How do I open the hood on my car if the release latch in the car breaks and it won't release when I pull on the cable under the kick panel with a pliers?


Depending upon how your Dodge was constructed, it may be necessary to access the latch from underneath. A straightened wire coat hanger is a useful substitute for the release cable. You will need a bright light source to find where to hook the hanger and pull. Someone will have to press down on the hood to release latch tension and allow release.

Hood Latch Cable Broke


Someone with a lot of patience and persistence can use a strong piece of wire such as a straightened coat hanger to release a hood latch from underneath the car. It is a good idea to have someone press down on the hood to release spring tension. Yanking on the inside release won't accomplish much. I have done this task. It wasn't fun

94 nissan pickup latch wont open hood?


The hood latch cable pulls a lever over towards driver's side of car to open the hood. Pulling the lever releases the hood latch.
This is the lever that is not moving over far enough to release, and the one you need to get to. You are right to think of removing the grill. Is it easy to remove? Often, someone can lay underneath and reach up with a prying tool (a screwdriver) and push that lever over. But if it's too far to reach, or if it's obstructed by parts or support pieces, just remove the grill to reach the latch.
Good luck.

I am working on a 2000 Mercury Cougar and the hood latch won't release when the handle is pulled. I can hear something moving under the front of the hood when the lever is pulled but nothing happens. ...


yes you have to go into the chamber from underneath with a crow bar or similar tool to release the hood latch. once opened check the cable and the latch and with a little luck a few squirts of WD40 is all that will be needed.

Trying too find the hood relies on a 1968 cougar XR7


Hello buttercup666...For 1985-88 models, the latch was moved to the left kick panel, below the parking brake release. Once you've pulled the latch, the hood will pop up about an inch. To further open the hood, stand directly in front of the grille and use your left hand to push up the release under the hood. The release is slightly to the left of center.
Good luck i hope this helps, please rate my response a fixya

2000 cougar hood cable has broken at the hood, how can I open it


You may be able to get underneath the front bumper enough to where you can see the latch. If you can see the latch you may be able to pull on the linkages enough to pop the hood. I used a coathanger on my old car to pull the wire that ran from the latch itself to the actuator where the wire from inside the cabin ran. I hope this helped. answer back if you need clarification.

Hood release is broken...need to open hood


A hood release works with a cable that pulls the latch open. if you have a long flat head screw-driver you can try to spring the latch itself through the front grill.

Where is hood latch on 99 Geo Tracker


It is in the glove compartment to keep theives from opening the hood and stealing the vehicle or engine parts. Since the vehicle is a Jeep-style convertible, the interior is not secure.

To open the hood do the following (I own a 1997)

open the glove box.
reach up and to the right and you will feel the handle.
Pull handle.

The hood will still look closed, so you have to lift up on the front of the hood and then push the internal release, whioch is in the middle of the front of the hood.

E-mail me w/ any questions @ cskalski@cox.net

First of all is this chat free? if not I will continue to serach online the hood latch on a 2005 chevy impala is not working and I need to know how to open the hood without the interior hood release


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.
