Help Hood Noise

Recommended Posts

I have an 05 box S and every time i turn the key there is a squeal from the mechinism that releases the hood, i can duplicate the noise by pulling the emergency lever in side the trunk, my release button in the car does not work for the hood, yet the rear works fine. The only way i can open hood is with key fob. any help provided would be greatly appreciated.

so the plot thickens

i took all of the plastics off so i could get at the hatch system. It seems that there are two dif releases first the hood release, second the safety latch. My problem lies in the safty latch that is where the noise was coming from, it seems that it was stuck prob from non use. I played with it for about ten minutes (sounded like it was getting better) and then it stopped working. Now i have no noise but at six two if i ever get stuck under my hood boy am i in trouble. ???? should i just forget about it an call it a day or is there a easy fix for this,,,, and why was it trying to unlatch the safety hood release (just the safety latch hood never popped) upon turning the key..... oh and for some strange turn of events after all this now my hood release inside the car works!!!!
