SOURCE: My hood latch is broken

If the cable link to the latch is rusty or broken you have to take the front grid down. It's relatively easy. It's held there by plastic fasteners. Then reach for the latch with you hand, or the leftover broken cable. Pull it, it should release the first latch, than you just have to get to the security latch, like you usually do to open the hood.

My hood latch cable broke,how can I get under my hood


Gentlemen-
Remove the turn signal from the Drivers Side and push a long screwdriver into the spot until you trigger the latch, this is a tedious chore at best but sooner or later you will trip the latch and the hood will open, then pull the cross over cable and unlatch the hood. Please replace the opening cables, both of them and build an EMERGENCY HOOD CABLE and run it down until you can reach it from the outside, under the car. GOOD LUCK!!!!

Unable to open the hood. is there an alternative way to pop the hood?


Where did it break? If you can grab the cable end that is still attached to hood latch, use a good pair of pliers and pull on it.

If it broke under the hood, not so good ! Only way to get hood open then, is to reach up from underneath with a flat blade screwdriver and find the lever that cable is attached to at the latch. Push the lever towards driver's side to pop the hood.. If you can't get to it from underneath, see about removing the grill, or get your hand in from there to reach the latch.

Hood Latch Cable Broke


Someone with a lot of patience and persistence can use a strong piece of wire such as a straightened coat hanger to release a hood latch from underneath the car. It is a good idea to have someone press down on the hood to release spring tension. Yanking on the inside release won't accomplish much. I have done this task. It wasn't fun

Unable to get hood open. I released hood from button inside, but unable to lift hood up. Please advise


first, try smacking the hood at one of the front corners while someone else pulls the release handle. or even after you've pulled on it. if that works, once open, adjust and lubricate the hood latch assembly. if it still won't open, and it's the cable and not the latch you'll have to replace it anyway, so instead of removing the grill, cut the cable behind the pull lever under the dash where you can reach it. then skin the outer cable insulation away from the actual steel cable exposing an inch or two of it. then holding the insulation and plastic housing with pliers, grab the steel cable itself with pliers and pull it to open the hood. then replace the cable. the further you can reach up under the panel the better your chances of getting past the broken part of the cable and avoid removing the grill. you might also be able to gain access from up under the car if you're lucky.

Hood latch


There is no other way to release the hood other than either trying to reach the latch release from under the car or removing the grille.
