Has anyone replaced their two outer rear headsets with the inner, less intrusive one (so that the rear headsets match the Euro-spec)? For the base fiesta in particular. Just looking for a part number so I can place an order.

Look up Steve @ Tasca on here. He is a parts guy at a dealer. I had the same idea but it's not cheap. As I recall the smaller headrests are like $160 EACH from Ford :-(

Did it a while ago and posted hear with part numbers and yes it is about 167+ each
These are the Gray Recaro's so yours may be less costly ;)

The 60/40 rear seat does not like to fold flat when the center head rest is in the low position, because of that I've removed my center head rest entirely.

I seriously doubt I'll ever try to jam in five people so I don't mind.

Ford could change the seat bottom to make it work but until I can get something like that I won't use any of the center type headrests.

I'd probably just end up taking out all the headrests. The tall ones get in the way of the rear view and the short ones get in the way of folding the seat flat. The amount of time I'd have rear passengers is pretty small.

You guys know they fold down right?
I'd rather take them out than leave them folded down all the time. Makes it look better than having headrests folded down all the time. And in the rare event I got a rear seat passenger they'd probably freak out trying to fold them up...

Removing headrests will totally throw off the balance of the rear end.
Oh yes if you run with the windows open it may induce a weird Aero Push with the Headreast removed ... Plus you would get the whistling of air as it passed over the gaping holes left open in the tops of the seats that also create a Eye sore so the style police may ticket you LOL

Anyone know the part number for the non-recaro st center headrest
Shoot me your VIN and I'll give you the number that matches your interior, Ford doesn't specify ST in the parts catalog so the VIN is the sure fire way to get it right.

Steve - If you are Ford Parts guy can you do me a huge favor?
I had a major issue with my clutch (gear box came out) One thing that was also done was they replaced the clutch pedal/master cylinder assembly. When i got the car back it had the rubber pad on the clutch pedal (like the normal Fiesta). The dealer said it was the same part and changed out the pedal cover. In my head i think the clutch engages higher. Can you tell me if the master clutch cylinder is the same for both the normal fiesta and the ST?
thank you very much if you can get me this info.

He wasn't lying, there is only one part number and it probably just comes that way with the basic rubber pad on it. The really annoying part is that the tech wasn't bright enough to catch that.
