Question about 1991 Saab 900
My 1991 Saab 900S Convertible as been sitting in my garage for quite a while, and I need to open the hood manually; how do I do this if I cannot used the automatic button to open it?
There are two ways to open the hood:
there is a pull lever on the door side of the steering wheel, under the dash, it pulls toward you to release the hood;
if the release cable is broken, you need to make a specially shaped wire tool to release the hood locking pin through the front grille. It needs to be about 1/8 dia wire,and about 16-18 inches long, with a handle bent in one end and to have a 3/4 inch bend up at the other end, bent back toward the handle end at 15 degrees.
Insert thru the grille, hook the rear of the hood lock, and pull the latch toward driver side until hood releases.
Much easier said than done!
