  1. Thank you so much for this information. With what's going on at the moment I think it'd be best I ordered some online, however I can't get hold of anyone at Ford Parts UK. So it looks like I will have to order the alternative. Please could you take a look at the below and see if you think these will work? https://bit.ly/342Y3cN
  2. Hi all, I am trying to source 8 fitting bolts, these are the torx head ones that bolt into the rear hubs to secure it in place. Please could someone help me find where to buy these things as I cannot find them anywhere Ford Focus Mk2.5 2008
  3. Thanks mate, do you have any idea how they connect as there are two cables on each side of the isolator. I'm assuming you just plug the RCA cable into one end and the camera into the other end and thats it? Leaving the extra two cables untouched? Please let me know if you think this is correct πŸ™‚
  4. @Lenny Sorry mate another question, πŸ˜… Do you have a link to a ground loop isolator? As I get some distortion and I am trying to find one on ebay to fix it but am getting mixed results as they are all different πŸ˜‚.
  5. Yes that makes sense, so to give it some context I removed the fuse from F100 and then probed the left side which was giving 12v and probed the right side which was giving 5v so I put the piggyback fuse in so the top pin of the piggy back goes into the 12v side. I was just confused about the 5v reading so it must be just residual power from the ecu. Also great thanks for getting that picture πŸ™‚ I did have a scare after I fitted it all though as when I turned the key I heard a click and everything lost power, I then saw I didn't tighten the battery terminals, so after tightening them it was all fine and good πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
  6. @Lenny Got another question sorry, in the F100 slot my multi meter reads that the left side of the fuse slot is 12v and the right side is 5v. Can you shed some light on this please with all your wisdom and knowledge πŸ˜‚
  7. It's all good ☺️, I just appreciate the help!!!
  8. It's not a connects2 one but it looks exactly the same as your one in the photos. I will give it a try but tightening the middle botls first
  9. @Lenny Did you happen to have a small gap after fitting the new handle/reverse camera?
  10. Awesome, thanks Lenny I appreciate the help!
  11. @Lenny Awesome, the explanation about a capacitor helped alot. Also once I have it all set up I would very much appreciate the tuning help!! Regarding the new fuse board, I thought about connecting it using a piggey back fuse but I would personally prefer to connect it to the battery with a relay, from what I have explained previously do you think it would be okay to do so? (taking into account all the ratings are correct, fuse etc) Also all your guides are amazing, very helpful and I've referred to them alot with other small projects I have done😊 @Dee_82 I found that out the hard way when I fitted a new dab aerial which didn't ground properly πŸ˜…got it sorted in the end though πŸ™‚
  12. Awesome, putting it that way, it sounds better to have the amplifier on a separate line. As for the aditional fuse board I want that to come live with the ignition so I was going to put a relay before the additional fuse board as seen in the image, now do you think it will be okay to put this relay behind the glove box right before the new additional fuse board as that is where I would fit it ? From my understanding this should be fine but would love to hear your thoughts? Also when running the cable through the firewall, do you think it would be okay to run it through the grommet hole already there or should I make another hole in the grommet? Or does it not matter and I am over complicating it lol πŸ˜‚
  13. @Lenny I was looking at fitting an amplifier and thought why not just add an extra fuse box as it will make all other aftermarket wiring much neater along with other devices I have wired up. @Dee_82 I am said 40amps to be better safe than sorry, I will definitely not be going near that πŸ™‚
  14. I'm happy to do it shouldn't take that long, and in total I'd like the fuse box to be able to take a maximum draw of 40amps
