Question about 1985 Cadillac DeVille
Hi we have a 1985 cadillac deville and we cant open the hood as the cable inside has broken how do we open it please
Depends where cable is broken might be able to put vice grip on it and pull it from inside the car with the door open and you looking at the under dash lever. if can't then alternative is to lay on ground with a trouble light and look straight up under front where you think the hood latch is at if you can see the release then try to reach up and pry it enough to get hood to pop up on the safety then reach in and open it normally giving you time to see what is broken and to replace it. normally a book is available at the public library telling you how to specifically remove and replace broken and worn parts step by step, just find the proper book relevant to your model & make take it and see if it helps or not if it does your all set
