The reason I tittled this one "750 Hood" problems is because I think that the 745 video and pictures don't really help. Can anyone help with manually opening the hood of a 750. I am trying to post a pic of the way mine look under the drivers wheelwell. In the pic you can see the windshield washer resevoir which is in a different place on the 745.

Do I have to remove these items or is there another way?

The problem is when I try to use the release in the car nothing happens. The hood does not pop!

The wiper fluid reservoir looks like it's in the same place as the 745, you just need to find a way to move it a little, or move some other stuff to get past it. If you need a lot of room (good for your first time doing this), taking the reservoir out will get you a good view of what you need to see and feel. Also, don't put the reservoir back in until you've opened and shut the hood several times -- I learned this the hard way, learn from me.

Trust me, I have looked over Kiefs post many times (about 20). It looks different on the 750 than the 745.

More pictures? Which parts in particular are different? (I haven't pulled this apart on a 750 yet, so I don't know) You have an airbox over the wiper fluid reservoir, right? I forgot about that part. I'll see if I can find a 750 tonight to look at.

i had same problem with mine, i took off the locks, then placed them back and the wire came off, so i had to take the handle there inside take that apart and pull the wire as far as it goes and it snapped open, (thank god) lol good luck!

Right now I am under an extended warranty, so I made an appointment. According to the paperwork, they cover hood latches, cables, springs. So I am hoping it is the cable or latch. Could it be anything else that may not be covered?
