I replaced the new hood release cables and when I pulled the release handle the hood wouldn’t pop up I had to with one hand pull the release and the other hand I had to pull up on the hood. How do I get the hood to pop up when I pull the release handle? Thanks,Gerry

Hi Gerry - Although I've replacaed the hood struts as well as the coil springs on the latching pins, I've also not been able to achieve the hood "pop" when pulling the latch handle. However, the new struts have made a significant difference with lifting the hood! Hope your message generates another option to pursue!
