Question about 1996 Ford Aerostar Extended
How to raise the hood of a 1996 Ford Aerostar Mini-van when the latch is frozen? I have been told that the bolts/screws that hold the latch locking mechanism cannot be reached from underneath this vehicle as with older model vehicles. Not to mention that to get the locking mechanism out I will need to take the front grill out, (LOL) but for me to be able to do that I need the hood up. So can you please help me as I am having starting issues with this vehicle & need to get under the hood to clean my battery terminals???? I appreciate any and ALL HELP with this matter!!!!!!
Takeing off your grill is a great starting place to get to your hood release. Another thing to look for is if the cable might be hung up see if u can spray a generous amount of spray lube all over ur hood release and cable.
