The release is on the drivers side, close to the parking brake release. Pull that. The lift up on the hood. A plastic tab will protrude from the grill. Pull that out and the hood will release the rest of the way. It is in the owner's manual. If you do not have that, it can be ordered from the dealership for around $10. For $20, you can order the w126 service manual on cd. This has the owner's manual on it with tons and tons of additional info.
