Get a helper and have them pull the hood release inside while you bang on the front center of the hood with the heel of your hand. Once the hood pops spray the catch with white lithium grease so it won't stick again. HTH. -Jim

This mdel has no interior hood release

If no helper is available, pull the interior hood release lever and jam a screwdriver, flashlight or other similar item between the raised hood release lever to hold it in the open position. You can then simply pull the hood up out of the first catch.

The interior hood latch pull will on move. I cannot open hood as it will not pop up as it has done in the past. What do I do?
