#149201 Focus Bonnet Not Opening

Posted by yoshi on 20 October 2011 - 02:24 PM

got it sorted at the weekend. i rang up ford and they said it was gonna be about 220 for them to get in to the bonnet and to fix the problem with a new grille.
i was not gonna pay 220 out, so went up north to see the family and my mum said the mechanic they deal with is good and knows his stuff, so i gave him a ring Friday he quoted me about 40 to 90 depending on what was wrong with it. i dropped the car off on Saturday morning, it was there for about 3 hours. got the phone call to say it had been done (happy days) went down to pick it up and he charged me 50 quid. he said it was just badly seized. he striped the mechanism and cleaned it then put loads of lube on it when it was back together. i would recommend this small independent garage to anyone.
