Hey, New Owner Of An '08 Fiesta

02 March 2013 - 01:05 AM

Hey all, I'm Max.


New owner of an '08 Fiesta Zetec 1.4 Blue edition. Only had the car a couple days but am thouroughly impressed with it! Wanted to find out a bit more about the car and quite a lot of the searches led to this forum so I figured why not stick around and learn something :)

Fiesta Zetec 08 - Headunit Replacement Parts?

02 March 2013 - 12:31 AM



A couple days ago I got a Fiesta Zetec '08 Special Blue Edition, and I can honestly say I love it, absolutely fantastic car! So many nice little features that you wouldn't even think about when purchasing it but genuinely do make the car that much more enjoyable to be in.


Small side note, am I right in saying this is a mk6.5 Fiesta? (58 plate but not new style)


So, onto the topic in question; the headunit. About a month ago I bought an Alpine CDE-123R headunit which I plan on fitting into the car. The car currently has the stock Sony headunit fitted and I want to know what kind of cables/adapters/fascia I need to acquire to fit my Alpine headunit.

Note; not my picture.


I want to be able to connect my iPhone 5 via USB and use it to play music, not interested in the whole bluetooth/handsfree in car calls.


I already know, or believe I need to get a set of removal key tools.




However after this stage I'm kind of stuck, well I reckon I could work it out as I go along but I have no clue what other parts I will need. I think I'm going to need some form of adapter as the Alpine headunit has a different shaped cable block at the back. Also will I be able to use volume changer on the steering wheel?


Any help would be very much appreciated, and I once I have it all figured out I do plan on making a guide for this model Fiesta as there doesn't seem to be any out there (well none that I could find).
