I’ve misplaced my remote key and I’m needing to access underneath my hood. Is there a way to manually pop the hood or enter through the Lexus emblem somehow?

Hi,

On the left side of the steering column, there should be a release lever that is attached to a cable and runs to the hood release.

If you look below, pic 1 shows the location it should be. Pic 2 just shows the lever. Locate the lever and gently pull it toward you. The hood should pop to open to the safety latch. Then you can release that by hand from the front of the hood.

Let me know if you find this.

Take care,

Joe
