You would have to acess the hood latch from underneath the car up through the grill area. Also if the cable broke off flush, you can cut back the liner and use pliers on the exposed cable. A new cable would come with the liner and all anyway.

In the windshield wiper area on both sides of the car you will see a rubber plug about 1 inch in diameter. Use a flatblade screw driver (about 8-10 inches) and poke this plug out of its hole into the engine compartment (you can recover it later.) Insert your screwdriver through the hole until you find the release latch. Just push it until it releases.

Welcome to FixYa.com


You will need access from under neath front and reach up to latch - use a screw driver and pop release.

There is a latch under the dash along the left side wall. Just pull it up and it will release the hood. Then go outside and push the entire hood forward and then up.

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.

325i Hood won't open after front end collision


with out seeing a pic of the damage, you need to pull the latch inside & then go pull the latch out side, some times both have to be done simultaniously,two people, you may need to make a wire pulling device with a coat hanger to pull the out side catch latch at the top of the hood. Good luck
