Question about 1989 Buick Century
I pulled the hood release and my hood is jammed shut. Please help me.
There's two ways to do this: get under the front end of the car and try it from underneath (the hard way) or pull the grill and get at it from the front. To pull the grill, you need a medium sized torx driver (I think it is a 15, but don't quote me on that) to pull the 6 screws that are recessed on either side of the center post of the grill, and then one at each corner. Once you have the grill off, there are two holes in the center frame bracket. You will need a long, flat head screw driver to go into the larger of the two holes from the left side, with an angle like the hour hand on a clock when it's between 7 and 8 o'clock. Be carefull not to puncture your radiator! The flat of the screwdriver has to slide between the top of the frame around the hood release bracket and connect with the vertical post of the hood release mechanism. Once you have made contact, push the screwdriver along the angle that you have and it will move the hood release mechanism counter clockwise enough to pop the hood.
