To open the hood of a BMW, you must pull the hold release lever two times.
The lever is located on the left-hand side of the driver’s seat, near the footrest. Pulling the lever just once will pop the hood open, while pulling it twice will unlatch it completely. Once you’ve successfully opened the hood, your BMW will display a Check Control message.
Now that you can take a peek at what’s happening under the hood of your BMW, you may want to take a better look at its insurance policy as well. You’re probably paying too much for your coverage, but luckily Jerry is here to help.
