    I was installing some Hellas behind the grill, and while checking to see if the wires would clear with the hood down, the latch has jammed and I can't open the hood.

    This is what I'm looking at. Any help would be great, I'm going out of twin tomorrow morning and NEED to get this fixed. Thanks

    What happens when you pull the latch inside the cab?
