1995 POLARIS SLT 750 hood latch jammed, how to open?
Any one know?
I have a 1995 SLT 750 and I cannot get the hood open. I had to stand above the hood and squeeze the handle and give it a jerk for it to open.
I adjusted the post up a 1/4 turn, and now I cannot even do that for it to open. Is there a way to get it to released now that I seemed to have made it worse.

Never had one stick like that..... I usually have to push up with my finger tips to get it to open easily vs trying to squeeze...

I have. The hood on mine was getting very difficult to unlatch. Required the hard squeeze and jerk like you mentioned.
I too tried to adjust mine and only made it worse. Seemed like adjustments were backward from what I originally thought they would need.
I luckily was able to finally get mine back open and then adjusted it the other way and it works "normally" now.
Side note... the hood latch is the same core latch as the seat latch. On another ski... my hood latch came apart and pieces were lost. On an off chance I pulled the seat latch off my parts SL750 and found it was the same core latch with different finger levers.
Sorry... I'm not helping get yours open... jerk harder!

Thanks for the replies, I have three extra seats for SL 750 so if the latch is broke I will replace.
