      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.

  2. focus Bonet release

    Thanks for your Suggestion, We did try a few different ways of trying to get this open including pushing and pulling whilst turning the key but as of yet no luck. But most appreciated for any help in this matter recieved. THANKS. phil. I Jsut wanted to add does anyone know why fords had to change a perfectly good lever underneath the steering wheel or down in the footwell, To having to open the ford badge put your key in and turn it,for it not to work and having to buy a repair kit for £100. Sorry for the moaning but i think it's such a poor way of opening a bonnet.
  3. focus Bonet release

    Hi,I have got a 52 focus 1.6 Zetec. I have read most of the questions on ere and apart from one asking about the front grill i cannot find anyone else with this problem.I cannot pop the bonet lid. when you insert the key and turn it to the left number 1 postion nothing happens.Don't know if anyone else has come across this problem. I have been told that the mechanism is at fault and you can buy a repair kit for the lock from fords at a mear £100. But this is not force to sort the problem i have been told that if this does not work then i have got to have all the locks replaced but at what cost.???? Fords said the only way to gain entry is to smash the grill so that you can get to the mechanism.CAN ANYONE HELP ME. any advise is welcome. THANKS. fill (Newbie) :(
