Latch cable for hood broke at latch on 04 tribute how do i get the hood opened?


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

2010 Mazda Mazda3 hood release broken... How do I get the hood open?


You can use a some pliers and aluminum wire to open a car hood if the latch is broken. You will also need a light to shine towards the latch. Try to connect the wire around the latch that will release the hook for the hood.

Fig. Fig. 3: Have an assistant secure the hood, then remove the retaining bolts

  1. Have an assistant hold the hood in the up position. Remove the hood support and remove the hinge-to-hood bolts.
  2. Remove the hood from the vehicle.

To install:
  1. Position the hood against the hinges, using the marks made previously on the hood to help with alignment.
  2. Have an assistant hold the hood. Install the hinge-to-hood bolts, the hood support and the hood support bolts. If so equipped, install the washer hose.
  3. Tighten all bolts securely and check the hood for proper alignment.


ALIGNMENT

Hood
The hood is provided with up-and-down and side-to-side adjustments.

  1. To make the side-to-side adjustments:
    1. Loosen the hood attaching bolts and move the hood to the proper position, then tighten the attaching bolts.
    2. Repeat the procedure if necessary.

  2. To make the up-and-down adjustment (at the rear of the hood):
    1. Loosen the hood stop bolts.
    2. Using a screwdriver, turn the hood stop screws clockwise to lower the hood and counterclockwise to raise the hood. Hood is at the proper height when it is flush with the fenders.
    3. Tighten the hood stop bolts.
    4. Repeat the procedure if necessary.


Hood Latch
See Figure 4
  1. Make sure that the hood is properly aligned.
  2. Remove the hood latch attaching bolts. Move them as necessary to align with the latch dowel. Tighten the attaching bolts.
  3. Remove the locknut on the hood latch dowel, and turn the dowel clockwise to pull the hood tighter and counterclockwise to loosen it. The proper height is when the top of the hood is flush with the fenders.
  4. Tighten the dowel locknut after the proper adjustment has been obtained.

How do you open a mazda 6 hood? I try the release inside the car but the hood wont open, like its still locked. Is there some kind of switch to pull at the front of the car after i pull the lever in the...


the hood should pull up about 2 inches after pulling hood release in vehicle..then there will be one more locking mech. you will need to unlatch..you should be able to feel it in the center of hood..after the hood raises 2 inches..if it does not raise you need a lube service on your latch..you can do it your self ..might need to give the center of the hood a little tug or bump first to release..then wd40 and white grease will loosen it up so you can open and close it about 5 more times to make sure its nice and free

My mazda 626 rattles when in drive and the ac is on


It may be the catalytic converter or exhaust pipe heat shield(s), with the park brake set and ac on at ilde push on the sheet metal shields with a broom stick and see if the noise stops. It works best with someone in the car to listen for noise changes.
