  1. Many thanks, Luke. to make the connection I'm thinking to buy on Amazon this APIM adapter for SYNC2 prepared to add a reverse camera. It's cheap and i don't want to modify the original SYNC 1 connector in case nothing works and I have to go back.... 🙂
  2. @Luke_Anderson Thanks a lot, I'm following this and others in the same seller. Just looking for one with the USB hub. Other question, I already have the GPSM installed, o you think the GPSM wires are already on the APIM connector, and also, I don't know exactly wich one is the ACM Main conector and wich one is the ACM accessory connector. Don't think I'm completely stupid, at the moment I'm repairing an electron microscope that probably is a bit more difficult than this. 🙂 Thanks a lot for your patience with me....
  3. Hi, all, I'm just following the guide to upgrade my SYNC1.1 (Focus facelit 2015) to SYNC 2, but I have some doubts. As my Car has two USB connections that actually connects to the SYNC1 APIM module, I know, one of them will be connected to the USB port in the SYNC2 APIM module, but, the second USB port will be lost? I see in the guide, the SD-Card connection from the Media Hub is rewired to the SYNC2 APIM module, so, as no additional connection for USB I suppose I will lost it. I don't want to use both USB ports at the same time, so, it could be possible to splice both into one?? TIA
  4. @samevansinworthi I'm interested, How much? Do you include the harness for USB hub?
  5. Hi, all I'm just making the shopping list to upgrade from SYNC1 to SYNC2 on my mk3.5 focus. I've been reading carefully all messages to prepare everything but this is oriented to be done in a pre-facelit model. I don't know if there will be so many differences on the wiring from this guide to the model I have. For example, I have the GPSM already installed under front mirror, and also I have the USB+AUX hub in the armrest, so I don't know if some wiring from this installation can be use. I'm still looking for an unit to buy, I've only found on eBay, some of them includes Media Hub and harness and some not. I suppose it's better to buy including the harness and hub because I cannot find the hub by anywhere, I don't know the part number of this. Any case, anyone here did the Sync1 to Sync2 upgrade on a Focus mk3.5 facelit 2015 ? I have some doubts about how to do. TIA Alpiste
  6. I have exactly the same noise, and I've been also looking for videos of mu engine to try to see if this is normal or not. Mechanics doesn't found any problem, but if you look for videos, all of them says this is an input shaft problem in the gear box. Mi car is a 1.6 ti-vct 125 hp from 2015.....I have exactly the same noise, and I've been also looking for videos of mu engine to try to see if this is normal or not.

Also whine noise in first, second and third is gone... but very loud when retaining.
  7. I have the same tapping noise, more audible when cold engine, but I'm still looking for the problem... I was thinking the problem could be the vct sensors, but I have no errors on the Ecu... Did you finally found the origin of the issue??
  8. I have a similar noise in my focus 1.6 ti-vct, petrol, but it's not as loud as this. Everybody told me that it's the throwout bearing, but when the engine is warm enough I cannot hear it.
  9. I have the same noise in mine. It's a 1.6 ti-vct 125hp from 2015. It's more audible when it's cold, soon in the morning, when the car is warm up the noise is not audible, neither when I start the engine a few hours after being used. It's doing only soon in the morning
