SOURCE: 2003 ranger.the hood will not open. i think cable is loose /broke

You will need 2 people to get the hood open. While you pull on the hood release cable have an assistant gently pound on the center of the hood until it pops up. If this does not work, inspect the hood release lever to see if the pivot broken, if so pull directly on the cable with a pair of locking pliers. After you get the hood open make sure to spray the latch with penetrating oil (WD40)

SOURCE: hood release cable broken, how do i open the hood ?

I have a similar problem with my 1992 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme. The way I open the hood is to reach my hand between the radiator and the front of the car, and for me there is a bar running right up the middle if I follew that too the top, and on the drivers side of that bar should be the hood release, and I feel around till I feel the hood release cable, and then I push on the lever that the cable is attached too, most of the time this works. Hope this helps.

This happened to me. I just attached a piece of strong string to the cable and looped it through the front grill. Now to open my hood I either pull it from their or I get underneath it & pull. No problems.

Hood release is broke on both ends, how do I get my hood opened on a 91 honda crx?


Lee
Another older post and I hope you've gotten your hood open by now for maintenance. But you should be able to jack the car up and remove an access panel or two and look up and see the hood latch mechanism. You should be able to grab onto the mechanism with a coat hanger or something similar.to open.

My hood cable is broke from the inside how can i open my hood?


well if it is broke on inside, you can peel back a little on cable, then pull on the cable with vise grips to open hood. if that does not work for you. you can use a coat hanger and go through grill to grab latch and open hood.

Hood latch cable broke, how do I open the hood?


first, try smacking the hood at one of the front corners while someone else pulls the release handle. or even after you've pulled on it. if that works, once open, adjust and lubricate the hood latch assembly. if it still won't open, and it's the cable and not the latch you'll have to replace it anyway, so instead of removing the grill, cut the cable behind the pull lever under the dash where you can reach it. then skin the outer cable insulation away from the actual steel cable exposing an inch or two of it. then holding the insulation and plastic housing with pliers, grab the steel cable itself with pliers and pull it to open the hood. then replace the cable. the further you can reach up under the panel the better your chances of getting past the broken part of the cable and avoid removing the grill. you might also be able to gain access from up under the car if you're lucky.

Inside hood release on 1991 Suburban won't release. How do I open hood to repair?Inside hood release on 1991 Suburban won't release. How do I open hood to repair?


Hi Gillespi,

The hood release cable on my cherokee slipped out of its mount on the latch a while ago. Here's how I got the hood open to fix it.

You're going to need a set of long needlenose pliers and a flashlight.

Get in front of the car and shine the light through the grill. You're looking for the release cable where it attaches to the hood latch.

There will be an anchor point for the outer sleeve where the cable itself is exposed. Grab the cable with the needlenose and pull out and to the right. You'll be surprised at how easily it clicks open.

Best regards,
Mike

The cable broke which opens the hood in my 1994 Lexus LS400. What is the best way (least expensive) to replace this cable? Thanks


if it broke with hood open its not going to be hard to replace it.first you go to auto parts place or dealership buy the cable feed it through the floor board to the hood where cable goes. if hood cable broke with hood down its going to be hard to see or get to the hood open mechanism.through the radiator open under neath the front bumper.
