Remove St-2 Interior Light

07 July 2014 - 09:48 PM

How do I remove the interior light in an ST2. I can take the front case off to change the bulbs but I want to get behind to have a look at the wiring harness for a potential mod.

Photos showing how would be great! Please note I have googled this and it is different to normal mk7 for some reason

Rain And Light Sensor ??

29 June 2014 - 11:49 AM

Does anyone know what the two modules are on my ST-2?

 

Im guessing they are rain and light sensors, yet the car does not have auto lights/wipers; but even if it did, the rain sensor would not be cleared by the wiper if this was the case.

 

Any ideas? And even better any way to switch these bad boys onto the car?

"Rain sensor" from the back, behind the rear view mirror

"Rain sensor" from the other side, you can just about see where the 2 parts of the sensor are

Subtle But Nice - Fiesta St 2 Mods

Hello to all,

 

This is my first post, I've had my fiesta for 1 month now and just wanted to show a few pics and discuss what I should do next with the beast.

 

I love it, absolutely love the machine. 

 

Let me know what you think. I also have 4 years automotive wiring harness background so feel free to ask me questions.

The beast on the day I picked her up. You have to clean her on day 1 then she is yours.

and last but not least a profile photo I took when on a long drive. 

 

 

So yeah thats everything up until now. I want to make mods where if i took it back to ford I won't void the warrantee and mods that i can act dumb with the insurance folk...."it was like that when I got it, I know nothing a bouts cars.. honest"

 

Any ideas are welcome.

 

Next mods to include:

 

Black wrap on lower splitter (to protect against stone chips and to keep the "subtle but nice" approach)

de-tango all bulbs on the car (recommendations on what bulbs would be appreciated)

move to a colder temperature with the headlights/main beam (again any suggestions would be nice) 

Change interior bulbs

 

MAYBE.... black wrap the wing mirrors but I don't know if this is going to look crap or not. 

 

Thanks guys.
