Opening and Closing the Hood

One of the first things you need to know in owning a car is opening and closing the hood. In an EcoSport, it can be done by simply pulling a lever near the pedals.

Pull this lever until you hear the hood open.

To close the hood, simply let it fall under its own weight, at a height of about 6 to 8 inches. Knowing how to open and close the hood is essential and will become handy in roadside emergency especially in inspecting the various engine components.

Through this blog, I intend to share things that I discover with our EcoSport. To donate a liter of gas to EcoSport DIY Series, click here.
