Great Site!..Wife's car is a 2007 C280 4matic

Got her out of a jetta and into this nice ride........been into cars since i was rebuilding rochester 4 barrels in the 70's....
Her car is certified pre-owned, etc etc....had 16K on it in 6/09.....the info fo I'm looking for today is why the safety hood latch doesn't disengage? The Hood Pop's up when inside latch is pulled, the " T " handle sticks out of the grill, you pull it, but the hood doesn't lift.......everything i can see in there works freely, I sprayed some WD-40 in there; but something isn't clearing that horizontal steel bar thats like 3" long....Any ideas? Is maybe the cable stretched and needing adjustment for the inside handle? If so where is the pawl to adjust it? ,etc, etc?
Thanks in advance
