Cut the outer hood release cable sheath (under the dash) back to expose the inner wire cable, then using a pair of locking pliers (Vise Grips) pull on the inner release cable while another person pushes down over the latch area of the hood to relieve pressure on the latch and make it easier to open, the hook is released lubricate the hood latch and hood latch striker with white Lithium Grease (AKA "Lubriplate")

    the cable snapped on the side that connects to the hood lock/release mechanism - not the side under the dash. I have access to the mechanism thru the front plastic grill covers.

Where is the starter relay located at in a 05 lancer es


From the looks online, it's either under the hood on the drivers side, or there should be a little trap door when you open your drivers door, probably next to one of the vents. Those covers are usually labeled with what fuse goes to what. Good luck.

Where is the gas filter located on a lances es? 2005


Inside the tank... if not first check under the passenger side towards the rear of the vehicle. Should be just in front of the fuel tank and rear tire, or around the tank. If none of these. Check engine bay firewall passenger side. Not an expert on lancers but these are usual locations.

How do I open the hood of a Mitsubishi L300 ?


  1. Locate the interior hood-release lever under the dashboard on the driver's side of the interior of the car.

  2. 2

    Lift up and toward you on the hood release lever. The lever is connected to a cable that releases the hood. The hood will pop up about 1/2 inch when you pull the lever.

  3. 3

    Move to the front of the car and locate the exterior hood-release lever under the front of the hood. It is located near the middle of the vehicle, just beyond where the front edge of the hood meets the body. Lift up on the inner lever.

  4. 4

    Lift up on the edge of the hood while holding the inner lever in place. When the hood is up, find the hood prop and raise it, setting its tip in the hood-prop mount on the hood, to hold the hood up while you work in the engine bay.
