  1. Morning all I own a ford focus CL 2003 and along with many others my bonnet lock has failed. I have ordered the lock repair kit from ford but I can find a decent tutorial on how to code the barrel to my key and fit the new barrel and rod. The catch is working fine - the barrel and rod is missing. Can anyone help !! Thanks Liam
  2. Hi all, I've recently bought a 2nd Focus (1.8 petrol Zetec for the wife to pootle about in whilst I keep the diesel for commuting). Although I reckoned to have given the car a good one over I appear to have missed the fact that the bonnet in the corner near the driver doesn't sit right. It looks like it is sitting to low i.e. below the top of the front wing and it also catching on the top part of the wing and chipping the point off. I know a bonnet can be adjusted forward/back and left/right but is it possible to adjust the height of where a corner sits or is the issue like to be with the hinge itself?
  3. Hi all I'm hoping someone can help me with an issue I am having with my car alarm. For some reason my car alarm randomly goes off, this can be during the day or night. It always seems to happen when it is warm weather and not cold or during the winter. It did it last summer and has now started again June/July. Occasionally I get a warning light on my dashboard telling me the bonnet is open even when the bonnet is not open. This can happen whilst driving along randomly. I have searched forums and noticed that it seems to be a known fault and it is something to do with either the bonnet catch or humidity. Is there anyone out there who is having the same problem or has had the same problem? Is there a way of getting this issue resolved? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks
  4. Black Bonnet Lip??

    Evening all, Does anyone know where I can acquire a black bonnet lip or more specifically a gloss black bonnet lip for my MK7 Fiesta? I've been looking on eBay gumtree etc of cars being sold for parts but most have a grey lip like my current one. Only inquiring as I recently had part of my boot lid wrapped and want to pursue the gloss black theme, however they were unable to wrap those parts due to the material.

  7. Bonnet vents HELP

  8. 05 plate ford focus

    Hi all, My partners focus has been a little naughty lately first the boot stopped working then started sounding like a tractor (oil and filter changed) then the passenger door decided not to unlock when its come to open the bonnet to charge battery as been stood the bonnet catch wont open up. Please help before i pour a gallon off petrol on it and have a bbq.
  9. Hi guys, can someone throw me a bone here. Following a rather harrowing accident an object hit the front of my bonnet, the catch popped and the wind threw the bonnet back over and into the windscreen. Now the car's been a great runner, but it's worth less than a grand so the £400 excess to have it repaired wasn't economically viable. I've managed to get a replacement bonnet, new hinges and new support rams - all fitted without problems, but the latch mechanism is damaged and unserviceable. However the lock mechanism still works perfectly, so I've bought a new latch, my question is, how do you get the old latch mechanism out? Is it possible to undo the two retaining bolts and either lift out or drop out the old one without having to start butchering the lock? If anyone has changed out this unit and can give me some pointers that would be great. All the searches I've done turn up loads of things about bonnets stuck closed or unable to latch correctly but very little about actually replacing the latch, not the lock.
  10. Hi Guys, I've recently purchased a 2004 KA 1.3 Collection for the other half, it's in really good condition for a 04 plate but does has a couple of small annoyances (for me anyway !) Both the bonnet and boot Ford badges are missing, I know I can pick some up from eBay but can anyone confirm if both badges would be the same size, or is one smaller than the other .. I only picked the car up last night so haven't had a chance to measure. Any help or advice would be greatly received. Thanks.
  11. I need to replace the two screws that hold the bonnet latch/catch in place. (Not the part on the actual bonnet, but the bit it locks into at the front of the engine, with the hook-y bit.) I can't find any on any of the parts sites (though have probably missed them), and eBay only seems to have complete latch kits. Does anyone have a pointer to where I could get some, or a suitable alternative? (Though not "some nuts and bolts" - I want it to look clean :) )
  12. Hi there, like many others, bonnet open warning lamp on dashboard - am looking at replacing with a new switch...would like to know if a 'non-mechanic' like myself could do this. If so, where can I find the switch , any help much appreciated. Thanks.
  13. Mk6 Escort Gti Problems

    So I'm new here and this is my first post. I just bought an Escort GTI mk6, a few little problems with it and hoping any of you guys could possibly help. It seems the previous owner has messed with the bonnet release catch and it's fallen off as soon as I've touched it. I have tried a screw driver under the gap I. The bonnet and tried getting the catch that way but the bonnet hasn't released and I can't seem to get to it from underneath either which is a pain. Sorry to be so long winded but the second problem is when I was I. The motorway for the first time in it and it was perfectly fine but the second time about half way through the journey when I go over about 4000 revs the acceleration stops almost like the clutch engages because you can smell it so just wondering if anyone knows what's up with it so on e again sorry for being so long winded for my first post!! Btw I am planning to get rid of the ghastly wheels on it haha
  14. Yay or nay guys? Heres the link. http://www.ebay.co.u...=item416ce756e7 I reckon this looks pretty good, would of rather had a curve in the middle to accommodate the ford badge but a simple mod at a decent price.
  15. I am hoping that someone out there can PLEASE help me? I bought a 2008 Mondeo Zetec 1.8 TDCi (6 speed) from a used car dealership 2 months ago. To cut a long story short, the car has been back into the garage on numerous occasions for a couple of different faults (air con not working, car wouldn't start first time when turning key) and today a mass of white smoke came out from the rear of the car whilst driving along the motorway at 60mph. When I pulled in and lifted the bonnet there was (what I can only describe as) an explosion of liquid (see attached photo) Whether this is oil, water or coolant, I don't know as I'm not mechanically minded. I was able to drive the car 2 miles to the garage as I was in the area but wouldn't have liked to have driven it further! It did seem to takes for the engine to cool when I stopped after it happened! My problem is, knowing how useless the garage has been to date with previous issues with this car, they will take ages to find and rectify this fault, so I am asking for any ideas as to what may have happened so I can hopefully speed up the process of getting my fixed and back in my possession (on one occasion they had the car for 10 days and had to send it out to another garage to fix because they didn't know how to fix it!) I have attached a photo of what the engine area looked like when I dropped the car off today and would truly appreciate any help as to what this may be. Many thanks in advance. Les Johnson.
