Im hoping someone can help me out.......I have a 2000 323ci and my hood will not open.
the cable is not snapped and i have pulled the kidney grills of and tried to release the latch but even when i pull to open it seems the hood will not release ....... I noticed that there are the 2 springs under the hood that seem to also lock..........NEED TO ADD Coolant ARE CAR IS over HEATING......Or is there someone i can go see to fix this? I'm located is Sauga.....
Lube the crap out of the latch and let it sit.. then work the latch with with a screwdriver if you can to free it up before attempting the hood cable.
I think I've had 14 bmw's in 4 years.
