Like many vehicles today, the redesigned 2012 Ford Focus has a factory radio that is highly integrated into the dash structure and other electronic systems in the vehicle. Installing an aftermarket radio in such a vehicle is usually impossible without doing a total hack job.

But the 99-5827B installation kit from Metra Electronics makes replacing the factory radio easy in the 2012 and up Ford Focus when not factory-equipped with Ford’s MyFord Touch.

The kit is designed for the installation of single and double din aftermarket radios. The unique, rubber touch, back-lit buttons retain the vehicle’s hazard button, lock/unlock, and controls of the Driver Information Center.

The 99-5827B is painted scratch resistant matte black with matched A/C vents. For the variations of colors available from Ford, the VP-5827W (white), VP-5827R (red), and VP-5827B (black) A/C vents are available separately.

To complete the installation, use the XSVI-5524-NAV from AXXESS which retains RAP and gives you a 12 volt/10amp turn on. For SYNC equipped vehicles use the AXXESS FRST-2 for RAP and SYNC retention. The 40-EU10 is the antenna adapter you’ll need. If replacing speakers, use the 72-5600 speaker adapters to use factory connectors with no splicing or cutting.

See the video about the features of the 99-5827B on YouTube.
