Help me please!
I have a 2005 (05 reg) Focus 2.0 Zetec Climate. Unfortunately the bonnet does not sit flush with the wings when it is shut, there is a 1 to 2mm gap. The top end of the bonnet by the windscreen is OK so it looks like the lock mechanism needs adjusting downwards. According to the Haynes manual the mechanism should be adjustable for height (to sort my very problem) using the two securing bolts. However when I took mine off it clearly wasn't adjustable due to the locating pins and lock barrel cable. What am I missing? Do I need to adjust the bar on the bonnet that is held by the lock mechanism?
When I shut the bonnet without the lock in place it all fits perfectly. This proves that the rubber bump stops are in the correct position. There is no sign of mis-alignment on the wings, bumper and headlamps.
