Ciao Ragazzi, I’ve been a silent member for some time now and got a lot of good advise out of reading this forum. Thank you for that. https://www.ferrarichat.com/forum/threads/new-to-me-testarossa-in-italy.601340/ Now, my own testarossa arrived at home and I thought I would get started to address some needed TLC. But the car won’t let me The front hood release was stuck. In order to avoid breaking the fragile looking lever, I took it out and pulled on the cable directly - that cable broke and I ended up pulling out the first half of it. The emergency front hood release does move and I can feel it moving a mechanism, but it does not unlatch the front hood. It did work when I bought the car, but don’t know who and how closed the hood the last time. Gently pressing and or pulling on the hood while working the emergency release does not do any good. The search function only came up with advise for the engine compartment and I don’t find anything in the WSM neither. Any help on what to do with the front hood without the normal cable and the emergency release not releasing?
