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.

2012 Kia Rio cannot get the hood open the cable is off the lever in cab, any help??


Shoot PB Blaster or some other spray lube through the grille and up towards the latch. Then use a pliers to pull the cable. Once you get it open shoot the latch with spray lithium grease and work it in. A rusted corrorded latch is what makes the cable break off the lever

Will a hood from an 09 Kia Rio fit a 06 Kia Rio?


The only way to know for sure is to have them side by side to compare the measurements of hinges & hood latch.I would do this before I purchase.

Hood latch will not open or release hood. Kia Rio 5 2007


Did you try having someone push down on the hood above the latch while you pull the release? If not, try that and if it opens you can adjust it.

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:

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.
