In Topic: Fiesta Glove Compartment Cut Out For 3.5Mm Socket

If it's a MK6 then the hole goes next to the 12V socket.

Clive,    OK thanks, it is a 2006 Fiesta.   I'll take a closer look tomorrow.  Just wondered why the garage left the cable and plug dangling in the glove compartment, perhaps they did not know there was a recommended place for it ?.

Thanks,   Phil.

The aux socket is meant to go into the centre console on a Fiesta but as it looks like your socket has been fully clipped together you may be stuffed anyway as they clip together as a one hit deal.
The only way to seperate the clip is to break it unfortunately.

Where abouts on the centre console ?.  I did not see any spare holes or marks where a hole could be drilled ?.   Near the gearstick there is a cigarette lighter and the other side has a place for a cup.  There is space next to the air in  / out button or the air con on/off button ?.   Only had the car a week.   Phil.

Thomas,

Thanks ,  I'll make up something to be able to fix the round socket into the square hole. I'll probably do some drilling and filing with a piece of plastic to fit over the square hole.  I just thought for a moment we had the wrong lead and socket fitted at the garage. Thanks again,   Phil.
