    Default Fancy a laugh? How much do you think VX have quoted me to get my bonnet open?

    Almost considered putting this in the 'comedy section'!

    Cable seems have come loose at the bonnet end so just can't get the thing open.

    Wanted to get it sorted quite quickly (I don't really have the time at the moment) and I know VX can get you in quick so ......... how much do you reckon?

    They say it will be a new grille and new cable (why a new cable when they don't even know if the cable needs replacing?!)

    Sadly the grille has to been broken in order to release the catch, unless you have managed to release it yourself (it is possible on a ramp), so that's £50
    The cable is the most common cause of failure, it is rare for the housing itself to have failed, this includes the adjustor that will be required, so that's £80
    One and half hours labour, so that's £100

    If you have a Masterfit Service Card then you would be eligible for the Service and Parts discount

    I had this happen on my previous Mondeo, that came to £250
    I had smashed the grille in order to access the lock, initially the warranty company refused the claim until I explained it was necessary in order to check the oil level prior to driving the car (as outlined in the handbook)
