In Topic: Mk7 Fiesta Metal Mod Ideas

I'm in a similar boat to you, don't really want to mod too much but enough to stand out a little. Take a look at my project thread. Only just started it but there are a few ideas on there

Just a few photos showing the de-tango process of all 4 indicator bulbs. Can also use this as a kind of a mini "how to" on removing a fiesta MK 7 - ST2 rear lights. 

 

As always I start of an image before

Before (both sides are the same ofc)

The first step is to remove the 2 x Torx screws as shown and a third screw inside the boot also needs to be removed. (just where the plastic trim meets the carpet), as your hand needs to go behind there.

Once all 3 screws are removed, pull back the carpet and the trim enough to get your hand behind. I used the carpet to "wedge" the trim into the position shown. There is one last butterfly clip holding the headlight in place. It is located around the two parts of the wiring harness that you can see in the photo. Righty tighty - Lefty loosy. BE CAREFUL NOT TO DROP THE BUTTERYFLY CLIP DOWN INTO THE BIW (Body in White) This will cause a squeak/rattle and will annoy the hell out of you, and you will also have to buy a new one from ford.

At this point you can lift the unit out of position, and swap out the bulb by twisting the bulb holder 90 degrees and same again with the bayonet bulb.

Reverse steps tightening the butterfly clip first ensuring to re-connect the harness. et voila, silver/chrome indicator lights that still work a treat. 

 

A couple of photos below also show the front indicator lights. I didn't have to remove the driver's side headlight unit, only the passengers to do this mod.

Hi mate my parents have a 2010 fiesta. They had a similar issue. 

 

We eventually found out it was because the car only had a "phone" bluetooth receiver and did not have a bluetooth music profile, also known as A2DP.

 

Bad news if you want to stream music from your iPhone to your car.

 

Good news is that there is a solution, as the iPhone uses 2 different profiles for bluetooth (one for phone and one for music) it means you can connect your phone to the car as normal for phone calls and then get a A2DP bluetooth receiver that will go into your aux. Your iPhone will then connect to both et voila, music and phone calls over bluetooth. 

 

I did this with my old focus Zs and used a HTC device link here. They are about £35 but i might sell you mine now i don't need it for a good price ;)

I have a 63 plate ST. I have just tried all combinations on my car, press and hold, click once and hold second, upside down etc etc. 

 

Nothing seems to work  :angry:

 

Any way of checking if my car is capable of this? And if so, does it mean going to a ford mechanic with a few beers and asking for 15 minutes and his computer?
