SOURCE: Hood release under the dash has no tension on it. Hood will not latch closed

The latch is stuck in the open position. I always found white lithium grease worked best on those latches but any good lubricant will work. Try moving the latch manually with a screwdriver. After applying the lubricant move the latch a few times. You should see the tension return to the release, if it doesn't you have a broken release cable.

Hi
Tricky one this.
If you cant reach up from underneath and, using a screwdriver, flick the catch you will probably have to try and remove the grille.
You will probably snap part of the grille so be carefull not to cause too much damage.
With the grill away you will have access to the bonnet catch.
I assume the cable clamp has come loose for some reason which has caused the outer cover to move with the cable.
Fit a ne clamp screw and clip.

1998 dodge neon hood latch broken,can't open the hood. any suggestions on fixing it


use a coat hanger and go through grill and hook the hood latch. you can also lay under front of car with a few extensions and a rachet, and take out the bolts that hold hood latch. if both fail. remove grill if possible to get to hood latch. good luck !!

HOOD LATCH FOR 95 BLAZER BROKEN AND CAN NOT GET HOOD OPEN TO REPAIR


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.

How do you open the hood to a 1986 Honda Civic with a broken hood latch cable?


Slide under car in front center and slightly on the driver's side.
Reach really high and find the broken cable and tug to the right (towards the driver side tire). You may want to use a flashlight and locking pliers.

Hood release cable broke under hood


this is always a pain but here is the way I try 1st, drop the release handle down and cut back the sheath (cable cover) over the inner wire cable, expose the cable and then get a good pair of vise grip type locking pliers and have some one push down on the hood over the latch area (this removes some of the tension on the latch release) while you pull the stub end of the cable, if this doesn't work then you can try going under the truck to latch, but on this model that would be very difficult.

Hood latch


There is no other way to release the hood other than either trying to reach the latch release from under the car or removing the grille.
