Welcome to FixYa.com


You will need access from under neath front and reach up to latch - use a screw driver and pop release.

SOURCE: hood release cable out from hood latch

from under the car you will need to get up to where the actual catch mechanism is located, from there you should be able to manually release the hood, it may take some effort , but there will be access,although limited... if there is part of the cable accessible grab it with vice grips and pull, hood should release. if not you'll have to find the part on the catch itself that the cable connects too and pull it to release.

Who do I remove rear seat for a BMW 760li?


Most rear seats need to be unlatched from the very bottom on each side. Try sliding the driver and passenger seats fully forward. With your back against the front seat press forward toward the trunk on the bottom of the rear seat on one corner at a time near the floor and lift up. This should release the latch. To replace the seat simply slide the seat back into place with the front slightly raised upward and push the seat in toward the trunk then push down til you hear the latch catch.

Cherokee 1998 hood latch won't open.cable frozen ?


frozen or broken. try a good whack on front on hood while someone pulls latch, see if you can free it up. no luck? try pounding at driver's side near the windshield while someone pulls latch. no luck? You can crawl under front with a screwdriver and reach up and try to release the latch manually. push the little lever the cable attaches to over towards driver's side. good luck. When open, see if cable operates latch: if good spray it liberally with penetrant. If your cable is broken, just get a new one or visit a salvage yard. The hood latch can be adjusted a small amount.

Hood release cable broke, cant open hood


If What type of car? If e39 1997-2003 or 3 series 94-99, easy. buy small inspection mirror. look up by the latch. you'll see where the end cable connects. With a small stubby, move the plastic that the end cable attaches to, you are then moving the latch. Lift up hood. Of course you must pop out the kidney grill to gain access to the drivers side latch, 6 tabs hold it in. Hardest part of whole job is removing kidney grill. moving latch takes about 7 seconds.

93 318 bmw hood cable broke close to latch how do i get it open


you will need to get to release arm or arm on latches, some of these bmws use two latches one on each side of the hood, use a long thin screw driver and try to reach the release arm,this arm is where the cable would pull to release the hood, try going from under the front of car and also from the grill area,this is not easy but can be done.

Bonnet cable brook on bmw 3 series


Okay, so the hood latch cable on your BMW 3 series has broken. Normally the cable itself will snap and a you can purchase a new cable that can be threaded through the casing and reconnected to the hood latch. You will need to get the hood open, so hopefully there will be some access to the hood latch mechanism from underneath the front of the vehicle.
