Removing bonnet lock

The vehicle identified shows a Focus and you wrote about a Mondeo, so this is confusing as the Mondeo is a larger car.
There are some Salvage yards which let you pull your own parts. Call some yards and find your Mondeo or Ford 500, a sister car.
If you are fortunate enough to find one basically intact in front, you will be able to see how it is put together. It will let you discover the size and type of fastener used, and whether the rear hinges are accessible with the Bonnet closed. Sometimes if the release is jammed at one end, unbolting the other end of the Bonnet will free the jammed part enough to release.
Sometimes a good price on a Salvaged grille will justify destroying the original grille to gain quick access to all the mounting bolts. You will be probably saving 10 Fold on the time needed to repair this, even with replacing the grille.
I hope this will help you decide. Or if no Salvage yard exists, visit a Resale lot and look under the Bonnet of an identical car for what you need to see.

Ford mondeo bonnet lock

This is a very common fault on the fords, if i get one in, i generally soak it in WD40 then keep working it back and forward untill the mechanism releases.
If the lock is completely gone then ive had to go as far as breaking the grille off and opening it manually with a scrrewdriver, but this is last resort.

Good luck

Cant open bonnet of Ford Focus x reg grill operated key lock wont turn

Stuck lock, bonnet won’t open ,,,
You do not need to drill holes in the grill or pay ford £200+
Look into the grill at the top you will find the bottom of 6 plastic revscrews, 4 you get two via the grill slots use a chisel and cut them off, Then one either end of the grill. Place the chisel between two plastic layers, gently lift , check and cut, one each end.
With a wiggle that’s the top loose, There are two clips holding the bottom in place Put your fingers through the bottom slot in the grill, push down clip and greatly pull the grill, do both sides, It won’t come right out but your aim to loosen it., The lock is held in place in a sleeve with a plastic clips each side, you have push the barrel with a suitable item, this is to push it out of the sleeve and out of its housing, It may need a tap!!
Gently wiggle and pull the grill off

The lock is a ‘lock barrel along a shaft to a white plastic coupling’ this fits in to the ‘bonnet lock’
The security is at the coupling to bonnet lock in the form of a cross shaped plastic key
The key is fitted and held in place in the coupling, and when installed it’s fitted in to the lock, and once it’s in the lock part it will not come out, so therefore any jolt, pull, movement dislodges the plastic key from the coupling side and due to its design it will not slot back in so the lock barrel just rotates
To open you have to apply pressure on the shaft towards the left and into the coupling and turn the key in the lock barrel at the same time in a aim to get the coupling to catch the plastic key (take a few minutes) but it opens in the end if this is the fault, (alternatively remove the two bolts that hold the bonnet catch to the bonnet)
Once bonnet open remove the bonnet lock mechanism, then with draw the lock barrel, shaft, coupling, By looking in side you will understand regarding the cross key
Anyway you need to remove one of the catches from the side of the plastic key This way it will fit back in to coupling.
This is a brief description But the cost to me was 45 minutes, £2 for a pack of plastic rivets / screws, and I cached my bumper with the chisel £5 for a touch up stick Total £7. Well worth the time and effort
