1995 C220 hood release problem

i have a (US model) 1995 C220, i'm having a problem opening the hood. the hood lever got stucked at the open position but the hood lock mechanism does not want to release. i have tried to push & pull the cable but it still doesn't work. i tried to pull & push the hood but nothing happens.
what is your suggestion for my problem? what do i have to remove to gain access to the hood lock mechanism?

Hmmm... I'm not sure...? BUT!!

1995 C-classes (double check your VIN) had a recall on the hood latch mechanism! If you're lucky, you can just take it in for the recall, and they'll fix it properly. Check with your dealer.

Good luck!

David?

What are you doing up?

I thought you just went to bed at around 3:15 a.m., and were going to get up around noon. 7 hours sleep after partying all night doesn't sound like enough...:p
