Hi folks,

A very good friend of mine has a a wee problem with his Fusion ('02 plate diseasal).

The bonnet release arm under the grill has snapped off - the previous owner has tried bodging it with a jubilee clip, a bit of wire and a couple of screws.

You sort have to reach under, grab it and pull it across whilst trying not to lift the bonnet too high...fine for somebody like Flat Stanley - but not real human hands!

How difficult is it to replace it?
Can he just replace the arm, or is it a whole catch change job? (By "he"I mean probably me)

I had a very quick look, but couldn't see it well enough.

Have something to contribute?

Just get a new one at the dealer, pry the old one of (it's just clicked on, you can see it if you look behind the radiator/beneath the bonnet locking mechanism) Push the new one in through the hole just above the bumper and click it on. That's it!

it's that simple if we're talking about the same thing, the plastic lever. And i think we are if i read your first post correctly.

I think we are on the same page - the arm snapped, the rest of it is fine

Thanks again :-)
