Just to update, i have the lock problem sorted. As you suggested it was the lock mechanism that had failed. A visit to my local scrappy and a lock from a 2007 focus and we're back in action. Only thing that remains to be done is to cut the old lock apart so that I can get the lower boot plastic trim piece fitted back to the car.

How do i get it out though, is there screws holding it in and if they are undone will the boot open? I havent gotten the plastic trim fully off as its still fixed where the two screws are in the grab handles

What does the solenoid look like or where is it located. Pulled the plastic cover from inside the boot to have a look

Reconnected battery and still no joy. Climbed into boot to see if anything was caught in mechanism but doesnt appear to be anything there

Went to my car after work this evening and my boot won't open. At this point I should mention it's a 2008 mk2.5 zetec s.
When i press the boot release button i can hear it trying to open but there's something preventing it from opening.
Anyone any pointers on what i can do or try to get it open?
Thanks in advance

No never bothered to set one up. May try and do one although there's not a lot to put into one

Christ Lenny havent been on here for a while but im in awe of the job you have undertaken. You must have the patience of a saint to do that yourself, I know I wouldn't have the balls to take a job like that on.
Fair play to ya lad, your attention to detail amazes me

Shower of feckers, I wouldnt let ford do anything like that for me. Theres only one place in town that i will only ever buy tyres and get the alignment done as i know they do a top job. You know theyre good when the local BMW dealer sends their cars over to be done.

Just on a side note, did you fit front camber bolts?

Yes thats what happens Hassen, i have the same problem with my tyres at the moment and my car isnt lowered yet. Im not too fussed though as the tyres are on the car over two years now.

Does the camber bolts not eliminate your camber issues Lenny?
