I had a proclip mount in my 2011 that mounted just under the right center air vent. I just called Proclip and they tell me that the 2014's have a different dash layout and the mounts won't work. I don't have my 2011 anymore, but the ST looks to me like it is the same and would fit the older mounts.

Anyone have a 2011-2013 to compare with their ST?

The layout where it attaches looks the same to me, they didn't change that much. The part where the MFT screen sticks out is the only thing that is a different piece, size wise, everything else looks identical to my eyes.

Yea, that is what I thought. I think I'll risk it and order one even though they say it won't fit.

I tried to order a pro clip mount today, but they removed the option of the 2014 Fiesta after my conversation with them the other day. I've changed my mind and will wait for them to "announce" the availability of the correct part.

I fitted Proclip 854539 in my wife's FiST and it seems great to me. On my receipt and when I ordered it online it said 2011-2014. I can get a picture if you want. I also ran a usb cable from inside the center console and bought it up out above the interior temp adjuster so you can charge your phone.

Well this is why I like this forum. Thanks Bdud! Where exactly did you bring the cable out? Did you have to bend anything, or how did that work?

The circuit board where the USB and sd card live, unclips from its home in the center console.
Then I removed the kick panel on the lower passenger side of the center console, 1 screw and some clips.
Use a wire snake from the console side till you see it under the USB/sd area and pull your USB cable through.
I used a small plastic lever like the style you get with a Proclip and made a gap above the temp control panel.
Using a wire snake it took same few attempts to get down to the kick panel area, quite a few cables etc in there.
Once you are happy it is not interfering with anything, pull the cable out where it works for you.
It was not that tricky, in my eyes it looks a lot neater than just running a USB cable from under the lid or using a 12v plug in car charger.

A bit late to this thread, but I put both a ProClip dash mount and left side mount in my FiST. They are definitely the same part numbers as for the regular 2010-2013 Fiesta. The dash mount is for my Galaxy S4 that I even rigged up with a Nokia wireless charger that is hard-wired into the car. I just drop the phone in the holder and it is charging :) The left mount attaches to the A-pillar and is for my Cobb AccessPort tuner. I got an inexpensive ultra low profile right angle OBD cable adapter on eBay so I can keep the tuner permanently wired too. It all turned out very clean.

There was a bit of engineering because the Nokia charger is too thick to slide between the phone and the mount. I had to remove the front plate on the mount and the back cover from the charger and change around how things are held together. I am happy with it all except how the charger is attached to the mount ... hot glue LOL. Worked great. We will see how durable it is!

I have the Nokia car mount, but I don't care for how it mounts (standard suction cup style) or how it holds the phone (adjustable side clamps with foam rubber grips. I really want the drop-in style like yours. I wonder if I frankenmod the two into what what I really want.

Mine is definitely a frankenmod. It started out as the adjustable ProClip mount, but now it's fixed width. If I get a different phone that is different width then I will have to do some re-engineering. I do like how tidy it turned out.

I don't mount phones or things like that.
Even if you take it out or put it in the glove box the mount is still there.
This may encourage thieves to break into your car looking for things.
Around here we do have those kinds of break-ins.

Another member asked for part numbers, so here is what I did:

For the AccessPort I used these Proclip part numbers:
804253 - Left Mount (attaches to A-pillar)
215199 - Dual T mounting plate with swivel (connects Cobb holster to the Proclip mount)
Technically you could use the swivel mount that comes with the AccessPort and screw it to the A-pillar mount ... it has standard hole spacing. I felt this Proclip part was more rigid.

This is the ultra-low profile OBD adapter: http://www.ebay.com/itm/18121796049...iewitem=&sspagename=ADME:L:OU:US:3160&vxp=mtr

For my phone I used these Proclip part numbers:
854539 - Center Dash Angled Mount
246824 - Universal Adjustable Holder

You can see all these at www.proclipusa.com

Note that the A-pillar mount needs to mount as high as possible to get dash clearance for the AccessPort. That means locating it by placing the front edge (hard to see) as far up as you can into the corner of the little triangle window. Also, where the A-pillar mount hooks around the rear edge of the pillar there was a plastic tab on the inside of the factory moulding that interefered with the mount. I took a utility knife and carefully trimmed that tab off. You could also notch the Proclip mount to clear the tab. I don't know if this tab was a new addition to the 2014 Fiesta. It's possible that Proclip has adjusted their design by now.
