After the hood pops up about 5 cm you have to release an upside down 'J' shaped catch by hand through the opening between the hood and the top of the grille. After this, the hood raises another 10 cm or so and you can slide and tilt it forward. If this does not work you can remove the plastic grille (4 small screws) and you can get to the catch mechanism to pry it open with a screwdriver You can also join and ask at (How long do you have this car? Where are you in NL?) ------------ MH (Groningen, NL) '72 97 '77 96 '78 95 '79 96
