If you will open your trunk, you will see a round handle lever you pull on to release the seat. There should be one on each side. They are located near the top of your trunk.

The bonnet lock on focus 1600, behind the Ford badge on front grille, turns both ways but the bonnet won't lift.

This sounds like the locking mechanism is disconnected from the lock cylinder if you have a trunk release button try that it should work if not you must take out the back seat and get in the trunk to pull on the safety release plastic handle and cable you always saw when the trunk was open its the car shaped or t shaped handle with the cable this will open the trunk if you have fold down seats this is easy if not you need someone small enough with a flashlight to get it done

Trunk will not open,can the fold down seat be released manually from inside the car.

The key lock mechanism may not be working or connected.
Or, the power door lock, if equipped, may not have power to the solenoid that releases the trunk, or the cable to the release is broken or not adjusted correctly.

Good luck on this repair.
