How can I open the hood on my Dodge Charger GT?

The dealer told me that it is good to clean out any dust and leaves off my engine from time to time. It seems like a good idea, but I don't actually know how to open the hood. How do I open the hood on my new Dodge Charger GT?

Keeping the parts under your hood is a good way to prevent unnecessary corrosion. Popping the hood on your Dodge Charger GT can be done with these four simple steps:
  • Lift the hood release panel located on the driver’s side instrument panel inside the car; it is below the steering wheel, on the left
  • Once you hear a pop, exit the car and slightly lift the hood up
  • Using your hand, feel between the body of the car and the hood for the hood latch; it is located in the center front of the hood. Once you find it, push it to the left
  • Push the hood straight up till it locks in place. You won’t need to worry about using a hood strut (that little metal stick), the hood will stay up on its own
Doing basic car maintenance like this is a great way to keep your Dodge in good working order.
