Hey Bronco enthusiasts,

About 2 weeks ago my hood release lever fell off randomly and I just placed it back and it still opened the hood after two pulls. A few days ago I tried to open the hood and it stopped working.

I am going to bring it to the dealership Monday but was curious on what caused it? Has this happened to anyone else?

I appreciate your thoughts!

Yikes! Going forward, I’m going to be very careful about pulling on that handle. 😬

It's plastic and inferior. Those are my thoughts.
