As the title says i hit a deer in my 06 aero sedan. the hood crumpled and wont come off. the cable is snapped and I've already taken the hood latch off. is there a secondary latch i'm missing or do you guys just think its jammed. and on another note do you guys think that its worth trying to fix myself or should i just scrap it. all help would be great

I'm glad you're OK. I'm also glad it wasn't an elk or moose, even though Saabs are moose-tested. (y)

Man, that's bent up tightly. The hood is toast, so it's cutting time for the hood latch pin unless you can unbolt it from the cutout you already have in the hood.

New plastic parts, fender, and hood will be spendy. If nothing else is wrong, junkyard parts and a repaint (needed anyway, body parts come unpainted) might be worth it. Insurance would total it.
