Upgrading Stereo

Recommended Posts

Looking to upgrade my current Sony 6CD Stereo to a touch screen dvd player one.

Can anyone link me to a decent fascia and do i need any loom adapters?

You will need a Sony loom adaptor and remote interface so the steering column buttons will work-

(Check for compatability).

Also you'll need a double din fascia as the standard Ford radios are not a true double din size-

The old fascia is a doddle to remove.

Remove the radio and you'll see two screws in plastic clip nuts.

Remove the screws and pull the fascia off unclipping as necessary.

I'd remove the clip nuts too so everything sits nice and flush.

I recommend a set of torx screwdriver bits as pretty much everything is torx on Fords.

You may find any radio cages supplied with aftermarket radios tend to be too deep for the Focus so best to test fit the cage first and be prepared to find one with a 'cut out' back edge or get handy with tin snips if need be.
