Help Please.. Cannot open the Hood on my Outback


Recommended Posts

Today I pulled the bonnet catch on my 2002 Outback and nothing happened .    I've tried pushing down; lifting up; giving it a tap; and pushing the outside lever through the grill.  !Removed! thing won't budge.     Can anyone help?   Does anyone have a sensible suggestion to release the hood?    Help  Please.

give latch a good squirt wd40 threw grill as well as it may be seized up with cold weather.

Wife said the same thing; could be seized up from cold weather; and I'll follow your lead with a squirt of WD40 in the morning.

Thanks for reply & Advise

SORTED!  -  A squirt with WD40 and another pull on the lever and the hood popped open.  Must have been the extreme cold weather yesterday?   Open now and well greased.

Thanks for the help and advise gent's; it's appreciated
