Question about 1993 Volvo 240
1993 Volvo 240 wagon that has been sitting outside for 10 months. I tried to open the hood and it's stuck in the closed position. I've pulled the release from inside the car and it is somewhat frozen. I've tried to access from under the hood and I can't figure out where the releases are. I've tried to wd40 random areas, but the hood won't budge. Are there any ideas of how I can access the latches so that I can open the hood? Thanks in advance for any help to get under the hood. Grill option? Coat hanger ideas? I'm trying anything. The trunk appears frozen locked as well. I can turn the key, but it won't open.
There should be a cable coming from the driver headlamp area and going acroos to the front center of the hood. where the latch is. spray penetrating oil on the latch at the front center of the hood.
here's a typical latch for a ford.
