SOURCE: 99 chevy malibu hood release problems

We have the same problem with our malibu. What I found is that the hood release handle inside the car gets stuck on the housing around the driver's side feet. Check if your handle is getting stuck there too because I thought for the longest time that the cable was the problem.

Hi: Have someone push down on the hood while you pull the release cable, while cable pulled have them lift up on the hood and it should release. Hood is probably released but stuck, latch out of adjustment or hood support rubbers ( located on rad support) are set to high causing latch to be to tight.

SOURCE: Broken hood release on 98 chev 1500. How can I get it open?

those are cable operated if it's broke at the lever in the car find the cable end and pull it with a pliers, if it's broke at the release under the hood it's going to a little harder you will have to get up under the hood and manually release the hood before you can replace the release lever

SOURCE: how to open a chevy s10 hood I have a broken the

not easy. depending on where it is broken, if its broken at the handle, you can try a pair of vice grips on the cable where the handle would go on. if its broken further down, you can take a flashlight to the front grille and peek through to see where the cable goes into the latch. take a long screwdriver to try to pry the latch back just as the cable would pull it.

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..!!
