Question about 1992 Honda Prelude
Bonnet cable not working can't open Bonnet
The leaver may have broken, or the cable is simply too stretched and loose to open the hood. Another reason is hood might be putting a lot of pressure on the lever, therefore making in near impossible to open bonnet (hood), so you may need someone to push or pull up on it as you pull the lever.
See if you can get at the cable itself, directly behind the lever. If so, cut some of the plastic cover away until you see the bare cable, give the cable a tug with pliers.
I once had to remove the grill to get access to the cable there, I cut into the plastic cover, slid it back and grabbed the bare cable with needle nose pliers and gave that a tug.
See if you can get at the cable, if the lever isn't working remove it (usually two bolts or so) and try pulling on the cable there.
Hope this helps :-)
