The outer cable may have come loose near the lock, if the grille screws are accessable remove the grille and you will have access to the underside of the lock, you may need a screwdriver to push the lock lever aside to unlock the bonnet

How do i open stuck hood possible broken cable


sometimes it just takes a thump on the hood after pulling release handle .

How can I open the hood of a '97 Jeep Cherokee when the rod that pops open the latch is disconnected under the hood?


some times pulling the cable sheath from the side as person 2 pulls lever gets it open (not snapped cable, but stretched)
well , that can be hard. (snapped)
its just a cable. so the tech looks at that.
he sees if the center wire in said cable is broken. is it?
i remove it from lever and pull just it (center) open now?
no, we find it pulls out, and is say 2 foot long. 1/2 normal.
he may see , yes, it is then asks self where exactly
he finds it broken say in the middle. so gains access to that point
and cuts the cable there there , and skins back the sheath,
then pulls the good side center wire, and opens the latch.
now he replaces the cable.
and calibrates it per those words in the FSM.

it has 3 fail modes.
  1. lever broken
  2. cable broken or streatched
  3. or latch broken or needs calibration (adjusted to spec).

the only magic here is the yanking cable at mid span.
while BOB pulls lever. (bob is common mechanics name,a joke?)
LOL

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.

I have a 1996 Audi A4 Quattro, and the release lever in the cab will not unlock the hood. ive tried pulling te secondary release lever in the grille of the car and nothing happens. any idea of how I might...


Under the car:
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 replace the safety release mechanism broken cable.

Please do rate my response. Thanks!

The hood release lever will not open the hood on my 1996 f250, it does not appear that the cable is broken any ideas how to manually open it


While pulling on the hood lever have someone else push down and pull up on hood. If that does not work you will have to try to open it manually by trying reach up and pulling the lever right on the latch. My guess is the latch is gummed up with dirt or the cable is stretched. Good Luck. Let me know if you can not get it open.

Hood latch won't release. Can't get hood open


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.

I have a 2001 Mitsubishi Eclipse. The hood won't open when you pull the lever. Is there another way to get the hood open.


You will need helper for this. Have your helper pull on release lever when you tell them. You will probably have to park car on blocks or car ramps or if you don't have these you will have to jack up front of car. Looking up from under car you should see cable moving when assistant pulls lever inside car. There will be a spring over cable you are looking at. If cable is broken or just not moving all the way you will have to move it with needle nose vice grips towards drivers side to release catch. Before you do this though, try pressing down on hood when assistant pulls lever, this may relaese hood. Once you have hood opened ensure proper operation of release lever and adjust hood pin if necessary.
