You'll have to track down the cable from underneath the engine compartment,, cut the cable with some wire snips and use a pair of pliers to pull the cable.

Loose hood cord 95' civic, first I had to push the little latch that makes the hood shut completely with a screw driver now it won't even open (the hood) I pulled on the cable with pliers but no...


Just perform some checks please,
  • try to pull the hood release lever with its cable tightly pulled towards you.
  • that may tighten the loose cable so a release can happen
  • then pull out the hood piece hard, so the lock would release.
  • trimming is not a good idea, because it would be hard to set it back into the assembly.
  • try this, good luck. vote it!!

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.

Would a 1984-1987 Honda Civic sedan/CRX hood release cable work as a replacement for the 1984 Honda Civic wagovan hood release cable?


The dimensions of those cars are nearly identical, so I would be highly surprised if it didn't fit. If it is only a cable you should be just fine. Those things have a high level of interchangeability.

Hood release cable level inside of car works but wont release hood . how i get it to release to get hood to pop . so i can open hood


Have someone press down on the hood while you pull the cable.Most likely the latch is just sticking and needs a good shot of penetrating oil(WD40).May even try having them bump the hood while hold the latch.Good luck!

How do you install the hood release cable on a 96 honda civic dx?


TOOLS:
Screw Driver, Plastic Cup to place your bolts.

STEPS:
1. Buy a new latch for $20 max. or $5 from your local junkyard
2. Open your hood. Take out your grille. Front bumper. Driver side fender and plastic fender cover.
3. Take the plastic panel covering the hood release latch. (should have 1 plastic screw, just pop that with a flat-head screw driver)
4. Remove bracket (2x -10mm bolts)
5. Remove the entire broken hood release with your new one.
6. Place everything back
7. Enjoy!

How do you open the hood to a 1995 Honda Civic with a broken hood latch cable?


The only way i can think of would be to remove your bumper so you can get to the latch, and either unbolt the latch from the core support or unbolt it from the hood.

Hood release is broken...need to open hood


A hood release works with a cable that pulls the latch open. if you have a long flat head screw-driver you can try to spring the latch itself through the front grill.

Hood on my 1995 Toyota Tercel won't open


Someone just successfully helped me with a similar problem. IF the cable is Not broken, ie: still taunt when one pulls the hood release lever in the car, then the latch under the hood is simply stuck. Try this. Have someone bounce/press down on the front center of the hood where the latch is located to relieve spring tension. At the same time have someone pull the Hood Release lever inside the car. This may pop open the front hood. Then after the hood opens spray WD40 on the hood latch to rid the rust which likely is the cause of the problem. BTW...don't know what you mean about the Oil Light comes on. You don't need the engine turned on to open up the front hood, at least not on my model (2door sedan).
