  1. the smaller garages are always the better ones. still don't have a clue how he got in to the bonnet with out smashing the grille. oh well its finally done.
  2. got it sorted at the weekend. i rang up ford and they said it was gonna be about £220 for them to get in to the bonnet and to fix the problem with a new grille. i was not gonna pay £220 out, so went up north to see the family and my mum said the mechanic they deal with is good and knows his stuff, so i gave him a ring Friday he quoted me about £40 to £90 depending on what was wrong with it. i dropped the car off on Saturday morning, it was there for about 3 hours. got the phone call to say it had been done (happy days) went down to pick it up and he charged me 50 quid. he said it was just badly seized. he striped the mechanism and cleaned it then put loads of lube on it when it was back together. i would recommend this small independent garage to anyone.

  3. thanks for all the advice, i tried the long screwdriver trick, it didn't work, so when i get sum free time at the weekend i am gonna take the engine undercover off and try and get my hand it there, i might be able to have a feel around and pop something up. its so frustrating, i will do it some how. i might smash my grill and see if i can get in to it that way, a grill on eBay is only about 20 quid. i will keep you posted.
  4. I have a focus 2006 and my bonnet is not wanting to open. When i put the key in the front of my bonnet it turns left and right but it does nothing, It feels like its not catching on to anything. I have heard from a few ford owners that they know at least 2 people that it has happened too so it must be a common fault (stupid design fault). There has got to be sum sort of way of getting in to the bonnet with out paying the stupid prices they charge at ford. If anyone has any ideas please help me. Thanks.
