CP-e FMIC relocate ACC for full function
I have reposted this to assist fellow sport owners with the CP-e fmic or those sitting on the fence.
This FMIC is a big bad piece of work but if you have the ACC..it was a downer.
There is a workaround.
I had some time to think over the ACC relocate.
Once I got over the inability to hide it behind the bumper cover due to a lack of room.
I took the OEM bracket, cut the long support extension off the back and a small mounting tab off the top.
These can be easily rewelded if I need to go back to stock.
By using the ball and socket OEM bracket you have the ability to adjust the vertical plane through the grill.
It then can be moved up into the right side of the grill and mounted with some regular stainless hardware.
Main concern but easy enough to do is mounting it square to the front of the car.
This is or does not look Mickey Mouse. It looks like it belonged there.
The wiring can be rerouted to the new location with simply pulling off a couple Christmas tree pins.
Obviously, this is not an Ford approved relocate (that will never happen) but it has served me perfectly without any issue.
Once you have the bumper cover off. This took less than an hour from start to finish.
Sorry, no other pics.
The pictures with cover off is from an much earlier install of the Velossatech Big Mouth (Pre-FMIC install) but I included it for a reference.
