SOURCE: can't open hood

if you can still get to the little steel cable, a extremely tight pair of vise grips and a moderate amount of force will do the trick.

you can often release the hood latch from under the car, or through the grille, by reaching up to the hood latch mechanism with a long screwdriver or pliers, or a piece of coat hanger, whichever works in your particular case. G/L

SOURCE: 2001 Jetta tdi hood release broken how do i get it open

on the left side of the drivers side their is a panel with the hood release Pull off the cover of the hood release and you will see a cable connected to the hood release. take some pliers and give it a good pull.
if you dont hear a click, have someone pull the hood up while you pull on the hood release cable. next their will be little space to take off the grille for easier acces. take off the grille carefully by prying it off carefully on each side. push the grill up and pull it towards you going up then down.
Now all you have to do is stick a flathead screwdriver or philips. and on the bottom of the hood release on the hood stick the screwdriver under the release and push the screw driver down while pushing the hood up.

2010 Chevrolet 2500 Extended Van can't get hood open. Inside latch flips open, but still can't raise hood.


Have someone press down on the hood with their palms while you try and release it, if it does open lube the hood latch with white lithium grease AKA "Lubriplate".

How to open a hood


Small handle on drivers side near the doorway jamb (inside vehicle), usually has a picture of a car with the hood opening,. Pull that, then feel around in the slot created at the front hood by releasing the initial latch for the secondary safety handle. Move it to the side or up/down (model differ) to fully release hood. Raise hood, insert prop rod into hood if so equipped.

Bentley gt bonnet release


Pop opens the hood
Pull or push the hood release until you heard the hood pop opening whether the hood release is inside your vehicle. However, you need to look anywhere for 2013 Bentley Continental GT W12 and through the grill, carefully feel under the grill and finally behind the bumper to find a lever, arm, button or handle if the hood release is apparently at the front. And then press, pull or push it from the front to back, side to side until finally it can release the hood.
Even though the hood will just open a tiny, it will possibly be stopped by a safety catch which is a metal lever. You should release the hood when you pressed one way or other in order to open all the way. When you are driving, this gizmo accidentally avoids opening the hood.
Raise the hood fast with one hand
Feel along the station between the grill and the hood for the safety catch with the other hand. The rest of the way is to release and raise the hood.
If it is necessary, secure the hood
It is fine if the hood can stay up easily all by itself for 2013 Bentley Continental GT W12. Only if it does not like that, you should have to find a hoop prop which is a thin and long metal rod attached to the bottom edge of the opening hood or to the underside of the hood. In other words, either lift or lower the rod and fit the finishing of it into the slot which is provided to hold it.

How do I open the hood?


On your driver side, lower left side, down to where you would place your left feet, there is a handle that has a hood logo on it, pull this handle back, and your hood should be released, then go to your hood, toward the center of the hood, slide your hands under the hood and lift it up a little bit, (it won't open yet) then there is a release lever that needs to be pull, (be easier if you take a look) with your fingers, and once you pull on it, should release your hood, and then open the hood.

Can't open hood on mt 91 Ranger, pulling the handle inside the truck doesn't release hood


Ford has the worst adjustable hood adjusters. they tend to break on all models vehicles made making the hood difficult to open.Have someone pull and hold the release handle out while you push on one corner of the front of the hood to see if it will open. Try the other side if the one side will not open at first

Engine hood wont open hood pull handle pulls out but wont release


Try pulling on the hood release, while someone else lifts the hood. If this doesn't work. You can access the underside of the hood release by taking the front grille out. If you look closely you'll see the retainer screws that can be removed from the front. Once the grille is out or loosened enougt to get your hand in behind, you can release the hood latch from the underside with a screwdriver and then repair the hood latch after you've opened it.

Does any one know how to open the hood on a 1987 300e if the latch doesn't release


There is a release cable that is attatched to the red releas handle on the drivers under dash panel. You can grab that cable with needle nose pliers to release the hood to the first detent if the handle or cable is broken. There is a secondary release mechanism(called a hood tongue) which routes through the grille where the rectangular slot is once the hood is popped up with the release handle.you can grab the rest of the broken hood tongue with needle nose pliers and pull it out to completly release the hood from the saftey catch. If it is completely broken you can take a long screw driver and push the saftey catch( i beleive to the right) and the hood should be able to open all the way up. Both the hood tongue and the cable(securing portion at release handle) are common failures and break over the years.if it is at the release handle you are having a problem-get a #2 phillips screw driver and remove the release handle to gain access to the loose cable. I hope I have been helpful
