Probably help to know the tractor model, and maybe a pic, not all have the same hood release.

Oops, missed L4630, my bad. Can't help, never seen one. Sorry, but I'm sure someone will be able to help.

You might want to study the illustrated drawings at Kubota.com, Messicks or other. Perhaps it will provide a clue that may help.

I slammed my hood down too hard and dislodged the latching mechanism. I had to remove the headlights to be able to access and open the hood so that I could reattach the latch. I close it gently now.

Resolution: Nut on mascot had lossened off and would not allow it to engage. Had to take off plastic covering on left side of hood. From there I cold see the latch. Use a piece of stiff wire to manually open the latch.
