Au 2 XR8 Interior dress up info

Ok guys Im looking for some factory stuff to dress up the interior of my AU2 XR8 ute.

1) Ba Scuff plates Got them about $35 with plates and inserts
2) Chrome T-series/Fairmont interior door handles Got them
Part numbers. ERF22600B & ERF22601B $28 each
3) Chrome Fairmont tbar auto surrond Have it on order $7

I am interested to know if you can take just the chrome tbar button of an AU fairmont or if you have to buy the whole gear knob.

And the same for the chrome button thats on the handbrake lever


Also does anyone know of any other little bits you can take off the other models that look sweet. Pics are worth 1000 words

The pic attached below shows the chrome Tbar surround and button /the handbrake button

Re: Au 2 XR8 Interior dress up info

I wanna get some of the power window buttons with the illuminated arrows on 'em. Also the Momo gear knob (dunno if that comes with a chrome button already) and maybe the leather hand brake lever from a Fairmont and also maybe the leather console-box lid. Thinking about painting that trim/insert in the dash just above the passenger air bag spot (maybe in brushed alloy colour). Also thinking that Fairlanes had cloth-covered sun-visors which might be nice. Apart from that you already have most of my other ideas (except to convert my car to ESS, which includes the different T-bar trim with the mode button etc. and Momo steering wheel with the buttons.)

Steve.

Re: Au 2 XR8 Interior dress up info

I'd love one of those switches, can you give details o how you do this steve!!!

Sylox, just pick a colour scheme and run with it, outside, inside where ever. The handbrakes on the fairmonts are a little bit different due to them being leather, the button is actually a little bit smaller than the standard one because it has to slide into a plastic sleave that holds the leather around the end!!!!

Re: Au 2 XR8 Interior dress up info

I've looked into putting the illuminated power window switch's in mine as the HP model only has front power windows like the utes.

However after pulling apart the high series window switch's i found the wiring to be different and the switch's cannot be swapped. I'd love to have the high series switch as it has the auto down feature.

Cheers,
Gary.

Re: Au 2 XR8 Interior dress up info

TwinPiston: Here's the deal (note: this is an unproven theory as of yet, but I'm pretty confident. Still - try at your own risk at this stage :) ...

The mid-series cars (like XR's) and high-series cars (like Fairmonts - with the switch) share the same BEM, the mid-series just don't make use of all it's featues, so basically the BEM should already have the half-height function - it's just a matter of connecting the switch to it. The half-height mode is activated when pin B19 of the BEM is shorted to ground. So you simply need to connect a wire from the pin on the BEM to one side of the switch, then from the other side of the switch to earth - simple! :)

I'm gonna test this first just by shorting the pin to earth manually and see if it works, then I'll buy the switch. I was thinking I'd either...

A) Replace the centre (eustuceon - {SPELLING?!?!]) panel of the dash with one from a LPG model or a column shift ute, then I could place the button where the ECON or LPG switches would usually go (to the right of the centre air vents), or...

B) Put the switch where my door-lock switch currently is, and relocate the lock switch (which is a good thing to do for security purposes anyway).

I'll let you know when I figure out more (like which pin is B19! ;-)

XR_Strider_Guy: I really gotta get to bed right now as it's a long day at work for me tomorrow :) - but I'd like to discuss this more with you, as according to my workshop manual with the circuit diags of switches etc. it can be done. I'll post more info tomorrow...

Later.

Re: Au 2 XR8 Interior dress up info

OK, to follow up on those switches...

According to the schematics in the manual, the wiring should all be compatible. The passenger side should be no prob (except the extra terminal(s) for the bulb). As for drivers side, the switch assy appears to be a single unit with all 5 switches contained in it, so you'd end up with 2 extra switches plus a rear window lock switch which would be redundant (until you upgrade your rear windows to power :) but assuming this is ok... The circuitry in the switches looks totally compatible the way I read it. The pinouts may be different, so you may have to swap some wires around in the multi-plug (or pull the plug off and use individual spades), but it should work. The only way I can figure the auto-down, is that is must be a fundtion of the actual switch itself (?) - maybe controlled by a bi-metal contact strip which locks down until heat from the current overload when the motor stops releases it - do you know if this is how it works? If so, then you should also have that function with no probs.

You've obviously pulled the switch apart, so you'd have a better idea than me, this is just what I figure from circuit diags. in the Ford AU2 service manual. It'd be great if we can figure out a way this can be done.

Whaddya reckon?

Re: Au 2 XR8 Interior dress up info

Is it strange that I have the lights in my XR8 yet my bro in an XR8 of 2 months different build hasn't!!!

I will look into this pin situation as well, thanks steve.
