Question about Mercedes-Benz S-Class
I removed front cross member of car under hood while fitting new light bulb. Cables not put back in right place on when re-assembled. Release not working when I try to open hood now. Can I get it open through the front grill, or after removing grill?

SOURCE: hood latch won't release
This has happened to me several times, this will take two people, but all you need to do is have one person pull the hood release, while person number 2 pushes down on the hood, and then pulls up...that ought to do the trick

The latch is stuck in the open position. I always found white lithium grease worked best on those latches but any good lubricant will work. Try moving the latch manually with a screwdriver. After applying the lubricant move the latch a few times. You should see the tension return to the release, if it doesn't you have a broken release cable.
