First, determine why it's not working. Does the pull lever feel normal or is it unusually free or difficult to pull? Free is a broken cable,,, diff to pull is a frozen latch.Try having someone put some pressure on the hood where the latch is, then try to pull the handle.If frozen, this sometimes takes pressure off it and makes it easier to unlatch.
If the cable is broken, sometimes you can snake a stiff piece of wire up from under the front of the car and then pull ******* the cable itself. sometimes this will work.If you can see the latch mechanism from either beneath the edge of the hood or from underneath, use the stiff wire to pull on the bare part of the latch cable.

    Yes... the process is pretty much generic to any vehicle with a cable latch. The object is to get to the latch and operate it manually, or, "unstick" it if it's stuck. (without damaging anything else in the process) Obvilously, be careful you dont damage the radiator or a/c condenser when using a wire. On older cars, you used to be able to actually get your arm up there and trip the latch manually! You didn't mention if the thing is stuck or if the cable is broken!

Where is adjustment screw for headlights on 2008 impalla


Vic, the adjuster is either a allen key, torx, or #2 philips type bolt found close to the bolt that is holding headlight in place on inner fender rail/flange. I believe on the Impala the only adjustment is up and down of the light beam. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

My 2005 jeep liberty front hood will not close all the way because of the latch. My fingers can run across the bottom of the hood and I don't need the latch release inside the jeep to loosen the hood.


Try spraying the latch mechanism with WD40 or other good solvent and working it manually by hand till it frees up. Likely it's rusted and binding. Right now, it's probably stuck in the open position.

I cant find the horn. it is not working as well, all my fuses are good. I do not know how to check the relays. 2004 chevy impala


Remove the plastic air deflector surrounding the hood latch assembly & disconnect the electical connector from the horn. Try a jumper wire to make sure it's the horn that's the problem. Check the horn relay also in the engine compartment fuse block cover. Good luck!

2005 Chevy Impala exhaust smell


neither one of these would cause gas to leak. sure it is not coolant ? if you think it is gas it is not safe to drive car as it could catch on fire. possible cause would be a leaking injector.
