PM bimmersport, i think there's a way u can do it with a screw driver through the front grill. I seen him do it before.. :)

not an e30, jus the hinges are in front.


IF jus the latch broke, try to pull the cable line with a plyers.

The latch for the hood is upfront too, so there must be a way to get at it through the grill

I'm sure I've read somewhere that you can get it open with a screwdriver, just above the driver's headlight in the grill i think.....


EDIT: www.unofficialbmw.com/e30/exterior/e30_external_hood_opening.html

That should help I hope...

Look underneath the dash. If the cable broke near the handle, securely clamp the cable with a vise grip then pull the cable.

If the cable broke in the engine compartment and you're desperate, carve a hole in the hood then cover the hole with a roundel badge or something lol
