2008 Mitsubishi release cable for Hood not working. When pulling on release inside car, the hood does not pop open to reach under and release the safety latch


I have a similar problem on my 2006 VW Passat.

I'm able to open the hood two ways:
1) ask someone to hold onto the lever inside the car while you try to lift the hood to the point where you can use the unlatch button and open the hood fully.


2) Pull the lever completely open in the car and try to find a thick screwdriver or some thick paper folded up to wedge next to the lever to hold it open while you get out and try to lift the hood to the point where you can use the unlatch button and open the hood completely.


Other than this finding a service manual or tutorial online about how to pull out whatever trim or interior covers you would need to replace the cable fully. There should be a specific replacement guide for this item since I'm sure it happens to car's at least semi-regularly

How do u get the hood to open on a 99 vw passat if the pully is broke off


Under the car:
You will be able to open the hood if you pull off your splash guard and use a long long flat head screwdriver or something like that. You'll see the hood latch in front of the radiator with the cable attached to it at the top near the hood, put it on the drivers side edge of the bottom of the latch and pry to the passenger side, the lever moves from the drivers side to the passengers side, the cable basically pulls the top of it to achieve this. so your doing the same thing on the bottom with the screwdriver.

Release the latch from underneath by the lever that you have to pry towards the passenger side. Then open the hood, and replace the safety release mechanism broken part.

1998 VW Passat hood lever location inside vehicle ?, told part of drivers side dash, is not obvious. There is a ''lever'' under centre bonnet which is in locked position. Cannot move this lever.


If you can not see the This leaver with a few good glances looking under your dash... Then it may not be there.. May be broken off..
Or If that lever that does not move, You may have to get someone to push down on the hood to take the load off the latch mechanism As you pull the leaver ..
If these do not work.. go for a drive to the nearest dealer and ask.!!
