SOURCE: Hood latch on 05 kia amanti wont release hood how

Have some one hold the hood release lever open while you push down on the front of the hood. You may have to repeat this a few times and the latch should release. After you get it open make sure to lube both the latch mechanism as well as the cable. This should take care of your problem.

2009 kia rio hood release isnt workng


Try this it worked for me. Use two people, one pull the lever inside vehicle and the other lifts up on hood at same time. It might take a couple try and if this works spray latch with wd40. You also could have a broken cable

Kia Borrego washer fluid won't spray with hood latched


It is very likely that it is getting pinched between the hood and rubber seal. The red arrows show the pinch point and any hose trapped in between will pinch.

Check the routing again and make sure that the hood seal interference is not the cause. Your description almost perfectly meets the condition that the squeeze only occurs at the last few inches of the hood closure.

How do i open the hood manually the latch is broken. i have a black covered cable wire and the silver part of the wire is showing. i pull the latch nothing happens to release the hood


OK, if the cable is the part that broke AND it broke at the handle, then you can use a pliers or vise grip to grab the end and pull on it to pop the hood, if it broke somewhere inside the cable, then you will need some needle nosed pliers to reach under the hood and grab it there. if it broke off at the hood latch itself, then you will need to get/ make a hook or pushing rod to engage the mechanism directly to release the latch and then replace the cable the latch looks like this:

Looks like the hood release is broken for my car how can i open the hood manually?


check to see if the cable came loose from the lever, there may even be an adjustment there. if not and the cable is still connected try subverting the lever by using pliers to grip and pull the cable. sometimes the latches just get sticky, try having a buddy bump the hood where the latch is while you manipulate the lever, if this works spray latch with wd-40 and check to see if there is an adjustment you can make at that point

Broken hood cable for a '07 kia optima. how do I get the hood open?


I think that it is unlikely that the cable on a car that new has broken. More likely a sticky latch. Have someone push down and then lift on the hood while you are pulling the release handle.
Hopefully it will open , be sure to lube the latch mechanisim up with something before you close the hood so that it works next time.
