How do you open the hood of a Mercedes 420sel?

Pull the primary release. It is hidden up and to the left of the emergency brake pedal. You should hear the hood pop. Go to the front of the vehicle and look for a small t-shaped protrusion sticking out of the grill. Pull it while lifting the hood and it should open.
