Can't open bonnet

2004 Focus Zetec

Key will not turn in bonnet release at all. I have tried WD40 to no avail. Anyone else experience this? Any ideas how to overcome problem?

You'll have to force it, I'm afraid. Keep working the WD40 in and turning to the left, bit by bit it should finally release.

I'm not familiar with the Focus, is this for the trunk release beside the drivers seat?, or just where the key goes into the trunk lock itself?

Some have a dash button to release. Sounds like the lock is garbage.

Re: Can't open bonnet

Where did you get trunk from? No-one mentioned trunk. Bonnet= hood.

If you're asking me, I knew bonnet meant hood, but he said the key won't turn, so I figured he meant trunk. I don't know of any vehicles that the hood opens with a key.
