This happened to me. The cable would come out of the hook that guides it so we had to bend an antenna and fiddle with it under the hood until we finally popped it. I lashed cat ties around the cable so it wouldn't come out of the hook.

TO UNLOCK THE OTHER SIDE YOU NEED TO REMOVE THE WHEEL AND SPLASH GUARD ON THE BAD SIDE AND YOU CAN REACH IN THROUGH THE OPENING TO PULL ON THE CABLE TO RELEASE THE LOCK. PARTS CAN BE FOUND AT ADVANCE AUTO PARTS. HOPE THIS HELPS. KEEP ME POSTED PLEASE. THANKS FOR AN HONEST RATING AND FOR USING FIX-YA. GOOD LUCK.

2001 audi tt complete electrical failure. Heard a pop then car died. Drivers side fuse box all ok, battery fuses ok. Is there another fuse location?


From what I can find out you have two boxes. One inside the vehicle however I don't think any of these are the culprit because power would be somewhere. Another under the hood. The only one that would cause a complete failure in this box is the main fuse. I believe you blown what is called a fusible link. It is either part of the positive battery cable or between cable and fuse box under the hood

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

Right I've got an audi 2003 sline the battery died as wasn't using it I popped the hood and jump started it now the hood will not close. It closes to first lock but will not go down all the way.


Sounds like the hood release catch is stuck! Either the cable or the catch itself is stuck open, check the catch and spray some lubricant like WD40 on the catch and visible cable to loosen it!

How to open hood if the cable for hood latch broken


try taking the wheel liner out on the side of the stuck latch and access the latch directly you can open it by hand if u follow the cable to lever. if you cannot access from wheel ull have to go from under the bumper as a last resort ull have to unbolt the latch while connected which can be tricky

Unable to open the hood. is there an alternative way to pop the hood?


Where did it break? If you can grab the cable end that is still attached to hood latch, use a good pair of pliers and pull on it.

If it broke under the hood, not so good ! Only way to get hood open then, is to reach up from underneath with a flat blade screwdriver and find the lever that cable is attached to at the latch. Push the lever towards driver's side to pop the hood.. If you can't get to it from underneath, see about removing the grill, or get your hand in from there to reach the latch.

Hood release inside my 2000 ford focus popped to release but I can not open the hood of the car? what should I do?


Might just be stuck. Have someone pull the release as you FIRMLY pound on the front of the hood in the middle with your fist (NOT A HAMMER ! ! ! !).

If that works and it opens, get some WD40 and spray the latch and cable, lever, etc... and then work the release lever before closing it again. If the cable has broken....... it is very difficult to release without some automotive knowledge. I'm betting it is just stuck...


Good Luck.

Hi, just tried to open the bonnet of my audi a6 '96 plate and only one of the two locks seem to open as only one side pops up meaning the lever does not come out of the grill to allow the bonnet to pop up....


You will be able to open the hood if you pull off your splash guard and use a long long flat head screwdriver or something like that. You'll see the hood latch in front of the radiator with the cable attached to it at the top near the hood, put it on the drivers side edge of the bottom of the latch and pry to the passenger side, the lever moves from the drivers side to the passengers side, the cable basically pulls the top of it to achieve this. so your doing the same thing on the bottom with the screwdriver.

Release the latch from underneath by the lever that you have to pry towards the passenger side. Then open the hood, and repair or replace the safety release mechanism. This is very simple to remove out from the hood.

97 850 with stuck hood


The whole mechanism is run by two cables. The first from the hood release latch to the left side hood catch. The second from the left hood catch to the right one.
First look and see if the second cable is disconnected from the left hood catch. if it is just pull it and the right should open. If not...
Have somebody with skinny arms to reach up from under the car and manually pull the lever on the right hood catch.
Hope this helps...

this is a big job for someone who is not mechanically inclined but....here it goes go buy a new clutch new tranny fluid and a haynes manual at the auto parts store your going to have to drain and drop your tranny ... BUY THE CLUTCH WITH THE TOOL theres an alignment tool needed to align the plates n bearings start by pulling off both tires, brakes and both cv axels be sure to remove the intermediate shaft from the tranny on the passenger side (should come out with the axel passenger side only) so do yourself a favor and buy an impact gun with at least 500 ft lbs torque youll need it also have handy your 14mm 17mm and 19mm impact sockets and remember this job usually runs around 1,200 bucks at firestone also DO NOT remove the bolt in the middle of the front springs under the hood just the four around it and the will pop out no prob and wont need to be clamped remove the starter behind your engine its under the oil filter also if your new to this sorta thing its gonna take you about 3 days to do it buy the impact gun if ur in a hurry look at a pawn shop have your flywheel machined its going to be accessible and it needs it hope this helps dont forget the book which you should already have bought anyway its good for your torque specs which you will also need a torque wrench for the clutch also dont crack open ur tranny this isnt a honda
