      Posting in General Chat thread.   11/11/2017

      it has been noted that too many Members are posting messages in the General Chat area instead of the correct Forums. Any messages posted in the General Chat area that are not General Chat will be deleted without warning and offenders may recieve warning points if repeated instances are seen from that Member. There are plenty of different Club areas that encompass 99% of Ford related posts, please select and use the correct one. If anyone is not sure of which area to post something then feel free to P/M myself or other Senior Staff for guidance. The Moderating Staff are having to spend far too much time chasing this problem instead of maintaining the other areas of the forum.

  1. Bonnet Release Catch Issues

    If I'd known that a failing bonnet release mechanism would cause me so much stress, I'D HAVE CHOSEN A DIFFERENT MAKE OF CAR!! The release mechanism has completely failed on my '05 plate c-max. Ford appear to have produced a seriously inferior system following which they have no satisfactory answer to fix it! Have Ford thought at all about Health & Safety and vulnerability of car users when this is quite obviously a weakness on the car? Imagine, breaking down at night(it happens) on a dark country lane but not being able to open the bonnet. PLEASE PLEASE, someone offer a sensible solution to fix this problem other than climbing underneath the car, removing the plastic sump tray, and using a piece of wire fashioned into a hook shape to force the cable to release. This problem makes me pine for the heady days of the 80's and my simple but easily accessable Morris Marina!!
