Here's a trick I used once...You need to get a wire coat hanger, straighten it out and bend a loop on one end. Lay on your back and fish the wire up to the end where the cable attaches to the hood release. It might take a couple of tries but hook that part and give it a hard pull. That should open the hood ! ! !

SOURCE: i have a 93 buick century and the hood latch cable

You have to start taking stuff apart to get to the hood latch. This might have to include removing body parts to get to the latch. You might be able t move the latch with a long long screw driver to pry it open. The latch itself . Do not try an pry the hood open you will only ruin the paint job and your screw driver.

Good luck

SOURCE: hood latch cable broke how do I open hood?

You'll have to remove part of the grill and try to access the latch from inside. Yoy may have to unbolt the entire thing, but make sure you mark it 1st so that you know how to put it back in the EXACT spot it came from. Then once out, you can extracate it from the latch pin on the hood, replace your cable and start fresh. Good luck, this is one of those things that no matter how long you've been working on cars, its always hard to do!

SOURCE: i have a 94 buick century, the hood relase is not

have someone pull the release while you push down/lift up on the hood. If you get it open , put a bit of grease on the latch mechanism , and check the allignment of the pin that is mounted on the hood.

My hood cable is broke from the inside how can i open my hood?


well if it is broke on inside, you can peel back a little on cable, then pull on the cable with vise grips to open hood. if that does not work for you. you can use a coat hanger and go through grill to grab latch and open hood.

My hood release is broke and the cable is gone...how can i open my hood?


the Best thing to do is remove the cable and try to unwind the outter cable if you get lucky with unwinding the cable then with a pair of small vise grips grab the center cable and pull, if it pops loose open the hood and buy a new cable. If this is the only car you have to drive be sure you use a chain and bolt to hold it down while you drive it to the parts store to buy new cable. You will Have to buy from the Dealer or from a wrecking yard. If you can't get the cable loose from inside the cab you will need a pair of long needle nose plyers to reach threw the grill and pull on the release cable. good luck hope this helps. You might find a mechanic that has the tools to do it for a reasonable amount.

I have broken the cable on my hood release on my 1989 Buick Lesabre. Is there any way that I can open the hood from the outside?


if it broke at the dash,cut the cable housing down to get to the cable and pull on it with pliers,
if it broke at the latch you can still open it you will need two long skinny screwdrivers and patients
