Push down on hood at same time. Sometimes a quick slap with hand will do it. Apply lube to latch assy., when you do get it open.

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.

Hello, I'm trying to open the hood of my 1991 nissan maxima. I have pulled on the lever to open, however the lever will not move. I do not want to pull it too hard without damaging it. Please help!!!


It is 20, and 10 years past its designed life, this stuff happens. You need to figure out whether the latch cable has broken or the latch itself is bad. If the cable is bad, you should be able to reach up under the dash, find the cable coming from the back of the lever and pull it out from the inside. If it comes freely, then you know it is broken but do NOT pull it all the way out. If however the cable is good but the latch is broken you are going to have to get at the latch via under the bumper or through the grille, and unbolt it or the male prong on the hood. Some extensions and swivels will come in handy for your socket set. When you get the latch or prong loose the hood will open

There is also a remote possibility that the spring which pops the hood up when you pull the lever has broken and the hood is actually unlatched so long as the lever is pulled. Check this by having someone pull and hold the lever from inside while you try to open the hood and release the secondary.

Hood release cable is broken/disconnected.


get a pair of pliers and pull the grill release out. if that doesnt work you can pull the lower middle grill out and reach your hand up thru and release the lever with your hand. you might need to take your plate and plate mount off but after you get those off just give it a good hard tug and it will pop right out. (its clipped on with no screws or bolts) this was happening to mine now the main release won't open so get it fixed asap. you dont want this to happen to yours, trust me!

2001 s10 hood wont open with latch, tried bouncing hood while latch pulled but will not work. What now, read remove grill but looked at instructions, said open hood take out four screws under hood.


look at the cable sounds like when you pull the release lever the cable is sticking and not moving enought to pull the latch over usually you can reach up from under and give it an extra pull ,have someone else pull the lever in the truck while you look up under the bumper you should be able to see if the latch is moving

Unable to open hood of Volvo


I have a '95 and the lever is beside the drivers left leg. You pull this lever and then go out and lift up the hood about an inch. A second lever shows out the front grill. You pull this second lever to release the safety catch so you can open it the rest of the way.

The hood will not release to open. I released the inside lever & the hood poped up a little. In the grill there is a plastic "T" lever that you pull to release the hood. I have pulled it hard & the...


So I gather that the release inside the car has release the hood's primary catch, but the T handle is not release the secondary catch to allow the hood to fully open.

If this is the case, take some lithium grease or WD-40 (lithium grease is much better and lasts much longer) and spray it onto the catch assembly.

Try pulling on the T handle some more after a few minutes of the grease soaking in and see of that releases.

If that doesn't work, then take a long flat screw driver and press it against the catch gently hit the screw driver with a hammer (you should be trying to push the catch towards the driver's side of the car)
You may need someone to be pulling on the T handle as you hit the catch with a hammer. I actually had to do this with a jetta before....

1996 Chevy S10 Hood Latch will not open


The best solution I've come across is a coat hanger used to pull on the cable from under the hood to get the latch to release. You can either place it through the grill or if there's room, just under the hood. Best of luck.

Hood release will not release hood cable is not broken


the outer cable may have come loose near the lock, if the grille screws are accessable remove the grille and you will have access to the underside of the lock, you may need a screwdriver to push the lock lever aside to unlock the bonnet
