Open Hood How To 2008-2013 Smart Fortwo

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 2009 Smart Fortwo. Popping the hood on your Fortwo is a two step process, you need to release the hood latch inside your Fortwo and then you need to release the safety latch under your hood in the front of your Fortwo. The video above shows you the location of both hood latches. Sometimes, the hood on Smarts gets stuck and won't pop up after the interior latch is released. If this occurs on your Fortwo, simply pull up on the hood and it should pop up for you to release the second latch. Sometimes, especially on older Fortwos, you may have difficulty getting your hood to latch when you close it. In this case, the interior release lever on your 2009 Smart Fortwo is probably stuck in the "open" position - push the release lever back and forth several times and then try to close your hood.
