SOURCE: Hood Won't Open, and Lever Broke

Hi viper852004 , the only way you can do this is to remove the front grills and then you will be able to see the 2 sprung bonnet pegs, you will need to loosen the adjusting nut where it screws into the hood and unscrew it until it becomes unattatched from the hood, do this for both pegs and then you should be able to release the hood to fix the problem. the pegs will need to be reinstalled before driving the car as the hood will not close, hope this is of some help, regards mark.

SOURCE: 2000 Mitsubishi Eclipse hood latch cable is broken

one way would be to take off the bumber and pry it open. these cars should have back up plans but they dont. lol once you get it open try going to a junk yard and taking one out of another car. if not then buy one and get it put in professionally because its very difficult to do.

SOURCE: 2000 jeep cherokee 4wd hood latch system broken - how do I open

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

SOURCE: broke hood latch cable pulling it

You may be able to disconnect the cable behind the broken pull, then use a set of pliers to activate (pull) the cable within the sleeve - Otherwise you'll probably have to see a mechanic or body shop, as they are difficult to access when the hood lock is engaged...

SOURCE: hood latch cable broke how do I open hood?

You'll have to remove part of the grill and try to access the latch from inside. Yoy may have to unbolt the entire thing, but make sure you mark it 1st so that you know how to put it back in the EXACT spot it came from. Then once out, you can extracate it from the latch pin on the hood, replace your cable and start fresh. Good luck, this is one of those things that no matter how long you've been working on cars, its always hard to do!

How to open hood cable broke


With quite some (intentional) difficulty and a long screwdriver, you can access the latch mechanism from underneath and behind the front bumper. Underskirt covers and other stuff will have to be removed.

How to open the hood when the inside hood release malfunctions?


If the cable broke you would first need to get under the car in the front. You look strait up in the middle, you will see the latch. Then you will also see where the cable goes into the latch, there is an arm that it hooks to. You will need to move that arm in the direction that the cable pulls it, which is towards the drivers side of the car. This will release the hood. Then you just pull up on the release arm and open the hood!

2000 Chevy Blazer with Broken Hood Release. How do I open the hood


can you reach the cable itself?,or is it broke at the hood latch?IF its not broken at the outside latch, try to follow the cable,un-hook it from the handle and pull on the wire cable to open it.IF its broken at the latch itself,you are going to have to reach the latch through the grille and try to pull the lever the cable connects to.That part is no fun at all..!!

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.
