OK, read the few posts about this and I've had this problem in the past but never this bad. Replaced the hood brackets on each side after they were bent and pulled the hood in for adjustment to where the lines were near perfect. However, when I close the hood, especially this time around, I can't get the bastard to pop past that second safety latch no matter what I do. Push, pull, 1/4 down with another person pulling the lever.... You name it and I have tried it. I can't get the hood to open. Sometimes I push it down real hard and I can hear the pop. I push and pull and nothing. Any suggestions? I ran out of energy to play with it anymore.

Is the spring on the secondary latch missing or broken? If the spring is not operational, there is nothing to push the hood up when you release the primary latch.
