Recommended Posts

Hello everyone I have a fiesta mk7.5 2013 titanium and unfortunately the car doesn’t have a stereo with bluetooth and DAB and i’m thinking of upgrading it. firstly what parts do I need? And regarding the microphone can i locate is somewhere instead of cutting the upholstery? If yes what do you suggest? 
 

many thanks

I thought all facelifts came with SYNC (bluetooth)? Either way it's a separate module above the passenger footwell. Search "sync module fiesta mk7" on ebay and you'll get loads come up.

DAB requires a head unit change, I made a thread a few years back when I carried out the upgrade to my fiesta.

In the uk the studio and style didn’t have bluetooth, my style does but only because the first owner paid for optional extra. The post is from Malta where the specs maybe totally different

U fortunately yes in Malta the vehicles were brought from germany and the titanium wasn’t standard to have Sync and bluetooth with that extras i had to spend extra 2k euros and still the car wasn’t cheap to buy 😕

You need the loom (is a pain to find one) and a bluetooth module.

Also the head unit need to have the conector for the bluetooth.

You have usb?

If you have usb from factory like i did and no bluetooth, you need to change the head unit, "our" usb are connect direct to head unit, with bluetooth module, usb is connect direct to BT module.

I upgrade to satnav Sony radio, and manage to find a bluetooth loom with module.

The "old" usb/aux loom, need to be removed, so the loom of bluetooth can pass.

Therefore since i have the usb and aux together all i need to change is the head unit and buy the BT module only ? And change the loom that i currently have of the usb to the one of BT ?

The first photo is your head unit, with the usb directly connect to the head unit.

Second photo is the head unit with connector for the BT loom.

Even if you connect your usb loom directly to BT, will not work, you need the loom from module to head unit.

 

What i did before get BT, i change my facia, lcd, and cover to Sony Sat-nav and leave the head unit because i need usb, much later i manage to find a complete loom of BT, come even with the microphone loom.
