The hood latch on my 1990 300Ge is stuck. The cable seems intact. How hard can I pull on the cable? I am afraid to pull on the plastic release handle too hard.
well there is an additional Problem. The spring on the stud (on the hood side) sometimes stays compressed in one position, so that no springforce will be put on the latch. So you have to press a little bit on the front of the hood in order to open it, while someone else is pulling the handle.n2lw - 2/23/2005 10:32 PM
Thanks guys. I used the vice grips like Harald said. It worked fine. Tomorrow I will get the toolbox and the grease out!
