Just a little bit, but fixing it is always better.

I've had exactly the same issue with my old Fiesta. You need to be a little bit handy to fix it. I went to the garden shop and bought a square plastic pot (any thick piece of plastic will do). After that I measured/cut the peace I needed and nailed it (with pop rivets) to the bumper. Roughly where your two holes are (on the picture). When it's securely in place, I removed the plastic plug (A on your picture) and measure out where I needed to drill the new hole in the peace of plastic that I've just nailed into place. All I needed to do then was secure the plug (A) into the new peace of plastic.


This little bit of DIY did the job for me. Hopes it helps with your problem.

You can order one at your dealership, but they cost a fortune.

Best chance is Ebay or scrapyard.

You can replace your radio/screen for the Sony model. The centre console will be black and the screen color blue/black.

The facelift radio will not work in the pre-facelift Fiesta.

In Topic: Fiesta Mk7.5 "battery Back Up Sounder"?

17 May 2015 - 09:11 PM

The backup battery alarm is in fact a part of the Thatcham cat. 1 alarm. It is a siren with a little battery in it. It's placed behind the right front wing.

This alarm is only fitted on the ST models, and only in the UK. In the rest of Europe it is an option (only on the ST). 

I retrofitted the thatcham alarm on my Titanium X, works great, but it is a lot of work to get it done.
