Fd 2007 Set-Up Pics Please

Recommended Posts

I have bought a fd 2007 radio cassette player with amp for my all blue from ebay, I just need the graphic equaliser to complete it. I know that the 2007 was an extra on the all blue back in 1990. The guy sent me a surround with the amp in it and there is a slot where I think the graphic equaliser should fit. Could some kind person send me some pics of their 2007 set -up so that I can fit it as it should be. I also need the graphic equaliser if someone has one. Thanks in advance

Hi

 

Have you got all the wiring? If you car did not have the 2007 as standard you will need the hight spec loom and also the special connector cable from radio to graphic.

The graphic goes in place of the amp unit as it is an integrated piece.

 

I have this in mine, but since deleting photos from my photobucket page I have now lost them.

 

Graphics - just keep checking ebay, they turn up from time to time.

 

Also - is your radio got a keycode?

I don,t have all the wiring, it has been cut off about 150mm from the back of the radio cassette. I do have the loom to connect the amp to the radio cassette. I think you are saying that if you have the graphic equaliser you don't need the amp. My car has a Pioneer radio cassette with it's amp mounted on the floor behind the centre consul, maybe I will have to set the 2007 the same. My brother is an electrician, I will break the loom news to him but I think he will sort it out. I would still like to see how the 2007 was fitted in the cabriolet, I have the all blue brochure but it does not show it very clear. Thanks for the reply.

Yes, The graphic equaliser has the amp built in. You have one or the other.

The 2007 radio has no amp built in and thus requires one of the other to operate.

 

Remove you existing centre console tape holder and replace with the one that housed the amp.

Fit graphic in it's place and connect up, all done,

 

You may also have the supporting bracket which would be attached to the amp to hold everything in place at the back. Inever used mine and it's fine.

 

As long as you got most bits of the loom you can splice this into your existing loom if you don't mind cutting the wires and soldering in the new.

Good you got the connecting wire from amp to radio,simply connect from radio to graphic.

 

It's nice to have for original high spec looks and all that but the sound is tinny, even with the bass adjusted to the max on the graphic. Surprising it was a £400 option all in new.

 

Good you have the keycode one as there are two versions of the 2007 radio. The 90 spec one has keycode and green display and is the correct one for your car.

Thanks for the info.. I will keep an eye out for the graphic but in the meantime I can at least fit the head unit into the car with or without the amp. I won't use the radio cassette which is in lovely condition . The cigarette lighter that is still in the consul has never been used so the head unit isn't sticky with tar. It is nice to have the right gear fitted. The car is totally original now Thanks again.

Check with Fords mate, I am sure they will have it on microfiche somewhere which they can translate, or try Ford museum, there is always somebody willing to help.

Thanks for the pic all blue. I can see now that my amp housing is the same as your graphic. I just need the graphic equaliser and cassette dividers. I took a bit of a punt paying £60.00 inc postage but I'm well chuffed. Older and wiser, that's a good call, I will see what my local Ford dealer can do for me, I've just acquired my new Focus from them so they may look out a bit of info for me.

They go for good money nowadays as they are becoming rarer, so 60 is not too bad really.

But if you car is unmolested you don't want to be cutting wires!

 

Try and source a high spec radio loom (uncut) if you can.

I managed to get a new old stock one from an autojumble a few years back for a fiver.

I will try and source one. I'm toying with going to the simply ford show in a couple of weeks, I presume there will be an autojumble. Is there any chance of getting the serial number off of your graphic equaliser so I make sure I get the correct one.

Not easily as the unit has to come out.

 

But the graphic equaliser for the period of the MK4 1986-1990 underwent no revisions. So as long as it looks the same as above, you'd be ok.

 

But note for Mk5 onwards there was a similar graphic eq that looks different to this though.

 

I'm hoping to go to the ford show next week, if the weather holds up thou.
