Mein Auto: 740I
I recently have replaced my alternator and cannot get back in to top off my coolant.
I pulled on my hood release and it will not pop the latch.
The weather is extremely cold and had someone hold the latch while I pulled up still not working.
The car always gave me a hard time by myself but when I had someone hold it has always opened.
The passenger side grill is off how can I trigger the switch manually to release hood?

Can anyone help?
