  1. Thanks lads, appreciate your help. Thought that would be the case
  2. I'm trying to sell a towbar that I had fitted to my mk2.5 focus. One guy has asked if it would fit his 2008 mondeo. Anyone here be able to shed any light on it for me as don't know Thanks
  3. Just to update, i have the lock problem sorted. As you suggested it was the lock mechanism that had failed. A visit to my local scrappy and a lock from a 2007 focus and we're back in action. Only thing that remains to be done is to cut the old lock apart so that I can get the lower boot plastic trim piece fitted back to the car.
  4. You're a fountain of knowledge lenny, fair play to ya. At least i have a couple of ways to try get it open now and know how to go about it. Typical of this happening and neal egan show in sligo on tomorrow. Will try a scrappy today to see if i can get the few bits required Cheers
  5. How do i get it out though, is there screws holding it in and if they are undone will the boot open? I havent gotten the plastic trim fully off as its still fixed where the two screws are in the grab handles
  6. What does the solenoid look like or where is it located. Pulled the plastic cover from inside the boot to have a look
  7. No wont open with remote or handle 😢
  8. Ok cheers mate, will have to try it over the weekend
  9. Reconnected battery and still no joy. Climbed into boot to see if anything was caught in mechanism but doesnt appear to be anything there
  10. Not that I know of. I just disconnected the battery and will try it in a few mins
  11. Went to my car after work this evening and my boot won't open. At this point I should mention it's a 2008 mk2.5 zetec s. When i press the boot release button i can hear it trying to open but there's something preventing it from opening. Anyone any pointers on what i can do or try to get it open? Thanks in advance
  12. Happy Birthday jgriff!

  13. No never bothered to set one up. May try and do one although there's not a lot to put into one
  14. Id be up for a meet too. Have changed a few things since the last meet but nothing huge
