Toyota Yaris: Hood
To open the hood:
1. Pull the hood lock release lever. The hood will spring up slightly.
Before driving, be sure that the hood is closed and securely locked. Otherwise, the hood may open unexpectedly while driving and an accident may occur.
2. In front of the vehicle, pull up the auxiliary catch lever and lift the hood.
3. Hold the hood open by inserting the support rod into the slot.
To insert the support rod into the slot, move it straight up. If it is moved to the side or toward the inside of the vehicle, it may become detached.
Before closing the hood, check to see that you have not forgotten any tools, rags, etc. and return the support rod to its clip- this prevents rattles. Then lower the hood and make sure it locks into place. If necessary, press down gently on the front edge to lock it.
After inserting the support rod into the slot, make sure the rod supports the hood security from falling down on to your head or body.
Be sure to return the support rod to its clip before closing the hood. Closing the hood with the support rod up could cause the hood to bend.
