Hello Mandy,

I've been working hard to find a Professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.

I wonder whether you're ok with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.

Thank you,

Hello Mandy and welcome! I'm Billy and i will assist you with this.

My apologies for the delay, thank you for your patience.

Since you already got the grill off, you need to get a pair of tight nosed pliers, and handle these so you can catch the cable (on the passenger side of the grill), and pull on the cable to the hood opens. As eventhough the grill is out, the locking mechanism cannot be removed from this location.

Get back to me with your findings, or if further info is needed.

Regards, Billy
