How do i open the hood on a 2002 honda accord coupe? cable is broken.


I go up from under the car, it helps if it is on a lift. If not, get high up on ramps, or jack stands. Remove the splash shield and reach up with a long, hooked tool. You can see the latch, and trip the release with the tool. Hope this helps. Remember to have the car safely lifted up with at least 2 types of support, in case 1 fails.

The cable broke that releases the hood on my 1995 Honda Accord and now the release latch inside the foot well does not work and the hood does not open. Is there an emergency way to open the hood? I have a...


There is no emergency latch. The best way to get it open is to remove the cable from the release latch in the footwell, then use a pair of pliers to pull the cable and open the hood. You might even have to strip the cable covering back a little to get to the cable.

Hood wire is out from the latch at the hood end...how to open the hood (1997 Honda accord)


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.

Cant open the hood


Most likely a broken cable. The actual latch assembly can be accessed from underneath the front of the car.just follow the cable to the end (It will be close to the center of the underneath of the hood) , and take a pair of pliers and pull the wire part of the cable, that should manually release the hood.

2000 Honda Prelude hood won't fully shut


Cable is sticking, look at hood latch and push down on the thin cable. It will allow the hood to shut. my 96 Accord does the same thing.

2003 ranger.the hood will not open. i think cable is loose /broke


You will need 2 people to get the hood open. While you pull on the hood release cable have an assistant gently pound on the center of the hood until it pops up. If this does not work, inspect the hood release lever to see if the pivot broken, if so pull directly on the cable with a pair of locking pliers. After you get the hood open make sure to spray the latch with penetrating oil (WD40)

1986 Honda Accord: The hood will NOT open!!!


Use a flashlight and look in & up through the grille & you may be able to see where the sleeve of the cable runs to the latch. When you look at it, should allow you to figure out which way to pull or pry to get it to release hopefully.
