Hello. 

Don't suppose you would have an updated link to this for a mk2.5 focus? I've been having a look around but my google skills aren't the greatest.

Thanks!

Hello mate

yes it's fairly easy mod just do one at a time and be careful when fitting the locking pins in to the ball ends. 

Once fitted it's a nice touch when opening the bonnet good luck and let me know how you get on

How did you go abouts with the bonnet hinge part ? Did u make a mark to its original resting place so bonnet doesnt move out of aligning.

How long did it take?

If you do one hung at a time then you should get away without marking bonnet I can't really remember how long it took the tricky part is working around the plastic trim on the wings and as I said before the small clips that secure the rod ends to the ball on the bracket. Good luck 😀

By the way I put the brackets on top of the hinge bracket and not In between as might be shown on some pictures
