Cant open hood on 2007 C230
My original post in the car care section was about storing the car for winter, but now I have anothe problem.
The hood latch (pops out of the front grill) broke and came off from my 2007 C230. The hood comes up about half an inch but will not open all the way, since I do not have a latch to pull on. Tried to unlatch by putting fingers through the grill but did not work. Does anyone know the exact art of opening the hood when the latch is broken? Also, is it fairly easy to install a new latch once I get the hood open? I'd hate to take it to the dealer (well the battery is dead so, can't even drive it. need to open the hood for a jump).
Any advise will be appreciated...
