Question about 1997 Volvo 850
The hood on my 97 850 is stuck on the right side so I cannot pop hte hood. Ineed some advise on how to get to the clamp holding that side of the hood in order to get it open..
I have tried spraying WD40 inside the hood
The whole mechanism is run by two cables. The first from the hood release latch to the left side hood catch. The second from the left hood catch to the right one.
First look and see if the second cable is disconnected from the left hood catch. if it is just pull it and the right should open. If not...
Have somebody with skinny arms to reach up from under the car and manually pull the lever on the right hood catch.
Hope this helps...
