Default Hood stuck (urgent help!)

Help was stupid while removing the fire blanket underneath the hood and uninstalled/reinstalled the hood latches/pins. I think I misaligned the passenger side pin and now the hood wont open because it looks like it is caught on something. The driver side mechanism still releases just fine.

Anyone have any ideas?

Have someone hold the lever all the way up while you push the hood around. If you’re lucky it will release.

Yeah, that's pretty much all you can do. If this doesn't work, you'll need to take off belly pan, and possibly font bumper to try to get to the latch from the bottom.

I did the exact same thing a few months ago. I had to unscrew the locking pin from below. Pretty unnerving.
