    If you just want the facelift (mk6.5) fiesta stereo grab it off of ebay or a breakers yard. Cut the bars out with a hacksaw and file back, it looks like nothing has ever touched it.

    Yeah I'd be up for sawing the bars out and buying this new Sony stereo

    BUT

    It seems quite wide. It looks like the buttons have been moved up..

    Or is this not the facelift stereo, if not then please can you tell me what it is?

    Thanks for the help dLockers!

    That is the facelift stereo

    The dash has been rearranged but the headunit is still double din.

    Thanks

    im also interested in this!

    i have the three part stereo and am looking to fit a dual din non ford stereo in my 05 fiesta, was told by vospers that this part is not available! am well it clearly is!

    but how much of a gap will it leave? does the gap left equal the size of the double din draw? or is the gap much larger?

    Hey - I have had the same problem with this head unit.

    I bought a new head unit today and the fitting kit to go with it.

    Removing this head unit is actually a lot easier than you might read elsewhere. Elsewhere people say you might need to use four 'keys' to remove the head unit, and that it is a two man job. I removed the head unit with two keys on my own.

    The keys should be available either from a Halfords store or from Ford directly - they are about 5.

    To remove this head unit, you need to insert the two keys on the left side of the head unit first (with the rounded end of the key outside the head unit, the most rounded edge facing in toward the centre of the head unit). You should be able to push them in far enough so that you hear a faint (but audible) click. You should feel a certain level of spring on the keys when they are in properly. You will then need to put one finger through each key, and push them outwards which will unclip the rear of the head unit. You should then be able to pull the left side of the head unit out of the enclosure by about 5mm-1cm. This will release the clips on the right side of the head unit, allowing you to do the same on the right side. Again, push the keys in until you hear a click, push the keys in toward the centre of the head unit, and pull. The head unit should then easily slide out of the enclosure.

    The bracket holding the wiring in the back of the 6000 CD unit is incredibly tight and has a clip brace holding it in. You can use fingernails (if you have them!) to lift the clip releasing the wiring socket. Remove the aerial socket and hey presto, the head unit is removed.

    If you have a 2007- Fiesta like me, the problem comes when you're actually trying to connect your new head unit to the power sockets. In my car, the wiring is very neatly but very annoyingly cable tied around the edge of the enclosure, meaning that the entire central dash unit needs to be removed and the cable ties cut, as the power sockets are underneath the enclosure of the central dash. I am still to figure out how to remove the central dash so if anyone knows it would be much appreciated.

    Halfords are doing 1/2 price installations at the moment so if I can't figure it out from where I am I might just have to book it in for a fitting.

    I know you posted this a while ago but am hoping that, in helping you... you can help me back if you've already solved this!

    Hi,

    Can anyone please confirm whether one loses the trip computer ability when installing an aftermarket unit into the fiesta?

    I would like to change my CDC6006 so that I can run an amp&woofer, but would like to be able to still use the steering controls and have the fuel economy&RDS on the converse display.

    Some double din suggestions would be welcome?
