no, there"s no tension on the im trying to number out just how to get the hood open up so i deserve to replace the cable. I are afraid that prying may be my just option:doh:
You cant also pull the lever, placed your thumbs whereby the hood is and also lift up really hard? sometimes it help to have someone hold the elver while friend pull/push up on it.
i dislike to pry top top it too much. I have a glass hood and i don"t want to crack it. Ns think i can obtain the grill off, perhaps i can obtain the latch that way
