Thank you both. Will try this weekend.I had this happen on a '99 xc70 once. You can try to close and re-latch the hood, carefully wedge the hood up with something (I used a sharpie) on the side that does unlatch between the hood and headlight or radiator support (this vehicle had glass lights, so much stronger). Then when I pulled the release, it did open for me on both sides. The latch on the passenger side for me needed to be adjusted.
