Hello, my name is Kevin.

99% of the time, the hood release is located at the drivers side kick panel where your left foot would be while you are driving.

Unlike U.S. vehicles, it is an unmarked handle either black or red in color.

Pull it toward you using firm pressure & you will see the hood pop up. Then look in the front grill area & you will see a tab. gently pull the tab with one hand & lift the hood with the other.

In some cases the hood release was in the glove box, but this is rare.
