Just got my ST grill for my Focus but having a bit of trouble getting the swivel Ford badge off. Can anyone give us some advice on how to get it off and onto the new grill?

Here is my new grill:

The screw looks like it's already had a going over, and I reckon it will be a struggle to unscrew with such weak thread.

Any help welcome :)

You need to unscrew where like you say looks like someone's had a go at it already.
If it's plastic and the screwdriver doesn't grip try heating up the tip of a blade screwdriver and melting a new slot into it.
The screw grips the front of the badge to the pivot which is the bigger bit around the screw, they both come out and there is a coil spring behind.
Look here for the bits inside as a reference picture -

How i removed mine was unscrew the little screw a little and it pops out, along with spring. If you keep !Removed! and !Removed! itl just not do anything, it should unscrew enough then you can pull it out. Try wedge spring out, that may be stopping you pal.

So you've threaded the screw? Shame you live miles away or else id come do it ha.

All i did was unscrew the screw whilst putting bit force into it and then unclipped the spring. Is the screw still fixed down? in thread? try pushing the spring out mate see where it clips on side plastic, be careful the screw may fly.

Seem to of salvaged the actual Ford bage, it stays on (although not very secure), I'm going to see if Ford will sell me these bits (the two bits on the right|) to complete the swivel badge so it works properly:

So, here is how she looks now with the ST grill:

Bit of a bitter sweet really, as now the bonnet won't open as if the lock isn't catching........today is not my day :( Has this happened to anyone else?

I did have trouble, i sprayed alot of WD40 in the key bit and catching mechanism. Put your key into it.. turn to the right a slight touch about 2clock position then fully to left 10clock then back over to right 3clock.

Sounds bit crazy but when you put key in slightly turn right then over to left as much and then to right.

When it opens spray a good bit of WD40 or something on the catch and that. Remember your way of opening it too. let me know if it works

Will go and give that a try shortly mate thankyou :)

It's odd because the lock is in the same position it was on the old grill, I just turn the key and nothing happens. Kind of worrying a little/lot :unsure:
