Hi everyone, I'm having a problem I hoping someone can help me with. My Dad has a 1987 325i Convertible with a dead battery and the hood won't open. I 'm trying to give him advise on how to get this fixed (I'm currently overseas at work). Valuable convertible weather is being wasted! Has anyone had a similar problem to this? Is there a way to trip the hood latch through the grill (or other area)? Any insight would be appreciated.
