Hood Latch Stuck

Post by jhock » Mon Mar 23, 2020 10:03 pm

Hello, I can find a lot on this for older model Volvos, but nothing on the XC60. My driver's side hood latch will not release. The passenger's side does, but the driver's side is now permanently stuck. I even pulled out the interior handle and yanked on the cable with all my might, but I cannot get that thing to release again.

There are usually ways of getting a hook up there to pull the release, but I do not think I am going to be able to see anything without pulling the entire bumper off. When the latch was starting to stick (should have done more then), I could not figure out how the heck to even get to them to replace them! I thought the bumper would have to come off, but now I am wondering if the AC condenser/radiator have to come out to access the blasted hood latches?

This may be an issue I have to give up on and bring it to the dealership, who will certainly know what to do. If anyone has had any experience with replacing these latches, I would appreciate advice first.

Have somebody pull and hold the latch as you push down on the hood then let up.
