Try smacking down on the hood with a open hand.You may want to have someone inside to pull the lever while you hit on the hood.If you do get it open spray everthing down with a good lubicant.Well good luck and hope this helped.

SOURCE: hood release cable is broken

Is there any part of the cable inside the cabin that you can pull with a pair of pliers? I suggest that you try that. You may need to disassemble it from the pull handle to make that work.

SOURCE: Hood Won't Open, and Lever Broke

Hi viper852004 , the only way you can do this is to remove the front grills and then you will be able to see the 2 sprung bonnet pegs, you will need to loosen the adjusting nut where it screws into the hood and unscrew it until it becomes unattatched from the hood, do this for both pegs and then you should be able to release the hood to fix the problem. the pegs will need to be reinstalled before driving the car as the hood will not close, hope this is of some help, regards mark.

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.

Why won't the hood latch all the way?


Try using lubricant on the latch, if that isn't making a difference look closely at the latch mechanism for anything that looks obviously broken. if nothing looks broken try lifting the hood and then prop it up. pull the hood release again and try to close. let me know if you get it latched

How do I open the hood?


On your driver side, lower left side, down to where you would place your left feet, there is a handle that has a hood logo on it, pull this handle back, and your hood should be released, then go to your hood, toward the center of the hood, slide your hands under the hood and lift it up a little bit, (it won't open yet) then there is a release lever that needs to be pull, (be easier if you take a look) with your fingers, and once you pull on it, should release your hood, and then open the hood.

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.

My 2003 misubisi eclipse hood latch cable is broken how can i open the hood


This happened to my 2003 mitsubishi Galant... We wound up having to use some cable cutters and cut the cable, then pull the cable out through one of the grill slots, pull off the cover/sheath around the cable, and then we were able to pull the cable and release the latch. If it is already broken and you're going to have to replace it, then you're not hurting anything to cut the cable. Good luck to you.

Mitsubishi endeavor, how to unlock hood, we took out the battery en it locked down we can not open it


The hood release is cable operated, just reach under the dash and pull the hood lever.

If it is not releasing by the lever, you likely have something jammed into the latch and will have to pry it free.

Again, the hood release is not electric.
