Open Hood How To 2007-2012 Nissan Sentra

We are still working to obtain content for your car, however the video above is believed to have similar characteristics as your car.

 
Video Description

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