from under the car you will need to get up to where the actual catch mechanism is located, from there you should be able to manually release the hood, it may take some effort , but there will be access,although limited... if there is part of the cable accessible grab it with vice grips and pull, hood should release. if not you'll have to find the part on the catch itself that the cable connects too and pull it to release.
At the left floor the cable that releases the hood is behind the kick panel. The plastic handle that broke off can be accessed by removing the panel and you will see the last bit of the plastic handle that is threaded on the steel rod. I an emergency you can grab the rod with pliers and pull to release the hood (bonnet). Go to you local dealer and you can order a new handle or go to a wrecking yard and find your car model and just remove and purchase the used handle. You may be able to grab the rod that the handle broke off from with out removing the panel. Good luck.
This is a try, try reaching up there under the hood, behind the grille, and grab the cable from the hood release, give it a good yank, It might pop it, if not, try grabbing it with a hook and do the same thing. You can fish around in there behind the grill with a hook and see if you can grab the latch from the left side. Good luck, hope this helps.
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
WHILE HAVING SOMEONE HOLD THE RELEASE, TRY PUSHING DOWN ON THE FRONT OF THE HOOD REPEATEDLY. IT MAY HAVE SOME RUST ON THE HOOD CATCH. SOMETIMES A LIGHT TAP CAN JAR IT LOOSE. IF AND WHEN IT POPS UP, TRY LUBRICATING THE CATCH WITH SOME LITHIUM GREASE. IF THE RELEASE CABLE HAS BROKEN AT THE RELEASE HANDLE SEE IF YOU CAN GRAB THE CABLE WITH A PAIR OF VISE-GRIP PLIERS AND GENTLY PULL. I HOPE THIS HELPS. THANKS FOR USING FIX-YA. PLEASE KEEP ME POSTED.
try pushing the gear selector button in and pulling the gear selector into 1st gear position, if it doesnt catch, leave it aligned with the "1" on the panel, let go of the button, then once the gear selector (shifter) is staionary int he 1 position pull back on it slightly without pusing in the button..
Hit the gas and see if it catches.. it is likely, you have a worn catch for the two gears that aren't grabbing.. if you hit speed bump or pot hole you may have to pull back on it genly while driving to get the gear back...
sounds like a missing tooth or stripped gear on the motor or moon gear on the regulator, the door will have to be taken apart and the regulator or motor replaced. If you can grab the top of the glass with your fingers GENTLY pull up while pressing the switch. it may catch another tooth and go up. (**Do not use pliers or any other tool to grab the glass**)
