    I have a 2000 540i/6 that I have just recently purchased. I got into it knowing it would be a bit of a project, but I'm stuck before even getting to the the engine! The hood opened a few times in my ownership, and then it shut kind of roughly. Now the front is a bit sunk down compared to the...

    E90 Hook Stuck (Cable Snapped) Good afternoon, I was planing on changing my oil today, until I realized that I pulled my hood latch I heard a snap and nothing happened.:eek: My initial reaction was to check the handle. I took it apart and everything is connected as it should be. I have a...

    Please help! I hit a deer and crumpled my hood, dented the grill frame which is now pressing on the auxiliary fan not allowing it to spin, and possibly has cracked the radiator support. I am able to still drive it, and it is not overheating. I cannot get the hood up to see what other possible...

    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...

  12. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    I drive a '96 328is, and recently the cable broke. I took the panel off (drivers side door), and the break is not where the handle is. I cannot figure out how to get my hood popped! I have found the cable, and simply pulling it is not doing the trick. Am I doing something wrong? Is there...

    I have a 98 BMW 528 and my hood cable recently broke... I have the grill out and front bumper off , can't see both latches. How do I get my hood open?
  16. 7 Series - E65 / E66 (2002 - 2008)
    I think my car was hit by a paintball which set off my alarm and now the hood won't open. Nothing happens when I pull on the hood lever, the cable that goes from the lever to the hood latch is still in tact. Is there a way to reset something? Could the alarm have caused this? And how do I fix it?
  17. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    I've seen a few threads about replacing the hood release cable, but what about getting the hood open first? So far, two mechanics (one at the BMW dealership) and a BMW body shop are telling me there is no way to open a closed hood with damaged cables preventing its release. The body shop is...

    I am struck with a decision to make. I just bought my first car, a salvaged E92 335i. I have no choice but to buy a new hood and I am stuck between 2. Please leave a reply or vote on the poll stating the M3 style or the other one. I cannot make my decision and love both. Same price too.
