Open Hood How To 2009-2013 Lincoln MKS

We are still working to obtain content for your car,

Video Description

This video shows you how to open the hood in your 2011 Lincoln MKS. Popping the hood on your MKS is a two step process, you need to release the hood latch inside your MKS and then you need to release the safety latch under your hood in the front of your MKS. The video above shows you the location of both hood latches. Sometimes, the hood on Lincolns gets stuck and won't pop up after the interior latch is released. If this occurs on your MKS, simply pull up on the hood and it should pop up for you to release the second latch. Sometimes, especially on older MKSs, you may have difficulty getting your hood to latch when you close it. In this case, the interior release lever on your 2011 Lincoln MKS is probably stuck in the "open" position - push the release lever back and forth several times and then try to close your hood.
