It shouldn't be expensive as a new cable costs a couple of dollars at most, however you'll need to get the hood open before you can replace the cable. This will mean getting the car jacked up pretty high so you can get to the broken cable from beneath the car and cut off a piece of shroud, so you can release the hood lock by tugging on the cable itself. When that's done, tape the end of the new cable to the broken one that's been left on the inside of the car, and pull the new one through the opening on the firewall, connect it the same way as the old one, and to the hood latch aswell, and that should fixya! Hope that helps!

Unable to open the hood. is there an alternative way to pop the hood?


Where did it break? If you can grab the cable end that is still attached to hood latch, use a good pair of pliers and pull on it.

If it broke under the hood, not so good ! Only way to get hood open then, is to reach up from underneath with a flat blade screwdriver and find the lever that cable is attached to at the latch. Push the lever towards driver's side to pop the hood.. If you can't get to it from underneath, see about removing the grill, or get your hand in from there to reach the latch.

HELP!! 1992 buick lesabre Hood release cable snapped. no way to get hood open..


You may need a professional to get this hood open, and it will likely need to be on a car lift. Try this if you are handy, try removing the driver side fender well liner for access to the latch.

My 1998 Intrepid has a broken hood latch. When I pull on the inside latch, nothing happens. How can I open my hood, and fix this problem for the future ?


can you grab a piece of the cable from under dash?if so pull it and see if it will open.
if not you will have to try to get at latch from under car.
if you cant get at it find a reasonably priced body shop they are pros at getting stuff like that open
then get a new cable or pull handle or latch whichever it needs and replace it

My 1996 chevy caprice cable to the hood snapped and I was using a pliars to pull the cable. Now the cable will not pop the hood. How do I get my hood up?


Boy, that's going to be tough. You might try spraying some WD-40 between the grill and hood, in towards the middle of the hood where the latch is. Have an assistant push down and pull up the hood, while you pull the hood cable. Most likely the latch is sticking, due to dirt and grease build up. You maybe able to get to it from underneath, but not too likely.

1996 dodge intrepid hood latch won't release


Very common problem with the dodges, look under your dash and you will see where the probably now broken cable use to connect. You can pull it by hand to release the hood, They are not hard to replace, just unbolt the handle unit and bolt in the new one. The cable usually just snaps into a holder on the bracket under the dash. Some if these vehicles came with the hood cable that goes all the way to the hood release latch under the hood if that is the case you can still open the hood you just have to do it from under the car in the front. Hope this helped

My hood release cable on my 95 intrepid broke just wondering were is the release locaded so i can open my hood and hows an easy way to fix that.


Usually the handle breaks off the cable, you should be able to use some vise grips to grab a hold of the cable and pull it to open the hood. To repair it the cable assembly will have to be replaced. If not you will have to gain access to the latch which is located in the front center of the hood and using a screw driver or something similar push the lever to release the latch.

If you can pull the grill insert (look for retaining screws) you can reach the underside of the cable hood release and open it with a screwdriver.

Hood release handle will not work is there a way to pop the hood on my daughters 2002 chevy cavalier manually?


Hi,

Thanks for using fixya.

Sorry but for security reasons (to avoid parts or car theft) there is no way for you to pop the hood manually. You need a mechanic to have this fixed. This problem is caused by wear and tear in the hood release mechanism or a snapped hood release cable line. I hope this helps.

Thanks and have a nice day.

How do i open hood on my 96 dodge 2500 when hood release is broken


Where did the cable break? Is it still visible? You can look where the hood release was and if the cable is still there you can use pliers to pull it so it will pop your hood. try that

or
lay on your back look up under the grill area of the truck, there is a mechanisim with a claw on it grab ahold of the cable going into the mech. once its open i suggest buying a new 1 or tie rope to a shorter piece of cable
