UK Ford Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hi there hoep i can be of assistance.
I would strongly recommend letting a Ford dealer do this as the barrel has failed and to open the bonnet it takes a few fiddly techniques. It involves loosening the front grill and drilling into the lock barrel to free it. This is the quickest way without causing damage to the bumper/grill or latch assembly.
There is no emergency release on thsi bonnet catch system.
If you need any further assistance, please ask, thanks Bob
Thanks for the reply.
Does the bonnet lift up but sticks on the safety catch or not come up at all?
Your certainly not the only one with this fault, the design is awful!
Ok iv never done this job where the bonnet catch is stuck hard shut, so ill opt out and another expert will be along shortly to advise.
