Hood Latch Stuck - Unbolted and Still won't open

Post by NickA » Mon Jul 11, 2016 8:58 am

Hey Everyone - 2004 T6... The right (passenger) side hood latch won't unlatch. The left side works with no issues, but the right side doesn't do anything, so I'm assuming the cable is off. It doesn't even unlatch to that first position, nothing moves on it.

I tried disconnecting the cable from the release lever and pulling it with pliers and that didn't work. I managed to get the grill off, and I took the two 10mm bolts out of the latch and it still won't open. I can see the whole latch moving around, but it must be getting hung up on something. I tried getting a screwdriver in there but that hook in the latch won't budge in the locked position.

Does anyone have any other suggestions? Or can you take a look at your latch to see what might be holding mine up even though the bolts are out?

Here is a link to an image of the latch with the bolts out. Sorry it's blurry; the focus was in the wrong spot.
