HERES WHAT HAPPENED TO ME, WENT TO OPEN THE BONNET AND THE KEY TURNED IN THE LOCK BUT NO CLICK OR UNLOCK

IF YOU LOOK BEHIND THE GRILL AT THE TOP YOU CAN SEE THE BOTTOM OF THE SCREWS THAT HOLD THE GRILL IN PLACE, THINK THERES ABOUT 5, I USED A CHISEL TO CUT THE OFF, NEXT THE GRILL IS CLIPPED IN LEFT AND RIGHT AT THE BOTTOM, JUST PULL THE GRILL TOWARDS YOU, BE CAREFUL YOU DONT SCRAPE YOUR PAINT WORK WITH THE CLIPS ON THE BOTTOM OF THE GRILL, FROM HERE GRAB THE LOCK BARREL AND TWIST IT TO OPEN, JUST USE THE BARREL AS A KEY, YOU CAN THE THEN PUT THE GRILL BACK IN, MESS ABOUT WITH YOUR ENGINE CLOSE THE BONNET AND IF YOU NEED BACK IN THEN PULL THE GRILL OUT AS THE SCREWS HAVE BEEN CHISELED OFF

THE GRILL IS STILL SECURE WHEN DRIVING

I WENT TO A FORD GARAGE AND GOT A NEW LOCK, IT ONLY COST 36 SO WASNT TO BAD, THAT INCLUDED FITTING

HOPE THIS HELPS PEOPLE
