W123, cannot open the hood

Hello,
Last night i got a rather unpleasant surprise, as i could not open the hood on my otherwise trusty 280CE. Pulling the handle in the cabin, just doesn't release the latch, so if you
have a workaround, it will be very welcome.
Thanks,
Jesper

Try having someone push down on the hood while you pull the handle. And once you get it open, lube it appropriately...
