Hello. My hood won't open on my 2008 Kia Optima. How do I tell where the failure is located. When I pull the hood release, it's loose. Though I'm a woman, and don't know that much about vehicles, I'd like to try to repair this myself (tired forking out money to the dealer). Has anyone else had problems with their hood release? Any recommendations? Does anyone know how to open the hood without the release?
