      Posting in General Chat thread.   11/11/2017

      it has been noted that too many Members are posting messages in the General Chat area instead of the correct Forums. Any messages posted in the General Chat area that are not General Chat will be deleted without warning and offenders may recieve warning points if repeated instances are seen from that Member. There are plenty of different Club areas that encompass 99% of Ford related posts, please select and use the correct one. If anyone is not sure of which area to post something then feel free to P/M myself or other Senior Staff for guidance. The Moderating Staff are having to spend far too much time chasing this problem instead of maintaining the other areas of the forum.

  1. Thanks guys, like you say there might be a trick to it - like a locksmith can hit a lock in the right place with a centre punch and all that.. I will let you know! Cheers Tom
  2. Update: I went to my local garage last night to see if they had any bright ideas, but alas after trying everything i have they were left as puzzeled as me! Surely i dont have to smash the lock to pieces, cut the door off or lever it open if i ever want to solve this issue - if so Mr Ford thats pants!!?? Cheers Tom
  3. Hi guys and girls - please be gentle its my first post! Our 99' focus refuses to allow you to open the OSR door from either inside or out. I took the door card off to see if i could identify the problem, but alas i've found nothing suspicious, other than the button to lock the car from within isn't 'right' - it does not click from lock to unlock or visa versa as it should, so clearly has something to do with the problem. I can peer through and see the arms of the lock mechanisim clearly moving, so its nothing as simple of the cable snapped, or handles broken etc - i fear its in the lock itself where the problem lies. So, my question is, where do i go from here, i can't access the screws to remove the lock body with the door closed..?? :( Your help on this one would be much appreciated! Cheers Tom
