I have a 2010 Ford Focus (mark 3 ). Yesterday my car went in for a service and the garage were unable to open the bonnet. After a couple of hours of trying with a screwdriver after reading a guide on here we gave up and took the car to our local Ford dealer.
They quoted me the following:
New Grey grill (as you would have to break the old one) £35
New lock £41
New Latch £60
New Clip £3
Build Lock £29
Labour at £96 per hour (!!)
We're talking over £300.
Is there another way around this. Could a non-Ford dealer repair this at a cheaper price or would they not be able to get the parts. Also would there be a problem with the lock as I don't want to pay for new keys.
Any help greatly received.
When trying to open with a screwdriver we pushed at the white plastic piece under the bonnet but this did not budge at all.
