Hello. My name is Mark and I will be assisting you today.

You have to drill out the lock barrel and use a screwdriver to release the mechanism. You will then need to fit a new lock mechanism, preferably one with a matching key for the car.

JACUSTOMER-2j47yorr- :

do you know anything about the ford fusion 54 plate bonnet mark , it does not have a lock barrel , the bonnet is at the front of the car , there is a release catch in the passenger side foot well but it will not release the bonnet for me to open it properly , that's why i need to open it manually , your info sucks.

I've been working hard to find another Professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.

I wonder whether you're ok with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.

Thank you,
