Hello, When you pulled the inside handle, is hood open slightly>?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No not at all. On the passenger side the hood is down a little pass where it's supposed to be regularly but that's not a issue
Expert:  Randall replied 1 year ago.
ok, if hood did nothing when you pulled the release? it is supposed to open slightly so you can slide the secondary release, or safety as they call it, so, when you pulled the inside handle, hood was to open slightly. If not? then you need to pull that handle again, hold it, then have another person try hitting on front ceneter edge of the hood, it could be slightly stuck and also try pushing down hard on front edge of hood while inside handle is pulled, If it will not pop, then something is stuck and not much you can do without a shop, they will have to do what they can to trip the hood, if you can get it to pop by doing what I mentioned? then you go to the release lever, it is yellow but on the passenger side, Here is a file showing how to open the hood. Its not possible for me to say if say cable is broken but.. I am thinking and hopeing hood just stuck some so have to do the 2 person try as mentioned
