Is there any way that I can get into the engine or is it a trip to the ford dealer at a huge cost I should think , I cant find anything in the handbook. Tim 77 , 14 Aug Hedge End Hants Country: Look into the grill at the top you will find the bottom of 6 plastic revscrews, 4 you get two via the grill slots use a chisel and cut them off, Then one either end of the grill. Place the chisel between two plastic layers, gently lift , check and cut, one each end.

    Well worth the time and effort. I know this is an old post but I want to add some relevant info that will help others with this problem. Firstly I found this post and I followed the instructions and I managed to open my bonnet.

    To get the male and female sections of the star back together I removed the lock and the barrel and placed the cable into a vice. I lined up the stars and with a big push they clicked back together. Be careful fitting it all back together as it doesn't take a great tug to pull it back out.

    But once the grill is screwed back on it will be secure. Again this an old topic but after my experiences I think another update is required. I could not open my Focus bonnet. Tried the methods previously posted. After much work I found the problem was that the metal cross piece behind the keylock had come loose on the cable. To open the bonnet I followed the instructions posted by "philgc" and then I was able to get my hands over the top of the chassis section and after great deal of effort remove the two bolts one on either of the lock mechanism.

    With these reomoved the lock can be force appart from the cable release. This has to be done all by feel as there is no way that you can see the work area. The picture posted by "thatsitivehadenough" shows the front view, but the bolts that need to be removed are at 2o'clock and 9o'clock to the white cable support centre picture. You need to be good with your hands to reach them. Having now opened the bonnet the cable release can be withdrawn. It comes in the form of a kit complete with all the part to rebuild the keylock barrel, but do not try unless you are a locksmith.

    Instead use the old keylock assembly. This can be removed by knocking out the long pin and drilling the two shorter retaining pins. The kit has new pins. I shall apologise in advance for the lack of technical insight that follows, I drive a desk for a living and there fore have no idea how to fix cars. I have Ford Focus on a 56 plate, and had exactly this problem. Anyway if you have a long enough screwdriver you can apply the pressure against the coupling as direct by philgc from the outside of the vehicle.

    I did not have a ling enough screwdriver, however my wife had hung some net curtains over the bay window, the pole used to do this was exactly the right diameter to fit through the grill and, unbelievably strong enough to apply the pressure required.

    It took a few goes but I cracked it on the left turn of the key, here's is a tip, don't stop applying the pressure, turn the key to the right to free the bonnet. I was so blown away by my success that I stopped applying pressure and then had to try several more times before I could get the right turn to work.

    Once the bonnet was free, I had to remove 4 tiny screws that hold in place a "piece of plastic" immediately above the grill, once I had removed that I had access to the coupling that can be seen in the picture above. I took my short screwdriver and pushed against the inner section, the piece of white plastic that immediately wraps the black barrel, and shoved it quite hard into the housing I guess I got lucky, because the lock started to work immediately after this.
