Look for a tab on the side of the strut to push in with your finger/thumb.

SOURCE: My hood is stuck and won't open. Is there a

You can try coming up from the bottom of the car. You might have to move a piece of rubber flap in between the bumper and radiator. Use a long screwdriver or jackhandle to pry the fixture. Be careful not to dent the hood.

Sometimes birds will try to build nests under the hood and get sticks into the lock mechanism.

My 2004 Lexus GX 470 has a stuck hood and the battery is dead. I can hear a clicking noise when I pull the hood release lever but still hood is stuck shut. Does anyone have any ideas?


Have someone pull the hood release for you, and you bang the hood several times with your fist...if this works lubricate your hood lock before you close it.

Cannot close hood on Lexus 350. Hood strut is stuck and will not release


the shock is most likely frozen.to disconnect this, go to either the top or bottom of the shock. there is a u shaped metal tab. use a flat head screw driver to pry this off. be careful, its going to be under some pressure! then, just pop the shock off of the small ball on the pivot side. make sure to hold the hood when you do this, because the hood will slam shut, or even worse on you! if the shock wont come off the ball, push the hood up a little bit to take the pressure off of it.

2002 Lexus LS430.Original battery is totally dead.how do you unlock hood latch with no power. Everything is shutdown.i want to replace battery.


If you're able to get into the car, pulling the hood latch lever the hood should open the hood...it doesn't use any power to open, it's all cable. If it still doesn't open...you might have a stuck latch lock. Have someone try to lift the hood while pulling the lever see if that works. If it doesn't work, your hood latch is stuck, but it doesn't require power to open. Hope this helps you open it.

How much should a mechanic charge to replace both rear struts and strut mounts on a 2000 Lexus ES300? How much to replace the front motor mount and the upper motor mount?


since it is a lexus i would not advise going cheap. the struts will probably cost around $350. the motor mounts will probably run around a grand since so much work is involved.
