2013 Hood will not open

6331 Views 13 Replies 8 Participants Last post by  heword7
Two weeks ago I opened the hood to add wiper fluid, and it was unusually hard to close. The usual drop from 12" did not work, so I actually had to "slam" it shut. Now, when I pull the release handle, nothing happens. The hood remains locked shut.

Does anybody have any suggestions on how to open the hood?

Well, I finally got the hood to open. It took a lot of pulling on the lever, and pushing and pulling on the hood to finally get it to pop up. I was careful not to dent my hood. It is still way too difficult to close the hood. I will have the dealer look at it in the fall when I take it in for an oil change.
So it does NOT latch when you just drop it from about a foot open?
