Buick Encore 2020-2024 Owner's Manual / Vehicle Care / Vehicle Checks / Hood

Warning

Turn the vehicle off before opening the hood. If the engine is running with the hood open, you or others could be injured.

Warning

Components under the hood can get hot from running the engine. To help avoid the risk of burning unprotected skin, never touch these components until they have cooled, and always use a glove or towel to avoid direct skin contact.

Clear any snow from the hood before opening.

To open the hood:

  1. Pull the hood release lever with the Buick Encore. Hood symbol. It is on the lower left side of the instrument panel.

  3. Lift the hood and release the hood prop rod from its retainer, in the front of the engine compartment. Securely insert the rod end into the slot marked with an arrow, on the underside of the hood.

To close the hood:

  1. Before closing the hood, be sure all filler caps are on properly, and all tools are removed.
  2. Lift the hood and remove the hood prop rod from the underside of the hood. Return the prop rod to its retainer. The prop rod must click into place when returning it to the retainer to prevent hood damage.
  3. Lower the hood 20 cm (8 in) above the vehicle and release it. Check to make sure the hood is latched completely. Repeat this process with additional force if necessary.

Warning

Do not drive the vehicle if the hood is not latched completely. The hood could open fully, block your vision, and cause a crash. You or others could be injured. Always close the hood completely before driving.
