Q: How do I open the hood?

asked by on January 11, 2016

How do I open the hood?

It is very easy to open the hood:

  1. Pull on the hood release lever, which is located at the bottom left part of the dash, near the brake pedal. You should feel or hear the hood release.

  2. From the front of the vehicle, run your hand under the partially-opened hood and lift the auxiliary catch lever, which fully releases the hood.

  3. Lift the hood all the way open.

  4. Lift up the supporting rod and insert it into the supporting rod hole on the hood, to hold the hood open.
