The handle should be on the driver side of the vehicle in the driver footwell there should be a handle with a symbol on it near where your left foot would be if sitting in the seat. then when you do this your hood will pop the first lock. after that you will have to go to the hood while pushing up on the hood the "B" in the center of the wings should be sticking up higher that usual. pull on the "B" while pushing the hood up and after this point the hood should stay up after fully up by the struts under the hood.
hope this helps...

How to easily open the hood of a 1994 Chevrolet Suburban

I can't tell you how many times I've had the kid at the parts store and even trained mechanics tell me that the latch on my hood is out of alignment when they have trouble opening my hood.

For the longest time, I didn't know what the problem was... turns out, it's not a problem, it's just how the thing is designed. Here's how to easily open the hood every time...

Pull the handle inside the cab of your Suburban (near the driver's door) all the way, until you hear the lock under your hood "pop" open. Your hood will open very slightly and there will be a little gap, just about big enough for your hand.

Go stand in front of the Suburban, right in the center, and reach inside that little gap. Feel around up towards the hood until you feel a smooth handle that you can push up on. It's about 2 inches wide or so.

Now, using your other hand, push down on the outside of your hood very lightly while you push up on that smooth handle. When you've lowered the hood just enough, you'll be able to push up on that handle and it will release the latch completely.

Hood release inoperable

Have someone push down and pull up on the hood while you pull the handle inside the car. Once you get it open, turn the bump-stops (one on each front corner of the area where the hood lands) counter clockwise to raise them. This should add some more pressure to help the hood "pop." Also, put some oil on the latch once it is open.

Maybe you could check with three panel beaters on if the hood can be bent back or maybe they can spot weld onto the hood and pull it out. Like get three quotes and if you are paying for it like not insurance job or not let the panel beaters know when asking for a quote..

C320 hood release handle won't pop the hood

I don't think there is a day that goes by in the shop where we don't get at least one vehicle that is doing this. Just use two people. One to pull the cable release and the other to slap the hood with their hand and tell it to cooperate. Usually, just a little "jarring" with the cable pulled will get it to pop up.

I need to put motor oil in my car and dont know how to so it cause my eletric to stop and i also need my breaks fix

First problem: adding motor oil. Open the hood of the car, there is usually a lever or handle with a picture of the hood on it, pull that to open hood. Find OIL FILLER CAP and remove. Find the Oil Dipstick and check oil level FIRST! Do not overfill engine oil. Open container of oil and pour in to oil fill hole. The dipstick will have marks on it to let you know where the FULL LEVEL is, do not overfill. Electric should return once engine has sufficient oil in it. For brake problems, please bring your car to the nearest brake shop.
Hope this helps.
