2005 quattro , battery is dead and hood wont release.Is it an elecrtonic release?


Heidi, No electric release. The latch is probably stuck. While you pull the interior hood release have an assistant push down and pull up repeatably/vigorously until hood releases from stuck position. Lube latch and cable before closing hood. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

How to open hood cable broke


With quite some (intentional) difficulty and a long screwdriver, you can access the latch mechanism from underneath and behind the front bumper. Underskirt covers and other stuff will have to be removed.

Our battery is dead on our 2004 Toyota Sienna, now our key wont manually open the doors


You will have to open the hood to jump start or change battery. There are two ways to open the hood, both involve the hood latch/locking mechinism. First thing you must find a way to do, is to access the hood latch with your hands. You may have to get under the car, or maybe remove the grill to be able to get to it. Try to pull the hood release cable with your fingers or with some pliers. If this proves too hard to do, try to use a strong stick or rod and try to get the latch to release that way, moving the release the same way the cable pulls it. Another option is to access the screws that hold the latch on to the car, remove the bolts and lift hood, latch and all up. Then replace the latch/lock when you get your battery fixed. If you decide to lift hood, latch and all up by removing the bolts/screws, watch out and don't break your cable, just lift the hood enough to seperate the latch from the hood.

My 2003 misubisi eclipse hood latch cable is broken how can i open the hood


This happened to my 2003 mitsubishi Galant... We wound up having to use some cable cutters and cut the cable, then pull the cable out through one of the grill slots, pull off the cover/sheath around the cable, and then we were able to pull the cable and release the latch. If it is already broken and you're going to have to replace it, then you're not hurting anything to cut the cable. Good luck to you.

My 2004 Jaguar xj8 will not release both latches with the inside release. How can I get to the latch without the hood opening?


If your bonnet will not release, there is a rubber plug inside fender located up in
the wheel well under the latch. Remove the plug, stick a screwdriver up and pry the latch
back. The hood / bonnet will open.

Hood latch


Try spraying the latch mechanism with WD-40 or similar light oil and operating the release cable a number of times. Check the condition of the release cable if nothing happens. The latch itself may have a broken spring due to the low temps.

Hood is stuck, can't get it to pop


Pull the Release again and go to the Hood and then Lightly knock on the hood with your Fist around the Area where the Latch is Located. Do Not Push down on it Just Knock on it with an Upward Motion.
