  1. Apim is the module attached to the rear of the screen ( accessory protocol interface module ) and the acm is the bit the cd goes into ( audio control module )
  2. Then your life just got easier! You have sync 1 👍🏻 It will work fine with manual a/c. And yes it does. Definitely go to sync 2 or 3, it would be pointless going to sync 1 first. You would need a mic on top of the list already and it would be worth looking at what wires you have going into the apim and acm currently to see what else might be missing. However as Tezza has pointed out, it would be very unusual to have a 2013 without any form of Bluetooth. Sort of, it’s a much better solution that my original method, however the loom does still need repinning and wires brought in from other parts of the car. They should have little tabs on them, gentle lift them up and the pins slight right out 👍🏻 To be fair in sync 3 you only need power as well, just a different plug shape. And yes that is the one!
  3. By the sounds of it you have the bt/vc system instead of sync 1, this makes it a little more difficult but not impossible. I’d also be looking at getting the steering wheel with controls, the clock spring assembly and as much of the dash wiring loom as possible. As for programming you will still need to do the As build data and the changes to the bcm and ipc in focccus.
  4. Only real way is to dismantle the headlight and take a look
  5. I had factory original xenons before this and I always found them pretty decent. A bulb upgrade is always a good idea however I imagine yours are the visteon made ones, these suffered badly with the chrome on the plastic xenon bowl burning and becoming much less effective. If you look on the Russian forums this issue is covered quite a lot, they take the bowl from the new focus headlights as these are made of metal and don’t suffer the same issues, the difference is literally night and day 😂
  6. So this has been a slow burner as I struggled for information, the physical part of the conversion was pretty straightforward but keeping with factory xenons was quite the challenge! Fortunately with the help of a chap called grimbo from the Russian forums I managed to achieve this and here is the end result! It compliments the sync 3 and facelift steering wheel upgrade I did earlier 👍🏻
  7. No not between them. You need to remove them from one then insert them to the other 👍🏻
  8. Can do, send me a pm I’m not sure what you mean? The footwell lights have nothing to do with swapping in a new sync unit
  9. I agree, I wasn’t to worried about the adaptive part I just wanted the main beams to work, I split the light and dismantled it and it’s only a stepper Motor driving the flap so was trying find where the high beam signal comes from as presumably that would activate the flap and then return when not in use. I have found a way to make it work but it involves sacrificing my existing Xenons which I’m not prepared to do as that would be a good bulk of the resale profits gone.
  10. Hi guys, I'm looking for some wiring diagrams for the facelift mk3, specifically I'm after some for the xenon headlights. Im looking at doing a facelift conversion and don't want to downgrade my lights to do so. When you plug in the lights everything works apart from main beam, I've got the headlight apart and its down to electronics so I want to see if there is a way I can adapt my wiring or modules or whether I will have to make them work by sacrificing my existing lights.
  11. I found that out the hard way 😂 thanks for the tip though, I’ve only ever known to fill until it dribbles out! I’ve drained the fluid as I’ve been doing an engine replacement so driveshafts out and drain plug out, so I should be good to just refill with 1.7 litres then?
  12. As above really! The Haynes manual says to refill till it flows out of the hole and then remove just over half a litre? Is this right? It sounds a bit odd to me.
