SOURCE: Hood release on 95 S-10 inoperable

Have one person pull the hood release inside cab while the other person pushes down on front center of hood.  One might have to push down a few times before it releases.  This only works for stretched cable not broken cable.

SOURCE: broken hood latch cable

The best way to gain access is to remove the grille. Look in the holes of the grille and you'll see screws that hold the grille in place. Unscrew these and pull the grille out, then you can gain access to the bottom side of the hood latch with a screw driver to pop it open.
When replacing the release cable, be sure to grease the wear points at the latch and where the cable connects.

SOURCE: I can,t get my hood

It actually is going to depend upon where the break in the cable is. I'm basing this on the model year but you might check to see if any of the cable is still extended & broken where it connects to the lever that you use to open it. If you can see the broken strands/cable you can easily clamp onto that with vice-grips, or similar pliers & pull on the exposed cable to open it.

IF you cannot see the cable, you are limited as the whole intent of the cable system was to prevent anyone from opening the hood without the release cable. You can attempt to determine where it broke based upon the cable you pull out of it (the part still connected to the release handle), cut the cable past that point without cutting the inner, "pull" cable, then pull on the exposed cable once out. Get your replacement cable at the dealer or local salvage yard.

Check under the hood latch opening area to see if the small cable could be snagged & pulled but that's a slim chance.

Finally, Body shops are the best at getting to things like this since they usually have to dissasemble those parts for repairs, they would be well suited to remove other parts to gain access. good luck

Hood latch cable broke need to open hood


The hood release cable seems to be malfunctioning on my 2001 Pathfinder SE. The inside release handle pulls without much restance and does not return to it's proper position. The hood does not unlatch. It seems that the cable is broken. How do I open the hood?

It actually is going to depend upon where the break in the cable is. I'm basing this on the model year but you might check to see if any of the cable is still extended & broken off at the lever you use to open it. If you can see the broken strands you can easily clamp onto that with vice-grips, or similar pliers & pull on the exposed cable to open it. IF you cannot see the cable, you are limited as the whole intent of the cable system was to prevent anyone from opening the hood without the release cable. You can attempt to determine where it broke based upon the cable you pull out of it, cut the cable past that point without cutting the inner, "pull" cable, then pull on the exposed cable once out.

Next step would be to do some fishing out under the hood opening area to see if the small cable could be snagged & pulled but that's a slim chance.

How do I open hood on a 2005 montana when hood cabnle is broken


pull the broken cable down from under the dash, cut back the cable sheath to expose the wire cable inside, then use a good pair of vise grips to pull the stub of the broken steel cable to open the hood.

Hood release broke


you are going to have to either remove the panneling to get at the cable and pull it with vise grip or try to get up inside the hood from the front and release the latch that way . either way is going to be tough to get to.

1998 S-10 blazer broken hood cable


i believe you can remove the grille without opening the hood and that will give you access to the hood release so you can open it manually and then fix the broken cable
Hope this helps!

Hood won't open. Cable is broken and can't get hood to pop.

Hood latch release cable broken


ok if you can access the end of the cable from inside the car try using a set of vise grips to hold it and carefully pull to open the hood. if you need to access the latch from the grill its a tight squeeze but I recall that a thin screw driver was able to move the lever to release the latch. see the attached pic the unit is upside down try to push the lever towards the drivers side http://www.worldimpex.com/assets/partimages/043694.jpg
