You will need to locate the hood release cable behind the pull handle and pull the cable with pliers and once the hood is open you can rig something through the grill to open. But I would recomend replacing the cable or the pull release to keep others out from under hood.

Can't open the hood by pulling hood release


Cable is stretched/sprung. Access hood release panel and pull cable with channel locks.. or worse, something is stuck in the latch mechanism under hood.
See repair rep at Ford in any case.

Hood does not open on my 2005 Ford Focus


Have someone lean on the hood as you pull the release, it might be jamming up somewhat. If that doesn't work the hood release cable could be broken, or the latch might be jammed from lack of lubrication, etc.

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.

2001 Ford Explorer--can't open the hood with under dash pull. Mechanic called, wants to take out part of the grill to get at the latch.


You don't have to take the grille apart, besides, you can't take it apart without the hood open, so what he wants to do is smash it open. If you get another vehicle just like yours to look at under the hood, you can see exactly what to grab with a small hook or wire, you can pop the hood this way, some fords have a pinhole for popping the hood, might take you an hour to do it, but it can be done. Check it out, hope this helps.

Can't open hood on mt 91 Ranger, pulling the handle inside the truck doesn't release hood


Ford has the worst adjustable hood adjusters. they tend to break on all models vehicles made making the hood difficult to open.Have someone pull and hold the release handle out while you push on one corner of the front of the hood to see if it will open. Try the other side if the one side will not open at first
