Emergency cannot open engine lid


Recommended Posts

I had the battery off to do some repairs (clean the MAF), and now, with the battery back on, I can`t get the engine lid to open. It does it`s usual sound, but the **** thing is jammed or something. Is there a manual release like for the front lid?

any suggestions, it`s kind of an emergency since my airbox is out, the car can`t move, and I can`t open the **** lid!

thanks marco

thanks you sir

I took out both rear light, saw the wire and released the lid. **** electrical release!

Now I go put in my airbox and pray my MAF cleaning did the job.

Leaving for DE in 2 hours, would have been painful to call the head instructor and tell him I can`t make it because I couldn`t open my bloody engine lid!

My lid wouldn't open either 2 days ago. I was putting in a new maf and reinstalling the OEM air box. Drove it to work the next day and when I got home, it worked fine. Thanks, Loren, for the informative manual release technique.
