Hood does not unlatch when Release Lever is pulled
The hood on my 560SL does not pop loose when I pull the Hood Release Lever.
Have to have wifey apply upward pressure on hood as I Pull lever to get it loose.
Comparing my 380SL which works fine with the 560SL, I noticed that the rubber pieces
around the Hood Springs are missing on the 560SL. Are these what cause the
Hood to pop loose?
