SOURCE: Cant open ford Taurus hood 2003 pull cord doesn't work.

Sometimes it appears nothing happens but after pulling the hood get out and try reaching under the hood for the latch. However if nothing at all happened you need someone to press down lightly on the hood as you pull the cord.

SOURCE: hood release will not release hood cable is not broken

the outer cable may have come loose near the lock, if the grille screws are accessable remove the grille and you will have access to the underside of the lock, you may need a screwdriver to push the lock lever aside to unlock the bonnet

They are not designed to open from the outside. Why can't you get inside?

SOURCE: cant get soft top up

Sounds like you are probably low on fluid. Check for leaks and fill system. Also make sure car is level. I also suggest you get an owners manual as all of it is covered by the book.

My hood release cable has been pulled but doesnt release the hood latch. How do I get the hood open?

Tap on the hood while somebody else pulls the leaver, try pulling up on it to. If this does not work you will have to try to gain access to the hood latch and pull the leaver where the cable is attached to open the hood. The cable may be stretched or broke.

The inside hood release wire pulled out but it wont spring back

You need to replace the hood release mechanism. You can access the hood release from under the car - you'll need access to a pit though. Good luck

How do I open the soft top on a merceedes 320 sl and move the wing mirrors

Wing widows should go down on thier own after you release the winshield locks and rear defroster wire and pull the top down switch back. If it doesnt work the button will flash that means something is wrong. Car running is usally a good idea when doing this to speed it up.

THE SOFTTOP ON MY 98 SL500 won't go all the way up.

I solved my own problem by accident! I checked the hydraulic fluid under the spare tire and voila' the top started to work fine! It has worked perfectly now since July!
