Hood won't open???
« on: 02/06/06 12:26 PM »

Hey, I have a 2003 cladded Z-71 Avy, went to open the hood and nothing.  I pull on the hood opener thing and it feels like it is disconnected?  I took off the plastic around it and the cable is hooked up there but when I pull on it it feels like there is no resistance?  Any ideas?  How canj I open the hood with out this?? Or can I?  Anybody?

Thanks in advance.

Yes you can open your hood from the outside.
Look through your grill at the hood latch, see the small lever below the latch, move it toward the left fender with a long screwdriver and it will open.
Their is alot of tension on it so it moves hard.
