Have someone pull hood release while you bump hood at front center with your hand, when hood opens lube the latch assem.
and hinges!
That worked; however, when I reset the lock assembly to approximate original, all failed: hood is still locked-down. Under-chassis release manuovre failed. Cannot make hood open maually at this point.
Did you lube the latch like i suggested while it was open? W-D 40 works! For a while.
Do you mean you have the hood open and locked the latch back and can't unlock it now?
DEFINE RESET THE LOCK. I am sure you did not try to do any adjustments, right?
When all you needed was a little oil on the hood latch.
