Chevrolet Equinox Owners Manual: Hood

To open the hood:


  1. Pull the hood release lever with this symbol on it. It is on the lower left side of the instrument panel between the door and the steering wheel.


  1. Go to the front of the vehicle to find the secondary hood release handle. The handle is under the front edge of the hood near the center. Push the handle to the right and raise the hood.


  1. Release the hood prop from its retainer, located above the radiator. Securely place the hood prop into the slot on the underside of the hood.

To close the hood:

  1.  Before closing the hood, be sure all the filler caps are properly installed.
  2.  Lift the hood to relieve pressure on the hood prop.

    Remove the hood prop from the slot on the underside of the hood and return the prop to its retainer. The prop rod must click into place when returning it to the retainer to prevent hood damage.

  3.  Lower the hood so that it is 30 cm (12 in) above the vehicle and release it so it fully latches.
  4.  Check to make sure the hood is closed. If not, release the hood from inside and repeat Steps 1-3.
