How do I pop the hood on my Mercedes Benz?

January 4th, 2011 · No Comments

I found a latch in the front part of the grill and pulled on it and nothing happened. I need to pop the hood so I can put oil in it pronto! Is there any hidden buttton I need to push to get it to open?

- Inside the cabin, on the driver’s side, left of the steering wheel, near your left knees, you’ll find a RED lever. Pull it toward you. You’ll see the hood pop up just a little.
Now, get out of your car and stand in front of the star.
In the grill, usually right of the star, but third of the way down in the grill, you see a black lever. Pull it. Now, you see the hood pop up even more.
Now, you should be able to pull the hood about 60 degrees up. If you need to have it completely vertical, then go to the right side of the right hinge and pull the hinge. (you’ll understand when you see it) By releasing the latch, it will go vertical.
- right above the “hand brake” pedal, there is a red thingy that you pull the front towards yourself. Then, hold the latch towards the right headlight and lift up the hood. I know the 2004 E500 4matic has hydraulics to keep it up.
