I have a problem with my Focus 2004 bonnet (hate those stupid key-release bonnets so much.....)

I turn the key, the bonnet pops up a little..... but then is stuck at that point, meaning it will not open any more. I can push it back down again to lock it, and release it with the key again, but that little bit that it 'pops' up when I unlock it..... it will not open up any more than that.

I did try searching, but could only find bonnet problems where the key would not turn at all, or the bonnet would not open at all, I can't find any problem like mine where the bonnet pops up but then does not go any further than that.

Any help would be appreciated.

You turn the key anti-clockwise to unlock it to the safety catch. Have you then turned the key clockwise to fully release it? B)

Thanks, it worked. But it looks like I am going to have to sell my car. I refuse to drive a car that makes me look like an idiot. :blink:
Don't worry I did the same when I first got my focus. I spent half an hour looking for a lever to pop the bonnet until I decided to rtfm :-)
