To open a Lincoln MKZ hood you’ll need to first pull the hood release lever and then release the safety latch under the hood. To do so, follow these simple steps:
  • Locate the hood release lever on the driver’s side of your car—it will be under your dashboard near the steering column of your vehicle.
  • Pull the hood release lever until you hear the hood pop to raise it open a couple of inches.
  • Exit your vehicle and circle to the front of your car.
  • Locate the safety latch just under the hood, and push it to the left.
From there, you should only have to lift the hood (and maybe prop it open) and ta-da! You’re ready to get to work under the hood. No matter the maintenance, keep your car rolling with coverage from Jerry, the car insurance comparison super app.
