hood is just a matter of finding the two hood release levers.
You’ll find the first hood release lever inside your vehicle, to the left of your steering wheel and below the instrument panel, near the floor. Once you’ve found the lever, pull on it to release the hood.
Then, head to the front of your
to find the second hood release lever, which is just under the lip of your hood, just slightly left of the center. Once you’ve found that, push it to the left (toward the passenger’s side) to release it.
