Mein Auto: 1993 740il BMW
Total n00b Qustion: How to pop the hood????

I just purchased a 1993 740il BMW, and it is truly a beauty. However, I need to check some fluid levels, and for the life of me, I can't find the lever for the hood?!?!!??

The owner's manual was not with the car when I purchased it. I don't see a lever anywhere on the driver's side, or a button in the glove compartment.

Sorry for such a noobish question, but how do I open the hood?

help please?

its on the driver siide basically on the wall to the left. if u put ur hand on it and move it around u will feel a plastic like thing maybe about 2 inchs to 3 inchs big and u stick ur hands on the little grove and pull towards the rear of the car. this pops it off the lock. then u go to the front and in the grille there is a lever u pull up on while pulling the hood up.

above post is correct, hoever, there is no latch in the front.... your hood opens from the windshield cowl (backwards from most of them out there.
