Mein Auto: 750 LI
2006 750Li Hood Release Issue

Although there is a thread on how to manually release the hood on a 7 series it does not seem to apply to the 750li. The example is a 745 and when you try to go at the hood latch from under the engine cavity there is much more in the way of the latch.

We tried for over 6 hours to get at it from underneath. and after removing the kidney grill we still cannot get to the release. The car is a Livery vehicle and every ay its off the road costs $$ not to mention it makes it hard to get about. The coolant light came on and that is how I discovered the latch will not release. We now have over 14 hours into the car, its been off the road for three days during the busiest time of year. Please reply with any alternate suggestions. The cars a gem I put 55k on it since July and will finish the year with about 88k miles driven. Please help as I cannot afford to be off the road much longer
