My X reg Puma finally died. The usual, rust. The rear axle was hanging on by a thread. She's in my yard to be used as a donor for my R reg I bought a year ago. The engine was rebuilt and lots of other stuff. Wheel arches and sills get done next summer. I have slim silver box in the boot of my X reg. What is it? There isn't one in the R reg. I'm assuming it's an amp as I can't quite get my stereo to sound like same in my R reg. Can anyone help? If it is an amp. How do I transfer it to the R reg?

Hi, sounds like it is the amp that came with the platinum pack option, which was upgraded speakers and amp in the boot.
If your R reg has heated windscreen and mirrors the luxury pack option, then you can not fit the Ford amp from your X reg, there was a conflict on the relay used so both options could not be fitted to the same Puma.

Given the age of your X reg it sounds like it might be an aftermarket amp or a retro fitted Ford amp, I don't know.

Platinum Pack Option not available with 'Quickclear' front screen.
1997/1998 (1.7 only) - Platinum 7000 Stereo/Cassette RDS EON 2000+ - Stereo Radio/CD Model 6000 RDS EON (single play CD) power amplifier and upgraded speakers with woofers (consists of an amp in the boot & 4 speakers in the rear passenger area instead of 2).

Hopefully you will get another reply to your question.

Post a pic - sounds like the upgrade audio. You may find the rear cards either side of the rear seat also have additional speaker grills. Very rare option but also quite difficult to retro fit to another vehicle on account of the additional wiring.

Hola Happy Kat. The R reg doesn't have heated windscreen and mirrors. After looking through specs, I'd realised that the X reg shouldn't have had that. I'm assuming then that it could be transferred. Ian,I will try to post a pic. The O/H thinks it's do able but I'll show him this first. Theoretically, I should be able to from an X to an R?
