This will be updated alot more over the next few days , just started this before work !!!
Will also get pics of everything

All things Fiesta mk6 Facelift , Most things will be the same on prefacelift but dont take my word as gospel , you can take my word for it with facelift though as thats what i have and strip down most days.

Guide : All things fiesta mk6 related - Tiestoooooo

Just thought id make a thread up with useful info in the mk6 ,made one on the mk5 when i had that and had quite alot of views , so im assuming it was helpful to some .

How to remove heater rings : (Facelift only) , to paint , DO NOT try this with prefacelift as these are screwed in where as the facelift vents are simply clipped in place .

Tools needed : Preferibly a trim removal tool failing that use a thin flat screwdriver coverd in a microfibre cloth to save scratching the dash.

The middle two above your stereo , are easier than the outer two , if you put your trim removal tool or flat driver in at the corner of the vent , and put your fingers on the part where you open and shut the vents , and slowly and gently leever the vent out towards you , no brute force needed here , they may be a little stiff due to the fact theyve never been out lol ,repeat for the other vent .

Now for the two outer vents closest to each window , these are a little tighter because of the foam dashboard , anyway same steps , but you may need to put your trim tool or driver in a little deeper and nice and gently ease it out .

Then assuming you want to paint the silver surround , there is 3 clips that hold it on to the actual vent its self , with your trim tool or driver gently prize all 3 tabs up and the silver surround , paint them , then there is only one way the surrounds go back on , so clip them back in place , and then re insert them in to your dash , they go in very easily , you dont need to remember exactly what vents go where , as they all fit in without any problems.

How to remove gear stick surround : to paint or wrap , First of all you will need to remove the gearknob , this is a simple case of twisting the gearknob anti clockwise , keep twisting and it will come off , then grab both sides of the surround and pull upwards and then it will be free ,

This will need to be done to change the gear stick toilet plunger to a nice leather gaitor , or wether you want to paint the silver surround on the gear stick surround,the silver surround is held on by 3 flimsy clips , this needs no effort at all to unclip .

No tools needed for this.

How to remove side indicator lenses : to change to clear or smoked These are simply just clipped in .

Tools needed : Preferibly a trim removal tool failing that use a thin flat screwdriver coverd in a microfibre cloth to save scratching the bodywork.

Start off on either side there both the same , So as you look at the lense if you put your trim tool in the bottom left corner or your coverd up driver and slowly and gently leever it out , again no brute force needed , they will just pop out , hold the actual bulb holder , and twist the lense anti clockwise , fit your new clear or smoked lense and twist clockwise , now there is a clip on the lense that hooks in , put this side in first then gently push the lense in , repeat for the other side .

How to remove handbrake surround : to paint or maybe fit the armster armrest , if you grab the surround from each corner at the back of the handbrake and pull upwards , its held in by two clips at the back and two at the front , clips are very sturdy , so if its tight give it a good pull , then you may need to manoeuvre the surround to get it round the actual handbrake

not too sure on your reverse bulbs or high level brake one, they are the wedge base but the bulb itself is larger than the W5W/501 type although i can't remember the number that is in mine now, think it starts with a 9
reverse bulbs are for definite mate
i have a w5w led bulb in each side ,
the original bulb is a w5w bulb with a bigger head thats all ,
the high level brake one is also a w5w bulb , which i have changed to a w5w red led bulb
i wouldnt put info up on anything i wasnt 100% on fella
thanks for the shout

oh ok i'm confused. i'm sure they were a bigger fitting lol, i've only ever replaced the high level brake light though and that seemed bigger all round, unless i got a different fitting

may have looked bigger as it has a bigger filament , i,e a bigger glass surround
but it does have the same w5w wedge base fitting,
because there halogen bulbs they need a bigger filament to produce a better light output ,
where as the led , smd bulbs have multiple leds and have a greater output with a small surround
