If you try to look inside( between the hood and the grill) , you will see the latch with two bolts holding into it.remove the two bolts using a extended tool.then the hood will released.

How do I open hood when cable or latch is broken


If the plastic hood release handle inside is broken, can you reach the steel cable, if so, use a pair of vice grips to grab the cable and pull. Sometimes it helps to have a helper standing at the end of the hood and pop the hood with palm of hand, in the area of under hood release mechanism, at the same time your pulling the cable.

If cable is broken, some makes and models, you can remove front grille and get at under hood release mechanism.

There is usually a primary hood release, inside vehicle, and a secondary release under the hood, you have to slide your hand under the hood to release, sometimes you have to press down on the hood a little to move release. Trying to shut the hood with secondary release engaged can be difficult, you don't have the distance and the weight of hood to swing down.

Hood wont open


It may be that your hood release cable that runs from the hood release is broken. You'r going to have to try and manually release the hood latch by tripping the release through the grill with something like a long screwdriver. You should be able to identify the latch trigger by following the cable to end.
You might also try having push down on the hood while another person tries to trip the latch if the cable isn't broken, but just stuck.

The release handle for the hood is not opening the hood on our 1994 chevy astro van . Can we open it manually and then try to see if it became unattached?


you can open it by going either underneath the front of the car and reaching up to move the latch arm to unlock the hood or try going through the grill to move the latch arm to unlock the hood.then you can see if its unhooked or the cable is broken.you can temporarily fix it until it can be properly fixed by hooking up a cable to the latch arm and run it out the grill and fasten something to it so it won`t fall into an area you can`t reach it to unlock it from outside.
