hi guys

the other day i noticed the fuse panel cover was extremely loose on my BA. so eventually it just fell off and then the bonet release fell off so now i have all the fuses exposed and a huge bonet release with a cable attached infront of the accelerator. So has any 1 got a quick fix thatll last 2 months until the new car, also the bonet release is not woking now so if it breaks down im fu*ked

If its covered under warranty take it to ford
Common problem for teh bonnet release cable to break.
Have you stuck your head under there to make sur eyou just cant clip it back in?

no offence but the BF still uses the majority of parts the BA does. My bet is it won't be much better. My dads XR6t is an 03 and its had over 30 warranty claims, he reckons he'll get something else next time.

hey if youyr in wa i could do your bonnet cable and stuff for ya... save spending $$$ at ford.. im a ford mechanic so i know what im doing...
also, every month ford change a heap of stuff on falcons to fix problems as they occur so a brand new BF will be much more reliable then an 03 model
