SMI Stay-IN-Play DUO Braking System Installation - 2014 Ford Fiesta
Today, in our 2014 Ford Fiesta, we'll be installing the SMI Stay-IN-Play DUO Supplemental Braking System, part number SM99251. To begin our install, we'll first going to go ahead and pop the hood, find a suitable mounting location for the operating unit. Now, for this application, you can see there's plenty of distance between the top of the engine and the bottom of the front cowling. What we're going to do is set the box in position under here, mark the attachment points, drill it out. Then, we'll remove the fasteners for the plastic cover, install our hardware, and then secure the box into place. Now, in cases where you're unable to mark the mounting locations, hold the box in place and just run your drill bit into the attachment point. Now that we have the attachment points drilled out, we'll go ahead and remove the clips here along the front of the cowling.
Deka Lead Quick Disconnect Battery Terminal Installation - 2014 Ford Fiesta
Today on our 2014 Ford Fiesta, we'll be installing the DeKa Quick Disconnect Battery Terminal, part number DW05312. To begin our install, we'll first go ahead and open the hood and locate the manufacturer's negative battery terminal and cable. As you can see here on the driver's side is the battery and this is the negative battery terminal. Now to install the Disconnect, we'll need to remove the manufacturer's battery cable here at the battery. In some applications you could then cut the cable, install it into the new Disconnect and then secure the Disconnect to the battery. However, because the cable is so short on this application, by the time we cut it we wouldn't have enough room to fit it where the battery terminal will attach to the battery safely. We're going to install a new cable. We're going to remove the old or manufacturer's cable completely. Let's go ahead and loosen up the terminal and remove the ring terminal fastener.
