Any experience with a jammed hood?
Recently bought my first Benz. '82 240d. It about time for some maintenance, but the hood appears to be jammed shut. It looks like the handle for the release has been a little abused, although there isn't significant damage and the cable is still intact. The tab for the release doesn't extend from the grill when you pull the handle. I can't seem to get it open for the life of me.
Anyone ever had this problem? Is there any alternate way of popping the hood, short of taking it to a mechanic?
