silversled can only hope to improve
only one way I know of...you gotta go to the front of the car, turn towards the car itself, reach down with both hands to the lip of the hood and lift as quickly and evenly as you can. You gotta bust loose the crapped up hood release assembly. It's under the hood, so don't bother wrecking inside stuff trying to override something that can't be.....believe me, I have gone through this same thing.....
