ok i know some of u are prob going to laugh at me righ tnow but this is what i did today..
first drove to pep boys asked them if i could bring a few screw drivers outside to see if it'd pop this sob. nothing they had worked. every single one of them were wedge shaped and didnt fit.
next i went to advance auto. same exact cheap pos.
after that i drove all the way to lowe's bought a few .88 flat heads that were actually slim unlike the wedge shaped ones. none of them worked. those ones actually moved the little flap inside, but the damn thing wont pop.
finally after all this i go to the bmw dealership. walk in say my hood latch broke. the guy laughed after i texplained the fron grill hole thing. he says good luck with that some of our guys try for hours with that. he asked if the wire was still sticking out from the latch inside under the steering wheel, which it was, so he says to go get my vice grips and pull that mofo.
drive home, get grips, latch um on rly good deep breath pull hard *snap*. theres still a little left. latch on again pull a little softer this time.. nothing. pull for about 5 mins messing w this thing in th epouring rain say eff it and go inside.
SO wtf man? srsly lol
