Hood latch stuck bmw 760li v12-6.0l hoods 2007

Q: Hood latch stuck

asked by on February 24, 2016

My car's hood latch is stuck.

If your car’s hood latch is stuck, that may be a sign that the latches have failed, or perhaps the cable that unlocks it has snapped. As a problem like this may not be immediately obvious to diagnose, I would recommend having a professional technician, such as one from YourMechanic, look at the vehicle’s latch and cable mechanisms to see what components are in need of repair.
