  1. Boot Stuck Closed

    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.

    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
  3. Boot Stuck Closed

    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

  9. Boot Stuck Closed

    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
  10. Happy Birthday jgriff!

    Id be up for a meet too. Have changed a few things since the last meet but nothing huge
  13. Mk2.5 Lowering

    Sal what drop did you go for? How do you rate them? Been looking into H&R springs myself but was looking at the 40mm springs, as they will only drop the car 30mm given that the zetec comes 10mm lower than standard.
  14. Christ Lenny havent been on here for a while but im in awe of the job you have undertaken. You must have the patience of a saint to do that yourself, I know I wouldn't have the balls to take a job like that on. Fair play to ya lad, your attention to detail amazes me
