The hood latch handle on my 1995 jeep gr cher broke ! Is there a way I can get the hood unlatched? It broke all the way down to the bracket that holds it in place.


You can get a replacement at any scrapyard. To open the hood, carefully cut the outer covering on the cable under the dash and pull the inner cable with a pair of pliers. Or if the plastic part of the pull is just gone, grab the shaft with pliers and pull that without cutting anything.

EITHER SPRAY SOME WD 40 ON THE HOOD LATCH OR SOME 3 IN 1 OIL. THAT SHOULD DO THE TRICK. I JUST HAD THE SAME THING HAPPEN WITH MY FULL SIZE BLAZER. HAVEN'T HAD ANY ISSUES SINCE. JAKE.B

Cable broke on my 1997 jeep cherokee, how do i pop the hood?


depends on where it broke if it broke off on the release end inside you can take off the kick panel and remove the release bracket then go up about 3-4 inches and cut the casing around the cable and grab the cable with a pair of pliers and pop the hood. then you can replace the assembly with a new one.

Cable broke on hood latch of 95 cherokee cant get hood to pop


first, try smacking the hood at one of the front corners while someone else pulls the release handle. or even after you've pulled on it. if that works, once open, adjust and lubricate the hood latch assembly. if it still won't open, and it's the cable and not the latch you'll have to replace it anyway, so instead of removing the grill, cut the cable behind the pull lever under the dash where you can reach it. then skin the outer cable insulation away from the actual steel cable exposing an inch or two of it. then holding the insulation and plastic housing with pliers, grab the steel cable itself with pliers and pull it to open the hood. then replace the cable. the further you can reach up under the panel the better your chances of getting past the broken part of the cable and avoid removing the grill. you might also be able to gain access from up under the car if you're lucky.

It can be a pain, even for a skill mechanic, BUT you have to get under and trip the leaver or sometime if the cable broke on the inside you can strip the cable shroud and use plyers to pull the cable

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


NO there is no manual way . get a good flash light and look at teh latch through the grill or from under the truck and try and pop it with a long flat blade screw driver

HOOD RELEASE CABLE BROKE, HOW DO I OPEN HOOD?


After trying to pull the cable from under the hood and accidently working it loose from the latch, I had a mechanic come out to the vehicle, and he drilled two 3/4" holes that lined up with the latch mounting screws so that he could dismount the latch mechanism from the body of the Jeep. Then the whole latch assembly came loose with the hood. Next, he reattached the latch, and then attached a wire to the latch so that it can be pulled to work the mechanism without the old cable at all, though at the expense of security, because now it can be opened from outside the vehicle, but it's difficult to find unless you know what you're looking for. This might be a little more than most people are willing to do, but it worked for me.
