Factory location for the hood release is just to the left side of the steering column right on the underside of the dash .... see photo. It's a stainless "T"-handle with a sheathed cable that runs to the front hood latch. The cable releases the first lock and then you put your hand through the grill ... just about in the center ... and move a second lever to take the hood off its "safety" notch .....

Laughing at learning doesn't make it go any better. Sometimes a small smile is enough !! I think that's where "LOL" came into being.
