      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. Mick J - many thanks for the reply, I think I will be doing that next. I have just managed to get the 2 bolts out of the back of the catch after an hour and a half of pain and expected the bonnet would lift up with the catch but it is still solid. Do I need to heave harder or am I missing something? Any reply greatly appreciated as am trying to sort this tonight ....
  2. 2011 Focus with this problem. Pushing with a screwdriver hasn't worked and I've ended up smashing parts of the white plastic surround same as photos above. However part of my grille is already missing (wonder why ...) so i can reach the cable. How does this help me - what do I do with it? Many thanks!
