    The story so far,

    Bought the car about 5 years ago and everything worked fine including Bluetooth streaming (which is the cause of the current situation), I used to quite happily be driving along and then decide to stream music from my phone hit the AUX button and away it would go. Then my battery died a few days ago, I took it to have the battery changed and straight after I went to stream my music, hit hte AUX button and "Line in" came up, when I hit the device button the option were USB, IPOD, and Line in or 3.5 jack no option for Bluetooth streaming. However the bluetooth calling worked fine ! Even when I plugged my phone in through the USB port and tried to use ipod it wouldn't play the music through the car speakers but it would show what track was playing on the head unit. I tried to follow various advice online about pulling fuses and resetting it but do you think I could find the fuse diagram for the fusebox that is under my glovebox......no, it certainly isnt the one Ford say it is in their online manual dload.

    So............. I thought I would disconnect the battery, "Please enter code" .......urgh do you think we have the code, no ! So, many calls to Ford and even a visit and they asked for an M or V number from the stereo unit. I managed to get the facia off and there was no such number, luckily I found another forum online which once I gave the serial number over someone came back within minutes with the correct code. So I powered her up but still no joy with the bluetooth streaming which is when I came here.

    I installed the new firmware without any issues but sadly it still will not play my music from my iPhone X over bluetooth, it will however now play music through the ipod function through the car speakers. However the facia will now not go back on, whatever I do it keeps popping off over the top hazard lights button and it certainly is not even close to being flush around the AC button or any of the heater dials :(

    I am about 15 minutes from taking an axe to the bloody thing so if anyone has any suggestions ................

    PLEASE HELP !

    Thanks
