no idea what kind of car you have :) but in my E30 325i (and probably
most other older BMW's that have hoods that open the proper way :)
there is a hole with a slot reachable with a large flat head
screwdriver just beside the front left (drivers side) headlight..
Put screwdriver in, turn, and clunk: the hood pops open.
looking at front of car.. (*) are headlights
x is the spot to put the screwdriver
BTW, just think, without a hood sensor/alarm a thief could pop the
hood, mess with the fuse box etc, and do who knows what to your car..
