Finally got it off took the under tray thats connected to the bumper 6 torx screws, then dropped the radiator, some time later squezed my arm through past the radiator and chassis to have an hard job unscrewing the two 10mm lock/catch, then pulling the bonnet up with lock/catch attached finally got it off and looks like the white plastic cross in the middle is nakered, is this a common problem on focus as i owned a mondeo mark3 for 3 years with out any problems and it had covered 100k before i got rid, focus has on covered 40k,
have attched a pic of offending part

Not heard of this particular issue I have to say. Check the panels of the car (unless you bought it from new) maybe the previous owner had a knock, if the panels are not original colour on undersills then it would indicate an accident...
