Mein Auto: 1989 325I
Hood won't open

Aloha Bimmerfest & Mele Kalikimaka... 1989 325i... I pull the level under the dash and nothing happens, and if I pull much harder I think I might snap the lever. What can I do to open the hood? Once I open it (hopefully) is there something I can do to tighter the cable???

Get a long screwdriver. A flat head. And go right next to your drivers mirror. Inside the grills next to the kidney grills. You'll see a slot to out the screwdriver. Put it in and push down. Voila. Hood pop

ARG... I wasn't catching what you were trying to relay as there are several open slots and several holes. I tried pushing on all the spots. So, after a frustrating 20 minutes, I went to YouTube... many thanks for trying. FYI... mine didn't pop, but I lifted on the front and it came up!
