If it is just the safety latch you should be able to use a coat hanger to release it. It may take two of you to get both sides at once.

I have a 96 Volvo 850. The hood pops open from the release latch in the cab. The safety latch in front of the car that comes out from the grill will not release the hood from opening Suggestions?


I have the same problem on mine. Once the hood is released inside the cabin, do the following:
Push the release in on the hood, then pull up a bit on the hood and then the release should pull out completely unlocking the hood. Hope this helps.

Safety catch on hood wont release and hood wont re latch!


I would check to see if the hood release moves when the inside lever is pulled then pushed, if not the cable and latch mechanism may need lubrication or be broken.

My hood latch cable broke,how can I get under my hood


Gentlemen-
Remove the turn signal from the Drivers Side and push a long screwdriver into the spot until you trigger the latch, this is a tedious chore at best but sooner or later you will trip the latch and the hood will open, then pull the cross over cable and unlatch the hood. Please replace the opening cables, both of them and build an EMERGENCY HOOD CABLE and run it down until you can reach it from the outside, under the car. GOOD LUCK!!!!

The cable on the hood release is broken and slipped inside of the outer cable housing so I can't even clamp onto it. I looked under the front grill/radiator and see the safety catch but how do I first...


Using a hack saw, cut through outer casing in cable a couple inches down from broken end on the cable that is broken. Be careful to only cut through outer casing & not cable inside. Then use vise grips to pull cable to open hood.

How do I open the hood of a Mitsubishi L300 ?


  1. Locate the interior hood-release lever under the dashboard on the driver's side of the interior of the car.

  2. 2

    Lift up and toward you on the hood release lever. The lever is connected to a cable that releases the hood. The hood will pop up about 1/2 inch when you pull the lever.

  3. 3

    Move to the front of the car and locate the exterior hood-release lever under the front of the hood. It is located near the middle of the vehicle, just beyond where the front edge of the hood meets the body. Lift up on the inner lever.

  4. 4

    Lift up on the edge of the hood while holding the inner lever in place. When the hood is up, find the hood prop and raise it, setting its tip in the hood-prop mount on the hood, to hold the hood up while you work in the engine bay.

I pull the red lever inside the car to open bonnet, but PLEASE where is the release catch behind the grill on a Mercedes E300.


The release catch should be just to left from the center in the second row down. It should spring out as you pull up on the hood. If not then it may be broken but you can use a hook tool to pull back the safety catch to open the hood.

Unable to open hood of Volvo


I have a '95 and the lever is beside the drivers left leg. You pull this lever and then go out and lift up the hood about an inch. A second lever shows out the front grill. You pull this second lever to release the safety catch so you can open it the rest of the way.

Hood latch won't release hood. 91 volvo 240.


Have had same problem on 1990 240 DL. Go underneath, tap ball at end of hood latch sideways with small hammer (take a good look at it --- you should be able to see which way it needs to go to clear). Once released clean and lubricate.
