I can't open the hood of my van

If the handle is just broken use pliers to pull the cable that hooks to the handle.
If the cable is broken you will have to work through the grill. You will see on the drivers side of the hood latch where the cable enters. You can remove the cable holding bolt if applicable and pull the cable there.
If all that fails you will have to remove teh latch by removing the 2 screws on both sides of the latch.

Olsmobile Silhouette latch stuck

Hi, my name is tommy.The easiest way to get the hood to open is have someone else stand outside the vehicle & push the hood down while you pull the release.It should release and when you get it open grease up the latch (wheel bearing grease works fine)and it should solve the problem.Hope i have been helpful.Have a good day.
