Fitting an aftermarket headunit to a Ford Fiesta
Ok I've been scouring the internet for the past 2 weeks and so far I have had no joy. I got an early-'05 registered Ford Fiesta Mk6 a few weeks ago but I want to change the factory headunit for a new aftermarket one, mainly because I want to use my iPod through the stereo.
Unfortunately, my Fiesta comes fitted with a Ford 4500 CD Player which, for those of you who are familiar with this model, splits the dash into 3 "sections" when the headunit is removed.
Here's a picture of my dash.
I've looked on ebay and other car audio websites and they sell adaptors for post September '05 Fiesta Mk6 models with a double DIN opening in the dash, but this is no use to me as the bars will restrict access to the headunit, etc.
Is it possible to get a new dash from Ford which will fit my Fiesta but with an opening for a double DIN adaptor, or is my only option to cut the bars from my existing dash?
I'm sure that somebody out there must have faced the same problem as me before. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks!
