How to open the hood in this situation


Asked by Oct 12, 2014 at 12:33 AM about the 1984 Mazda RX-7 GS

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Apparently I removed the battery from the car and shut the hood.  I know someone else has to have done this and would be most grateful for any help.

Most hoods are not on a button system but rather a lever that should still work without a battery hooked up. But if your lever isn't cooperating, try crawling underneath the front end and using a flathead screwdriver to push on the release for the hood.
