Question about 2005 Hyundai Sonata
I cannot open the hood. The hood release inside the car does not seem to work though you can still feel tension and hearing something move. We've tried pushing down on the hood while moving the release. We've tried moving the hood latch with a screw driver and it moves pretty easily but I don't want to move it too hard one in either direction less I really screw something up. Looking at it from under the car, there does seem to be a hole big enough for a small screwdriver but am not sure what that was supposed to accomplish since I didn't feel any resistance or something to push on. I would really appreciate some additional feedback. Thank you for your time!
Have someone push down on the hood over the hood latch area while you pull the release, that may work. Once it is open lube everything up with white Lithium grease also known as "LUBRIPLATE:"

if the cable is not broken then pull the release then take the side of your fist and pound on the hood starting towards the top drivers side and slowly move towards the latch try it a few times i have to do this every single time on my blazer
