Hood malfunction - advice please

It seems my hood hydraulics aren't working. Possibly a broken hydraulic pipe? I can hear the whirring sound as usual but the hood doesn't move. I can open and close it manually though. Would prefer to go to mechanic with an idea of what to fix... any thoughts?

If you can move it manually (with relative ease) then I would suspect that the bypass is open, and/or you've leaked out all of the hydraulic oil. Pop up the rear seat and check the oil level. Bypass valve is accessed through the trunk (right side by the wheel well), it's a simple on/off valve in the hydraulic lines. Rams on either side are also prone to leak. Guessing once you get the rear seat up your troubles will be easily found by following the trail of oil
