One way would be to take off the bumber and pry it open. these cars should have back up plans but they dont. lol once you get it open try going to a junk yard and taking one out of another car. if not then buy one and get it put in professionally because its very difficult to do.

How to open hood cable broke


With quite some (intentional) difficulty and a long screwdriver, you can access the latch mechanism from underneath and behind the front bumper. Underskirt covers and other stuff will have to be removed.

How do I open the hood on a 2000 Grand am gt if the cable is broken?


This is a tough one, first you need to try and locate where the break is, if its at the latch then you will need to get a long slim screwdriver and from under the car try to locate the rease and push it, the is hard to do but can be done, if the cable broke near the latch then try to grab and pull on the cable itself, and if you can try to grab cable going to the latch and pull hard to release the latch, you will be pulling on the housing . good day.

My 2003 misubisi eclipse hood latch cable is broken how can i open the hood


This happened to my 2003 mitsubishi Galant... We wound up having to use some cable cutters and cut the cable, then pull the cable out through one of the grill slots, pull off the cover/sheath around the cable, and then we were able to pull the cable and release the latch. If it is already broken and you're going to have to replace it, then you're not hurting anything to cut the cable. Good luck to you.

Broken hood release cable. Can't open hood


this is a hard one it depends on where it broke,can you cut the housing to get to cable core and pull with pleirs, if it snapped at latch then you will need to remove the grill or go from the bottom and try to hit the release the same wat the cable did,sometime if you grab the cable near the latch and pull hard it will open, good luck.

2000 Chevy Blazer with Broken Hood Release. How do I open the hood


can you reach the cable itself?,or is it broke at the hood latch?IF its not broken at the outside latch, try to follow the cable,un-hook it from the handle and pull on the wire cable to open it.IF its broken at the latch itself,you are going to have to reach the latch through the grille and try to pull the lever the cable connects to.That part is no fun at all..!!

Hood is stuck, can't get it to pop


Pull the Release again and go to the Hood and then Lightly knock on the hood with your Fist around the Area where the Latch is Located. Do Not Push down on it Just Knock on it with an Upward Motion.
