SOURCE: Broken hood release cable 1996 Ford F150 pickup

On each side of the latch there is an 8mm screw that can be removed through the front, between the hood and grill They are aprox 6" apart.

The latch itself has two locator pins that slide into the front suppoprt behind the grill.

After removing the two screws, gently pry the whole latch away from the support. The hood can be raised, taking the latch with it.

Access to the release lever is behind the latch. It is now exposed.
pull the tiny release lever toward the drivers side and latch will come loose. Good luck!

Ford Expedition Eddie Bauer 1998 hood latch spring replacement


Ford Expedition 1998 hood latch spring replacement. If your hood won't latch on the secondary latch, but does on the first, and when you pull the hood handle from the drivers dash, from here you should feel a pull when opening the hood. It should feel like you are opening the hood. However, the secondary latch is not latching. You may have a spring broken in the latch lock.

I had this problem. Mind you, I am 115lb, 40 year old lady. I was told to leave it alone, bring it to someone who knows what they are doing or I would have to tie it up with rope..lol.....I was up for the challenge.

Open the hood, disconnect the battery, find your latch. It is in the middle of the truck, by the grill in the front -under the hood. You may have to remove the plastic covering that shields the radiator. There should be 6 plastic screw caps found right where you can see them, and 2 plastic pop off caps closer to the engine. I had to step on the bumper to see them. Next, with a marker, mark the location of the lock. I put a line across the top onto the truck, and on the sides of the lock. This is so when I put it back I don't have to do any adjustments. Don't forget to mark the placement of the screws on the lock. With an 8mm socket, place the socket on the two bolts holding the lock in place. I didn't need to take anything apart to get to the lock, just a little pull on the plastic you should see in front of the lock. However, I would suggest you taking the sensor cable off of the latch. I didn't need to remove mine. I was very careful in handling the cable and the lock. Please remember to keep the screws and bolts (if any) to the side, you will need to put them back on. Once you have the lock out of it's place, carefully bring it out about 4-6 inches (it should almost lie on the metal for you to see inside). Here you should see if you have a broken spring. The lock should only have two. One spring is about 2.5 inches, and the lower one is about 1.5 inches. My problem what the 1.5 inch spring. I took out the broken spring, and using a flat head screw driver, I latch the spring on. I then had my daughter pull the hood handle, shabang! It worked. I reversed my steps in putting the latch, bolts, screws, and battery back together. I didn't need to adjust any of it since I marked the placements. It has been working great ever since.

Tailgate latches wont function


I had a similar problem. Rust can be a pain in the ***! It might be best to hit the junkyards for a replacement ! Then spray the hell out of it with rust inhibitor. The one you have probably has bent control rods, broken springs and bent or cracked latches. I had the '95 F150 with extended cab...it rusted so badly it was dropping parts all over the road just before I dumped it last year.
