  1. Still could not open the hood. The illustration was not graphic enough. I felt all around and did not encounter anything I could lift up.

  2. Ford directions suck, says release inside latch walk around to front and lift hood. makes no reference to secondary release.
    went online – one set of instructions say move secondary release right, another move left, another move up. none work. I’m about ready for the saws-all
