It's strapped under the fender and has a rubber grommet that goes thru and seals at firewall. Follow all the way back and disconnect as you have to to get it out.

SOURCE: No hood release cable Chevy S10 truck

I have this same problem. You have to take a screw-driver (philips) and look between the hood and the grill and you will see the hood latch assembly. There will be a large gauge wire with a loop about the size of a large philips head screw-driver. This is the release. Take the screw-driver and push the wire towards the drivers side door and it will release.

How do I open hood when cable or latch is broken


If the plastic hood release handle inside is broken, can you reach the steel cable, if so, use a pair of vice grips to grab the cable and pull. Sometimes it helps to have a helper standing at the end of the hood and pop the hood with palm of hand, in the area of under hood release mechanism, at the same time your pulling the cable.

If cable is broken, some makes and models, you can remove front grille and get at under hood release mechanism.

There is usually a primary hood release, inside vehicle, and a secondary release under the hood, you have to slide your hand under the hood to release, sometimes you have to press down on the hood a little to move release. Trying to shut the hood with secondary release engaged can be difficult, you don't have the distance and the weight of hood to swing down.

Hood release cable out from hood latch


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.

Where can i get the hood release cable fixed or can it be fixed? will it cost


Im taking a chance at answering this question . Because if you don't work on cars or other things like that you likely won't understand what im about to tell you . There is a problem with the luberation at the hood latch and likely you can't get that open at the moumant . This is basicly a disign problem . You have the release inside the vehicle that you pull on to open the hood there is a cable attached to it . The cable runs to the hood release mechinsam and it tends to streach if the release mechinsam is not moveing freely .The way to open the hood at this point is to take a pair of vice grips and clamp them on the cable from the inside of the vehicle to the cable on the release cable be carful not to damage the cable but it has to be tight enough to pull the cable and at the same time have some one else push down on the hood over the latch mechinsam and the hood should pop so you can open it . THEN lubercate the latch with white lithium greese this will help in a big way but you may have to shorten the cable travel because the cable is streched and is now to long . You can do this by useing cable tys on the jacket of the the cable at the hood latch between the cable and the jacket to take up the space from the streach of the cable. S o all you need to do is stand the jacket of the cable off from the hood latch mechinsam to jacket didn't streach the cable did and free up the striker on the hood latch its sticking and caused this whole problem

The hood will not open on my 2002 subaru legacy. can you help me?


try having someone hold the hood release open while you lift the hood. sometimes if you push down first then up it will release. If there is no way to get it open you might try to see the bolts through the grille to unbolt the hood latch through the
grille. If you cant get to it that way try to come from the bottom. Sometimes you can put a long screwdriver through the grille opening and reach the hood latch where the cable hooks and pry it the same way the cable would pull it. If you cant get it through the grille you will have to come from the bottom with a long screw driver to reach the hood latch at the radiator support and find the latch release action. you will have to remove some splash covers under the rediator support.

How do you install a hood release cable in a 1999 300m


piece of cake for me, probably hell for you but here goes, open the hood, Disconnect the cable from the latch wich is located on your hood, then dislocate the other side of the cable from inside the vehicle (under the steering column, left side it should say hood release on the handle). Once this is acomplished look at the grommet openinig where the cable actually goes through the firewall, you must now determin if the cable can slide through easily, I usually attach the new cable to the old cable with electrical tape then I spray the whole cable down with WD-40, then I slide the cable out while pulling the new one in place, remove the tape/oldcable and begin to run the cable exactly like the old one, warning: if you route the cable wrong your cable can bind, which means that your going to close your hood and it wont open up, so you need to run it exactly the same, and when your done dont slam your hood shut. Take a screwdriver and manually lock your hood latch, then pull the handle and make sure it opens easily, if the latch passes the test you should be okay

Cant open hood


I assume you know to pull the hood release latch under the dash... Now go to the front of the car and find the lock slide, push it towards the right. and pull the hood towards you while lifting... Then go to the back of the hood( close to the firewall) and raise it up. The hood opens from rear. Hope this helps!
