How to Open The Hood of a Gen 1 996 with a Dead Battery


A short video on how to open the hood/bonnet/frunk and engine lid of a first generation 996 Porsche. This model has a mechanical hood release and also does not have the red terminal in the fuse box. The second generation 996 have a red terminal in the fuse box where you can apply power and use the electric hood release and get to the battery or jump points in the engine bay.

I hope this video helps fellow 996.1 owners.
