Hello, my hood is stuck. I found mention of using vise grips on the handle side of the cable but that does not seem to be doing anything. I also read about sticking a screwdriver through the hood vents but cannot see how I could get around the air intake. Does anybody have any other suggestions?

I've had to do this. Pulling on the cable with grips was useless. Iirc I needed a long-ish screwdriver and some thin-nose pliers to do pull what needed pulled (or pushed?) through the vent. I can't recall exactly what needed pulled on sorry, but I looked at the picture of how it worked in the manual and it was obvious enough iirc. Was quite fiddly.

Did you get it sorted?

If not I'll have a look at mine in the weekend and see if I can recall some better instructions.
