Changing Fiesta 09 stereo to 12 stereo

Recommended Posts


I’ve recently come to own an 09 Fiesta, and wanted to upgrade the stereo so we could connect via bluetooth. After reading several threads here I decided the best solution would be to replace our stereo with one from a 2012 Fiesta, which came with bluetooth as standard.

I purchased a second hand stereo (AHU, screen, fascia), but only realised after pulling everything out that the cable harnesses aren’t the same, and I can’t seem to find a suitable adapter. Could someone please point me in the right direction? I tried contacting retailers, but they could only give me information on adapting for aftermarket stereos.

First of all, the bluetooth module is separate to the stereo and located above the passenger footwell. Changing the stereo/screen won't give you bluetooth.

I don't know what threads you've read, but any that I've come across about this I've commented that it's damm near impossible to fit the stereo from the facelift into the pre-facelift mk7 fiesta. This is because the facelift uses sync (basically fancy bluetooth with emergency calling etc.) that isn't compatible with your car.
