Replaced a full bonnet lock and latch, everything was fine when bonnet was closed. Now when I put key in turn left it unlocks, but when I turn key right nothing happens.
Do you

Hi,

Are you able to get it open at all? It sounds like an adjustment issue. When you installed the new latch, did it work properly at first? Was everything properly tightened?

Let me know
Joe

Just need to open the latch, without destroying my front grill, and I don't want to damage the new lock or cable.

Hi:
I need to determine something. Are you referring to the engine compartment (bonnet) or the trunk area? In the US, the models I mentioned are offered. Additionally, when you say key, in the US that is only in the trunk.

I believe now I understand what you are asking. The key on your vehicle is behind the ford emblem on the front grill. Sorry for the confusion. That is something different than what I see.

When you turn it left it unlocks but the other way, which I believe is the safety latch, doesn't release. Is that correct? Are you able to get between the hood and grill when if first open a small amount?
