SOURCE: where is the latch for opening the hood ?

The red release latch is down under the dash on the extreme left hand side. A release tongue should stick out from the radiator grill when the latch is opened. Pulling on this tongue will release the hood When you open the hood the angle is initially restricted to about 45 degrees which is fine for minor jobs. If you need extra room, the left hand hinge has a latch pin which can be swung inwards to allow the hood to move up to about 50 degrees. Releasing the second latch pin on the right hand hinge allows the hood to go vertical. You will have to release the left hand hinge latch pin to close the hood.

lube the latch mechanism and with a screw driver try to lock the latch. if it latches then you need to loosen the latch and move it up. if it doesnt lock make sure where the cable pulls on the latch popped back in. if the lock where the cable is popped back in and it still wont latch it maybe worn out and needs replaced

Don't pull up on the front, but press down hard, while someone pulls on the handle.

Try whacking it some more there, too, while latch is being pulled. Another place to hit is at rear of hood on driver's side.
If it still won't open, you may have to get your hand on the hood latch to move the lever that the handle cable attaches to. The lever would have to move towards the driver's side to pop the latch. Sometimes a long screwdriver poked up from underneath may reach the latch. Or you may be able to get your hand in past the grill, or remove the grill to get your hand to the latch.
When you do get it open, put a few drops of oil on the latch mechanism, and see if any adjustments can be made to open it easier either on the hood itself, or the latch mechanism. Just about all cars have a way to adjust the latch.
Good luck.

Trunk pop open when driving


close hood and lift up on hood to see if it stays closed.
if not, check inside car to see if latch(that you pull) is in the correct position. you can tell when hood is closed that there will be some tension on latch.
check under hood, where hood closes on latch of hood, is tight and secure(no loose bolts)
also check cable if broken.
only those things can cause hood to pop open.
if all visual inspections check out and still continues to open while driving then the latch (the mechanism that hold the hood down) is bad. vibrating while driving will cause it to open.

Hood release not working


you will have to pop the mechanism open from under the car this may be a little difficult you will need a very long screw driver or a pry bar and hopefully you be able to see the latch from under the car.if you can then reach up and manually release the latch once open you will have to replace your cable or the cable tie down which ever is bad. if not you will have to make a new release that you can use on the outside of the car.

Widow w/ E430 Mercedes dead battery. Can't get hood to pop. Does battery affect this? The battery is completely dead. Can't open trunk with key either to get to my manual.


THE HOOD IS MECHANICAL MEANING ITS JUST A WIRE PULLING A LATCH. HAVE SOMEONE PULL UP ON THE HOOD AS YOU PULL THE LEVER TO OPEN THE HOOD. IF THE BATTERY IS DEAD THEN GO TO THE REAR SEAT. ON BOTH SIDE RIGHT AND LEFT, JUST UNDERNEATH THE REAR SEATS ARE THESE LITTLE HOLES . FIT YOUR FINGERS IN THERE AND PRESS UP ON THE SEAT. DO THE SAME TO THE OTHER ISDE. THE BATTERY IS THERE UNDER ALL THAT STUFF. JUMP IT FROM THERE.

There is NOT a mechanical connection to the outside door handles on the front doors. There is an electronic "door popping solenoid" This is a electronic problem. I think there was a recall on this.

Hood is stuck, can't get it to pop


Pull the Release again and go to the Hood and then Lightly knock on the hood with your Fist around the Area where the Latch is Located. Do Not Push down on it Just Knock on it with an Upward Motion.

HOOD RELEASE CABLE BROKE, HOW DO I OPEN HOOD?


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.
