Thanks alot for your help
Well wait, does your hood even pop a little? mine did, so thats how I was able to stick the screwdriver back behind the hook lever, mine was rusted out so when my hood wouldn't even pop up a little, But I forced it open, got on a step ladder, my fingers under the crack of the hood, did a 1, 2, 3 & forced it open and it popped right up a little, then i took the flathead and pushed over the little secure latch behind the hood hold down hook, once I got past that, I was able to push the hook moving lever to the left and raise the hood. I only had to do that a couple of times,
But if your hood wont budge, then I'd say you might need to force it up, careful with your fingers though, But as I said before once you get it popped, lubicate it good, mess with it a little too like lay the hood down as if it was popped ( hook holding it down but not shut ) and giggle the latch assembly around. Hope I helped you out a little.
