The owner of this car should crack open the owners manual.

COMETGUY61- hey, glad to be of service here.... This is easy, the hood release is just under the dashboard on the left hand side of the steering wheel. Looks like a little tab, pull down and that should release the hood.

It's been six hours since this was posted, so, I imagine that the person figured it out by now....

Not if he was looking for a "little tab"!

Thia question has been posted for over a year, and still no answer. The "most helpful" answer just says "Mark,we need you." It is NOT left of the steering wheel, Everything there is just smooth. No tabs. And the guy who smartly commented :Nit uf he was looking for a little tab" is useless too. We don't need to know what it is NOT. We'd like to know where the hood release IS. :

The tab on the Forester is on the left but it does not hang down. You have to feel for it but there is a symbol showing you where it is.

Handle pulls downward from lower left knee panel. "Nit uf"? Who's useless??
