No need for special tools. Just be careful when dismantling the electromagnetic cluch: there is a spacer for proper operation. Everrything else is easy. Don't clean internals as you'll be needing the oil inside. That is special oil and add some (cca 20-30 ml); the rest will be suplied when regassing the system.

Hello,

I replaced the genuine basic audio system by the platinum system with amplifier audio filter aud sub-woofer
i have the bigger part of the genuine loom,

but it missing the connector of the power supply and the connector of the blue/purple little wire


i search and read electrical diagram to try to understand it,

i connected the power supply of the amplifier to the wire of the heated windscreen protected by a 40 amp fuse ....




but .... i have a problem ... the amplifier consumes power when the 6000cd radio is off and the ignition is off :? :?

i take the wrong wire ? :?:
or the amplifier have a problem ?

Don't know if it will help, but have a look at my thread for my FRP as I put a Platinum system in it. I did it the original way and unplugged the heated screen from behind the radio, and then plugged in the amp.

(i read your FRP thread ... You did a great job, look better than new :grin: )

If I understood correctly to use the platinum system, i need Disconnect the power supply of the heated screen ?

On the picture I see 2 wire, a red (i think its power supply) and an other ...

Hi Alex - from memory it's a perm live (thick red one) and an ignition live (black one). There is also an earth that connects to the body within a few inches of the amp in the boot.

The FRP is away getting serviced at the moment, so I'll take some pictures for you when I get it back

Nice effort there! May I trouble you for the location tool dimensions, please?

On sidenote, you really need to put some spacers at rear or do the rear disc conversion to widen the rear track :wink:

And how are those GE bulbs? Are they as good as they claim them to be?

Thanks :grin:

1) You want the dimension of this ?

Image

i can take them, but on my model it's not the perfect dimension on the diameter, ... it's an experiment replica of

https://www.alibaba.com/product-detail/ ... 69408.html


you have a lathe to made it ? maybe i can make some other subframe tool ...


2) the widening of the rear track is in the to do list :wink:



3) How are those GE bulbs ?

How you can see, they aren't look light xenon 6000k,
but it's lightly brighter than the original

and it's a lot more efficient than classic bulb for the hight beam

i have buy these on https://auto-lamp.de/de/

but for low beam i have 6000k xenon with alloy balast (ebay)

if you can look the result of the xenon

its very different part look to the original, it's use hight pressure system from bilstein
associated with full powerflex bushes, it's really change the car !

but it's not the most confortable combo for a road car .....

Hi,

The S1600 intake finaly works after a few modification
Image

a custom alternator bracket
because this modified genuine is to close

Image

and i change the throttle cable and made a news throttle cable bracket

1.7 lhd genuine cable is too short .... maybe rhd is too long ???

so i search the best and simple way .... lhd zs fiesta/1.6 puma works fine ... just need a custom throttle bracket inspired by an 1.8 td mondeo bracket ....

pictures is coming soon

hello :grin: ,

I continue my monologue



news part are mounted on the Puma

20mm rear billet spacers

25mm front spacers eibach, why this choice ?? (20mm is too thin, need to cut the wheel stud, and i don't want, and i'm afraid 30mm is too much outside the wheel arch :? :? )

Image

a set of mudflap
Image

have ordered some cool strut brace
Image

Image

and i buy some spare part ... engines, gearbox, ect

and i have other goodies in wait for this puma ... :wink:
