OK I have my Fiesta, 10 plate, brand new, sparkling white, problem is, the fascia inside for the head unit and surrounds for the heaters etc. is boring silver, any ideas of how to get the fascia off without damaging the face?

I will be getting the fascia sprayed professionally bright white, I shall post pics soon as I have it done in the next few weeks

any ideas for the removal???

Step 1

Removing grey trim

Pull the grey trim upwards starting from the front of the car

It is held down by 4 clips (2 either side)

Step 2

Removing lower panel

Under the stereo there is a small rectangular cover

This is held in by a one way catch at the top and a hinge at the bottom

Prise the catch open from the top

Step 3

Remove stereo

There are 2 torx screws and 2 hex head bolts under where the grey trim was

Remove these using a torx driver and a socket

Then the stereo is held in by 2 clips (these are roughly located behind the two buttons either side of the hazard/lock buttons)

Pull towards the rear of the car firmly

what about the rest of the fascia going further down over the heating controls etc??

Heating controls surround, vent rings, door pulls are all on clips and just pull off

Stereo surround has 2 torx screw and 2 hex head bolts, and then is release by 2 stiff clips (roughly located behind the function buttons on stereo)

Small flap below stereo has a one way catch at the top and 2 pull-release hinges at the bottom

The steering wheel trim has 3 torx screws (if I remember correctly) and then is held on by push clips

Sorry to hijack the thread for a sec, but have you seen the grilles on that website - http://www.carid.com/2011-ford-fiesta-grill/t-rex-grille-131818.html If they did it for the Euro fiesta you could change your car into the Ford Verve concept! lol

Anyways, back to the fascias - can't wait to see pics of it. Be interesting to see a white one.

Personally I wouldn't do the top of the dash white, however he had the ZS blue pack so it didn't look right having all white with a blue top!

I like it, but would probably just leave the radio surround blue, might need someone to do it though, don't think my spraying skills are up to that.

On a secondary note, just decided after 5 days since picking it up, to crack open the secret pocket under the radio, but they changed it, it no longer hinges, it clips, and has 2 clips at the to to help it clip on as well, shame, I kept my sat nav and cable in there, and bracket in pocket by right knee! :blink:

Guys

Have you seen this "water transfer printing process" it's magical, type it in you tube to see how it's done For those of you with deep pockets.

There is a guy on the uklegacy.com/forums who has done his Subaru Legacy BH5 dash looks well.
