Mondeo Sunglasses holder fitted into the Fiesta!


Recommended Posts

Has any of you guys done this nice little mod' to hold sunglasses ?

I did this about two years ago and looks pretty well neat, not the simplest mod' as you have to cut the head lining bigger and chop up the old original Fiesta light surround and then fit the Mondeo light surround which has the opening/closing hatch, the Mondeo light surround fits the contour of the Fiesta's head lining perfectly.

Can put up a few photo's of mine if any interest is shown! or is this just a similar thread of dozens being done ?

I've seen pictures that I think you might have posted a couple of days ago in another thread of this mod. Its actually a mod I've wanted to do ever before my car was delivered. I sourced the piece from a breakers yard here a couple of months ago for €10 but I cannot bring myself to chop up the interior of my 3 week old car yet :laugh: How long did it take you to do?

Sorry for the late reply, strangely I thought this post had gone and deleted itself!

Took me about two hours to fit it, cutting of the head lining has to be accurate and wouldn't advise using a Stanley knife to do the cutting but use a smaller craft as used in model making, it's not that hard but it does scare the mind as you start the cutting, any slip and the head lining is ruined! Last year I took my car too Ford for its MOT and the MOT guy asked me about the sunglasses holder and was this an optional extra on the titanium! He'd never seen one in the fiesta and said it looked well smart and surprised a Mondeo part fits in the fiesta....loll

What version ? Now that's a good question! Thinking about it I reckon it's out a MKIII Mondeo.

The new Fiesta light surround will fit in the Mondeo hole as will the sound module for the hand free set up.

This is what the Mondeo surround look like fitted into the Fiesta head lining.

Half of the plastic surround fits into the hole but being that it's longer you've got to cut some of the head lining out, masking tape is used as a guide to where the cuts need to go, also the front mounting inside the Mondeo plastic surround is different to the Fiesta, so you've got to neatly chop out both surrounds and swap them over, it's not for the faint hearted but with patience you'll have a great looking mod that isn't in many Fiesta's.

Thanks - great update.

First showed this on a FB page and was asked about the gaping hole were the sunglasses fit! There's is no hole!.. well there is but there's a black plastic box with black foam padding which is clipped behind the surround, I only paid £10 from a scrapyard as you need to be sure everything is there and not marked.

If you wanted one from lets say ebay, then get one which has the black box ...This one is NO GOOD as it's NOT got that box.

You need to find one with the black box is still attached, you'll see it in the 'other' pictures.....
