That’s awesome you’re staying on top of your
maintenance! Fortunately, popping the hood is easy although it can be unintuitive at first.
Here’s how to open a
Ford Fiesta ST
hood: *Start by getting in the driver’s seat. Beneath the left side of the steering wheel, you’ll find a rectangular lever—pull this lever to pop the hood.
  • Get out of the car and walk around to the front of your
    . At this point, the hood should be open wide enough that you can slide your fingers beneath the gap.
  • Using your fingers, find the yellow safety lever holding the hood in place. Slide this lever to the left and pull up to open the hood.
  • Holding the hood up with one hand, use the other to prop up the arm and latch it into the grooves along the inside of the hood’s rim. This will keep the hood open while you work.
Now, you’re good to go!
