SOURCE: Hood on my 1995 Toyota Tercel won't open

Someone just successfully helped me with a similar problem. IF the cable is Not broken, ie: still taunt when one pulls the hood release lever in the car, then the latch under the hood is simply stuck. Try this. Have someone bounce/press down on the front center of the hood where the latch is located to relieve spring tension. At the same time have someone pull the Hood Release lever inside the car. This may pop open the front hood. Then after the hood opens spray WD40 on the hood latch to rid the rust which likely is the cause of the problem. BTW...don't know what you mean about the Oil Light comes on. You don't need the engine turned on to open up the front hood, at least not on my model (2door sedan).

SOURCE: the hood will not pop open

I used WD40 with a long spray tube through the grill to liberally cover all of the parts and the cable then let it sink in for a while. I then got an assistant to hold the bonnet down to relieve some of the pressure on the catch and tried again. Bingo! Disassemble the mechanism and release the cable clamp outer. Tie up the catch with string to the bonnet so it's lifted up as high as possible. Make a funnel out of blue tac or similar and fill with oil so it will flow into the cable inner. Work the catch a few times and leave it. Keep topping up the oil and working the catch for a while to get the oil well into the cable. Oil the mechanism and replace. I guess I got lucky but you might be the same!

Hood release inside my 2000 ford focus popped to release but I can not open the hood of the car? what should I do?


Might just be stuck. Have someone pull the release as you FIRMLY pound on the front of the hood in the middle with your fist (NOT A HAMMER ! ! ! !).

If that works and it opens, get some WD40 and spray the latch and cable, lever, etc... and then work the release lever before closing it again. If the cable has broken....... it is very difficult to release without some automotive knowledge. I'm betting it is just stuck...


Good Luck.

Cannont open the Engine Compartment


I had the same problem with a 2000 MR2. I took the easy way out and opened it while the engine was cold and unbolted the latch mechanism, leavint the hood unlocked. It you want to keep the hood lockable, you might add a spacer to the cable between the cable sheath and the latch.
