      Posting in General Chat thread.   11/11/2017

      it has been noted that too many Members are posting messages in the General Chat area instead of the correct Forums. Any messages posted in the General Chat area that are not General Chat will be deleted without warning and offenders may recieve warning points if repeated instances are seen from that Member. There are plenty of different Club areas that encompass 99% of Ford related posts, please select and use the correct one. If anyone is not sure of which area to post something then feel free to P/M myself or other Senior Staff for guidance. The Moderating Staff are having to spend far too much time chasing this problem instead of maintaining the other areas of the forum.

  1. Replacing Broken Stereo

    Hi, I'd like some advice about suitable replacement car radios. I know very little about cars, so apologies for being a n00b. My wife's 2011 C-Max Titanium developed a fault where loud crackling & popping was coming from all speakers intermittently. It was distracting and unpleasant while driving. I was advised by a friend who works at a body shop that it's probably the stereo that needs replacing. I've now removed the old stereo. It's an AHU DAB model, part no: AM5T-18C815-XF. I had a look on eBay but can't find any of this model currently for sale. However I did see one with the same part no. except it ended in PF. Would this be a suitable replacement? Would there be any missing or different functionality? Thanks in advance
