    Hi guys,

    i'd like to get an mp3 capable stereo to replace the RDS6000 in my yr2000 Focus.

    However, the Focus stereo is a different size from normal stereos.

    Anyone have any tips on fitting etc??

    It's very easy to do, and you have a few options:

    1. Blanking Plate
    2. Scosche Adaptor
    3. Double Din HeadUnit

    I went with a Scosche FM1375 surround, as it fits in nicely and supports the HU.


    Then you'll need either an Ford steering/stalk control adaptor or a normal Ford ISO adapter depending if u want to use the steering wheel remote.
    If you go with the Ford steering/stalk control adaptor then you'll need the remote adapter for your headunit as well.

    Plus an Aerial adaptor and Ford HU removal tools.

    Id pop over to the FFOC, and look in the ICE form there. Some great tips for getting your ICe sorted. Im planning on getting a scosche adaptor, just trying to find somewhere to get one!

    Have a look on Ebay, I got mine on there for about £14. Took a while to get here as it was shipped from the US, but at least it was official and came with the support.
