58 Reg Mondeo - Bonnet Catch/disable Alarm/rear Fusebox

22 January 2013 - 07:12 PM

The bonnet on my car will not close properly. I had to but a new catch (about £70) only two months ago and I'd probably only had the bonnet open twice since then before the current problem.

I don't seem to be able to lock the car without having the alarm on and, of course, I am not popular with my neighbours.

Ford dealer can't look at it for 6 days (!) so I decided that the interim solution was to remove the alarm fuse.

This pagehttp://www.fordmonde...mondeo-180.html
or page 174 of this page http://www.scribd.co...eo-Owner-manual point me to removing fuse FB10 but when I remove the trim in the boot (at the left hand side near the lights) then I don't get a triple headed fuse box - just something that looks like about one of those sections.

[I'll add a photo tomorrow if this will help.]

Any ideas?
a) how to sort catch
B) how to lock car without alarm activated (don't expect so from my investigations) or
c) what the fuse situation is.

Many thanks in advance
