Ooh that looks tasty Daz =)

Lasthope, you can fit either double or single DIN stereos but you need the appropriate fascias and blanking plates for your choice. It depends on the style of stereo really...

You'll also probably need a loom adapter from Ford to whatever brand of stereo you buy and if you have steering controls and the stereo is compatible you'll need a kit for that too.

This radio has the 2-DIN format.

The original square and oval shaped Focus MK2/MK2.5 radio's have different dimensions. To install a 2-DIN format radio you need a 2-DIN facia or a facia adapter and a Ford --> ISO wiring adapter.

If your car has the square shaped radio and the new 2-DIN radio has ISO connectors this will work. The aerial convertor incuded in this kit however may not be correct as most Focus MK2/MK2.5 do not have a Fakra aerial connector.

Another point of concern may be the steering wheel control. Many Chinese generic 2-DIN radio's do not support steering wheel control. If they do support steering wheel control you will most likely need a convertor that converts the Ford steering wheel control (resistance) signal to the correct input signal for the radio.

If you want to change the oval shaped Ford radio for a 2-DIN size radio you also need to change the oval shaped dashboard panel for a square one.

 

Personally i would not change the Travelpilot FX for a cheap Chinese radio. The sound quality of a cheap Chinese radio is not nearly as good as the sound quality of a (€1500,-) Travelpilot FX.
