Open Hood How To 2004-2010 BMW X3

Video Description

This video shows you how to open the hood in your 2008 BMW X3. Popping the hood on your X3 is a two step process, you need to release the hood latch inside your X3 and then you need to release the safety latch under your hood in the front of your X3. The video above shows you the location of both hood latches. Sometimes, the hood on BMWs gets stuck and won't pop up after the interior latch is released. If this occurs on your X3, simply pull up on the hood and it should pop up for you to release the second latch. Sometimes, especially on older X3s, you may have difficulty getting your hood to latch when you close it. In this case, the interior release lever on your 2008 BMW X3 is probably stuck in the "open" position - push the release lever back and forth several times and then try to close your hood.
