Ford Focus Bonnet Lock

Recommended Posts

So I'm following this video to replace the lock on my ford focus bonnet. Everything has gone swimmingly but when I try and turn the cross in the middle (as shown in pic) with a screwdriver its not moving (9.45 in the video). Am I doing something wrong? is there another way to do this? Tried everything I can think of. Pliers are too big to get in the hole. Tried using the housing from the lock to attach and turn. No luck. Tried using a kitchen spoon! I'm not mechanically minded at all but I want to do this. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Apply a little downward pressure on the bonnet whilst trying to turn and it'll turn easier.
