how to open a stuck hood
This is a tuff thing to do,but it can be done,you have to go under car at front ,reach up to hood cable and tug on it,have someone else pull hood lacth at same time.It can be done,ive,done it on a c230 myself.
Yup, like TST mentions you will have to remove the front wheel on drivers side and plastic panels to access the cable for the hood latch and pull. The cable is routed over the headlight to the top of the fender well where it is coupled to the release cable from inside the car. Worst case you sawsall the hood pins and replace them, inexpensive.
is there a way to do it without taking the weel off
Pop the front grill off and get a hack saw blade and saw the hood pins. Took me about 15 - 20 minutes. The hood pins are pretty inexpensive.
