Posted by on

  • Anonymous May 10, 2009

    The cable broke off the handle inside the car. We tried to pull it with a plyers, but nothing happens. There is a click like it is popping the hood open, but it doesn't. We attempted to reach the latch through the grill, but it still won't pop opend

    Thanks for your suggestion.

Hi: Have someone push down on the hood while you pull the release cable, while cable pulled have them lift up on the hood and it should release. Hood is probably released but stuck, latch out of adjustment or hood support rubbers ( located on rad support) are set to high causing latch to be to tight.

Can you reach the cable itself?,or is it broke at the hood latch?IF its not broken at the outside latch, try to follow the cable,un-hook it from the handle and pull on the wire cable to open it.IF its broken at the latch itself,you are going to have to reach the latch through the grille and try to pull the lever the cable connects to.That part is no fun at all..!!

SOURCE: broken hood release cable. Can't open hood

this is a hard one it depends on where it broke,can you cut the housing to get to cable core and pull with pleirs, if it snapped at latch then you will need to remove the grill or go from the bottom and try to hit the release the same wat the cable did,sometime if you grab the cable near the latch and pull hard it will open, good luck.

Take a pair of pliers, and pull the cable where handle hooked to it. Helps to have some one push down on hood while you pull cable.

Hood release cable not attached to release mechanism under the hood. Can the hood be popped (opened) from front?? . Battery went dead and when I tried to open the hood the cable was loose (detached)


This same thing happened to my Blazer. If you reach your hand up behind the front bumper and use a hammer you can hit the release latch and it will open.

Hood release won't release hood on my 92 chevy c-10. any suggestions as to how I can open it.


You'll have to see first if the cable has broken at the release lever, if so, use vice grips or something similar to pull on the cable that is sticking out & it should open it. Normally this works it it has broken as that is the wear point. If it isn't broken there or you can't see where it is broken, or even worse, it it is just loose, then you'll basically have to get access to that cable somehow & pull on it. There is the off chance that you can see the mechanism from the front through the grille & can fish the wire out to pull, or use a coathanger to pop the latch. If all else fails, you'll need to get the replacement part, then carefully cut through the cable you are replacing so as to preserve the inner cable enough to pull & open. The whole idea of the remote hood opening was to prevent anyone from easy access. good luck

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.

Broken hood


look under the car or behind the grill there should be a black cable running to the under side of hood.if you ''skin'' the black plastic back you will find a metal wire.now take two pairs of pliers.one to hold the black casing and one to pull the wire.that should open hood.once hood is open you'll see where cable attaches to hood latch.that cable needs replacing.

1998 S-10 blazer broken hood cable


i believe you can remove the grille without opening the hood and that will give you access to the hood release so you can open it manually and then fix the broken cable
Hope this helps!
