    4044M Hood broken

    Good afternoon,

    I have a 2019 compact 4044M tractor. The manual said to push in the button with a screwdriver to open the hood. I did and the rod came off inside and the hood is still shut... Any suggestions on how to open it to access the battery?

    Thanks!

    Well that stinks. I'll look at my tractor and see if I can offer any solutions.

    Not quite your model but perhaps similar.

    No way to get the side panels off I'm guessing??

    This thread has pics that "may" be of some use...

    can you use a big long 1/4" drive extension to poke through the hole and move the latch?

    Call John Deere dealer, they sent a technician out to fix mine, it is a poor design.

    Yes, it was a poor design. When I put the screw driver in and pushed it the rod fell right out with the hood still latched.

    Anyway, I ended up drilling a slightly larger hole in the side opposite the opening hole and put a heavy gauge fence wire through with a hook and released it by pulling the rod from the other side. It wasn't perfect, but it worked and the hole is barely noticeable...but not optimal.

    Problem solved! Thanks for your help and ideas.

    You might consider doing what I did.

    Recessed hood latch release on new 4066r's and others

    Note: The rod is held to the unlatch mechanism by a little cotter hair pin, you might consider using a real cotter pin to hold it
    because them little cotter hair pins can lose tension real easy and fall out.
