Hood latch release

1151 Views 5 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  PaulK
I need to replace my hood latch release as the plastic housing just past the interior pull tab has broken. The plastic panel which needs to be removed to access it appears to be held in place by just one plastic tab; however when I attempt to pull it out with my fingers, it won't budge. I am hesitant to pull on it with pliers as I think I'll wreck it. Does anyone have a suggestion on removing the plastic tab? It's depicted in the lower left corner of the attached photo.

the kick panel should come out..helps with the R&R. held in by a long push pin and the door sill plate. then you should be able to get it out pretty easy.
it is a long push pin. best way to get them out and others long or short is with one of these or like it. I have one that is slightly different
