SOURCE: hood will not release

You need to remove the black plastic mud guard from under the bumper, use a 10 or 12 mm socket with extention to reach the hood latch from under the car, un bolt the latch and lift the hood up to repair. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: stuck hood release

first, try smacking the hood at one of the front corners while someone else pulls the release handle. or even after you've pulled on it. if that works, once open, adjust and lubricate the hood latch assembly. if it still won't open, and it's the cable and not the latch you'll have to replace it anyway, so instead of removing the grill, cut the cable behind the pull lever under the dash where you can reach it. then skin the outer cable insulation away from the actual steel cable exposing an inch or two of it. then holding the insulation and plastic housing with pliers, grab the steel cable itself with pliers and pull it to open the hood. then replace the cable. the further you can reach up under the panel the better your chances of getting past the broken part of the cable and avoid removing the grill. you might also be able to gain access from up under the car if you're lucky.

2005 quattro , battery is dead and hood wont release.Is it an elecrtonic release?


Heidi, No electric release. The latch is probably stuck. While you pull the interior hood release have an assistant push down and pull up repeatably/vigorously until hood releases from stuck position. Lube latch and cable before closing hood. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

My 2004 Lexus GX 470 has a stuck hood and the battery is dead. I can hear a clicking noise when I pull the hood release lever but still hood is stuck shut. Does anyone have any ideas?


Have someone pull the hood release for you, and you bang the hood several times with your fist...if this works lubricate your hood lock before you close it.

How to open the hood when the hood release is not working.


Pull the release and have someone hit the hood with there hand in the middle of the hood, by the latch/front. Then adjust the latch upwards. If the cable is broke then go from the bottom and push the release left or right to release. Follow the cable.

How do i replace my throwout bearing in my 03 mazda protege5 my pedal lost pressure and remains to the floor...it won't release


If the pedal is stuck on the floor than it sounds like either a bad slave cylinder or you run the master out of fluid. Can you pull the pedal up off the floor with your hand? If our can I would be more suspicious of the slave cylinder. Usually there will be some signs of leakage around the rubber boot of the slave cylinder.

2000 Jimmy- 3 problems- 1. Heater just blows cold air 2. Can't get the hood latch to release even when pulled all the way with vigor 3. Rear window wiper stuck in upright position and won't respond to...


The no heat problem could be a stuck open thermostat, plugged heater core, the air mix/mode actuator, or the control module. You might be able to have someone push down on the hood while pulling the hood release to get the hood open, the latches often stick, or the release cable maybe stretched and not operating the latch enough to release it. The rear wiper motor is probably bad.

Hood release under the dash has no tension on it. Hood will not latch closed


The latch is stuck in the open position. I always found white lithium grease worked best on those latches but any good lubricant will work. Try moving the latch manually with a screwdriver. After applying the lubricant move the latch a few times. You should see the tension return to the release, if it doesn't you have a broken release cable.
