well if the cable snapped you will need to try to get the front grill to pop out with out breaking it and look up and in to get to the little latch for the hood release.

SOURCE: 2006 Jetta 2.5 trunk latch operate when really cold

you need to remove the trim cover on the inside of the trunk lid. it sounds like the solenoid is jamming. the solenoid should flick out against a lever that will release the trunk lid and then return back again within a split second. if it stays out then it is jamming, and thus holding the truncks locking mechanism open.
the solenoid may also jam shut and therefor not release the lock. if you can see this happening then replace the solenoid.

How do you replace front hood sensor?


The sensor is in the latch. You can unplug it from the latch and it wont cause any problems. Another thing to check is the adjusting pads on the body. They may be set too high.

Hood latch won't latch when closing


Raise hood,have some one go pull hood latch and you look at latch and see if it releases,if it doesn't then cable may need replacing,I would'nt completely shut hood cause you may not get back open,also check hood latches bolts and latch for something bent or broken.

Hood latch won't stay in locked position. Hood is 1 quarter inch high.


There should be rubber bumpers on the bottom of the hood where the latch is. They are located on either side (and ends). Screw them inward for lower closure.

Hood wont catch on the main latch on my 1998 montana


Hi JM, The catches do wear out and more likely the cables become frayed and do not allow the hood catch to return to the correct position for locking. Try pushing in the handle inside the car. If it work then have the cable replaced asap. If not , you may need to replace the catch mechanism Regards John

My 93 caravan the hood latch won't catch to keep the hood closed


Your hood latch probably isn't returning to the right position for it to catch. This is commonly caused by one of two problems: (1) too much hardened grease and crud on the latch itself is keeping it from operating freely; or (2) the hood release cable has gotten rusty or kinked over time and is no longer releasing completely.
I would suggest testing the hood release cable before doing anything else. It's an easy test and it only takes a minute. Enlist the help of a second person to pull the hood release lever while you look at the hood latch. When your helper pull on the release, you should see the cable pull part of the hood latch. When they let go, that part should swing back to its prior position. Using a long-shafted screwdriver, see whether you can "help" that moving part move any further on its return path. If you can push the latch any significant amount, it's not returning all the way to its proper position, and your hood release cable is probably binding.
In the short term, if you manually push the hood latch back into position, you should be able to close your hood again. However, you'll have to do this each time you open the hood. In addition, you run the risk that, not too far in the future, your hood release cable will actually completely bind or snap, and then you'll have a much harder time opening your hood to replace the cable (or do anything else, like add oil or washer fluid).
