First of all I'm new to this sub stackexchange, and an even more of a noob when it comes to car maintenance or repair, so please be patient.
I have a Ford Fiesta mk6, and the hood just won't open now. I did some research, and it looks like the hood release cable has failed. Not sure if broken or just popped out, or smth.
I tried to open the hood like as shown in videos But cannot find the release mechanism. I'm pretty sure I pushed on every single part of the release mechanism, but no luck. I can only move the closing lever.
This is the locking/opening mechanism.
This is what used to pop out when the "open hood" lever was pulled
So my question is: How can I open the hood now? Where is the opening mechanism located? Can anybody see what I should do to open my hood?
