  1. Park and turn off the engine.
  2. Pull the hood release lever. This first lever has a symbol of a car with an open hood and is on the driver’s side of the vehicle, to the left of the steering column.
  3. Once pulled, the hood will pop up slightly, and you will hear a click.
  4. Move to the front of the vehicle, put your hand under the center of the hood, and pull the secondary latch to the right to release the hood.
  5. Raise the hood partially.
  6. The gas-strut system will automatically open the hood and keep it in place to avoid accidental closure as you work on the engine.
