Bonnet Lock... Can't Get In! Help :(

9 posts in this topic

Hey everyone!

Just gone to fill up the screen wash and we can't open the bonnet, the key just turns and nothing happens! Is this going to cost a small fortune to fix?

A petition is not a bad idea Brian, however, I do not believe that Ford will listen.

anything is worth a try though!

get onto bbc watchdog to see if they can do something about it!

would it not be easier to break the top grill and access the cables and open the bonnet?

i know an RS owner had this issue and various members (large convoy going to Ford Fair) opened his bonnet by removing the lower bonnet and used a large screwdriver.
