I still don't get "opens outwards"

SOURCE: HOOD RELEASE CABLE BROKE, HOW

After trying to pull the cable from under the hood and accidently working it loose from the latch, I had a mechanic come out to the vehicle, and he drilled two 3/4" holes that lined up with the latch mounting screws so that he could dismount the latch mechanism from the body of the Jeep. Then the whole latch assembly came loose with the hood. Next, he reattached the latch, and then attached a wire to the latch so that it can be pulled to work the mechanism without the old cable at all, though at the expense of security, because now it can be opened from outside the vehicle, but it's difficult to find unless you know what you're looking for. This might be a little more than most people are willing to do, but it worked for me.

SOURCE: can't open hood

if you can still get to the little steel cable, a extremely tight pair of vise grips and a moderate amount of force will do the trick.

SOURCE: Broken tab to hood release cable

Get a long screwdriver and try to release the secondary latch that way. Or if you have small hands reach up under the hood and pull the secondary latch toward the left.

How do you open the hood on 85 cad Seville cable broke


Sometimes not easy... Is cable broke at inside handle or at latch under hood? If you can get hold of broken cable inside with some pliers, just pull cable. That usually works. But not sure where your break is. Getting to latch to release is what can be difficult. Also having an extra hand (someone out side tapping on hood or pulling up slightly) while tring to pull cable with pliers

Pulled latch, but hood won't open on 97 dodge ram van


If you pull out on hood release & it feels like some resistance cable is not broken. Have someone pull release & hold pulled outward while you hit the front of the hood near grill, with palms of your hands. If it releases upward, release 2nd catch. Raise hood & locate plastic or rubber hood stops. There is one on each side of hood screwed into radiator core support. Raise each one an even full turn. This will allow it to release properly.
