ford 6000 unit that is fitted to later Fusions as this has an audio input. Has anybody out there done this and if so, will the 6000 fit into the space on the facia vacated by the 4500 or will the facia have to be changed to accommodate the 6000?

Fuel Filter Drainage

23 May 2015 - 03:15 PM

Hello members, I have a Fusion 1.4 tdci. I fitted a new fuel filter at 55k . Haynes book recommends draining every 12.5 k. I tryed to drain it but nothing came out. So I removed drain plug and noticed that it dosent have a hole running through it even though it is designed to attach tubing to it. Also no fuel came out of filter with plug removed. I think there is no hole through to where fuel sits. I didn't want to make a hole in case bits of plastic enter fuel feed and block injectors. The filter is a pattern part and not a genuine Ford item. The filter is not due to be replaced until 93k. Is it really important to drain the water out of the fuel. ?

Gearbox Oil Change

23 August 2014 - 10:41 PM

Hi members, i have a 2006 cmax 1.6 tdci zetec with 5 speed manual gearbox. Gearchange is intermittently notchy. I want to check the gearbox oil level and to change it too.Please can anyone provide a link so i can see exactly where the level and drain plugs are. Also i think there is a filler plug on top of the gearbox with access made easier by removing air filter box, but this is unconfirmed. I need more information as i dont have a workshop manual.
