SOURCE: Need to open hood manually from outside

it can be done thru the front of the grille , locate the cable coming from the latch mecanism , and cut partially thru the cable to gain access to the inner cable that does the opening of the latch.

it takes a little time an it will be a bit frustrating but it can be done ! I hope all goes well with plowing !

SOURCE: Replacing front turn signal bulb on 2006 Cadillac SRX

wow i feel sorry for you because Cadillac designed this bulb to be a don't get to bulb but OK here's what you do take the bottom cover off or skid plastic panel under neath the front end theirs little plastic clips holding it on just get come dikes and don't cut them but just use it to help pull them out. after you get that off use a flash light and locate your light housing you should see two screws holding the house in i think those screws are 8mm i cant remember remove those two screws and be careful the metal from the bumper cuts you pull the light housing out and remove all the screws around the housing and open the housing up replace the bulb and make sure your contact to the bulbs clean and then reassemble the way you took apart. if you cant get it well then best bet is take it somewhere i know Cadillac charges an arm and a leg so you can go somewhere else.

SOURCE: Hood Won't Open, and Lever Broke

Hi viper852004 , the only way you can do this is to remove the front grills and then you will be able to see the 2 sprung bonnet pegs, you will need to loosen the adjusting nut where it screws into the hood and unscrew it until it becomes unattatched from the hood, do this for both pegs and then you should be able to release the hood to fix the problem. the pegs will need to be reinstalled before driving the car as the hood will not close, hope this is of some help, regards mark.

SOURCE: 99 toyota corrolla hood latch is broken. Can't

There is a rachet right below the hood that you can reach from radiator grill.
Take a long thin screw driver, reach it and turn that rachet.
You will hear the "click" sound and the hood will pop open.

SOURCE: Can't open 94 Suburban hood. Latch is no longer

you can open it with a long thin screwdriver. Look thru the center top of the grill. You should be able to see the cable running to the latch. Follow the cable to the end and you should be able to get in there with the screw driver and fish around to get it to unlatch. After you get it open you can tie a piece of wire to the latch sticking out of the grill to pull on and release it till you can get it repaired. Most likely the cable or pull handle is broken

Broken hood release latch


Well, hard to tell the exact cause without seeing it, but if you mean the hood latch itself, you may have to reach up from under the engine bay and release it manually, remove it and replace it, any good auto parts store would have or could order one. If it's the cable, you could try pulling it with vise grips or pliers - assuming it's even reachable. Best case scenario, the release handle has just separated from the cable, could be re-attached or replaced easily enough. If you manage to open the hood, get someone to pull the release a few times so you can find the cable, follow it both ways and you may find the problem. Wish I could be more help, good luck.

Need to replace headlights


Open the hood of your SRX and disconnect the connector from rear of headlight by squeeaing the tabs. Pull off rubber dust cover. Rotate the collar on the headlight counterclockwise and pull it out of the headlight assembly. Insert new light and turn clockwise to lock it in place, DO NOT TOUCH THE BULB WITH YOUR FINGERS, THE OIL DEPOSITED FROM DOING THIS WILL CAUSE THE BULB TO OVERHEAT, LOWERING THE LIFE OF THE BULB CONSIDERABLY! use paper or something that is oil and dirt free. Replace dust cover and reconnect the power connector.
