On my '95 I had...in the manual I seem to remember it saying to open the left door & U can pull a rod or wire there in front of the top door hinge. I forget exactly,...but I,m close! Either borrow someones glove box vette manual or phone the Chevy 'service manager', they don't mind giving a little free advice..... -TJ-

they sell a special tool on most corvette parts sites, without that specific one you won't have much luck getting the hood open.
