Hi,i know it was a while ago,but how did you get over the mk6 having a single plug and the Mondeo having 2?Also did you straighten out the sunglasses holder as the one i got hold of is curved?

I heated up the the shades holder and straightened it a bit,

The steering wheel and air bag are from a mk7 transit and only have one plug, not a mondeo :D

Did you use a hair drier or heat gun to heat it up?

Heat gun on that one, it was pretty easy to straighten :D

This one took a bit more work though :D

Larger ones the mk7

Going to see if I can get the ply back down on the floor tonight too and maybe some lights back in the rear too!


Are these just a straight swap mate? no need to make a adapter to make it fit?

No, it only because the mk7 selectors a bit longer it suits the angle better
