SOURCE: My hood won't pop open

Push down on the hood where the latch is, the design is bad, very.  If you push on it a few times that will excersice the bad design, and make the hood easier to open.

SOURCE: Hood Won't Open, and Lever Broke

Hi viper852004 , the only way you can do this is to remove the front grills and then you will be able to see the 2 sprung bonnet pegs, you will need to loosen the adjusting nut where it screws into the hood and unscrew it until it becomes unattatched from the hood, do this for both pegs and then you should be able to release the hood to fix the problem. the pegs will need to be reinstalled before driving the car as the hood will not close, hope this is of some help, regards mark.

dear friend-push the hood down then pull the lever,if that does not work you have to find away to hook it threw the grill,when open look by the left head light it most likely unhooked there it is a double jointed cable.

SOURCE: 1998 subaru legacy hood latch is broken :(

tre spring is on the latch itself,my guess is that the latch needs a little lube,work the area of the latch that the cable slides into with a screwdriver,it should spring back after you lube it

Can't close hood on 2007 Subaru forester


Try pulling the latch lever again. Sometimes, when the hood alignment isn't quite right, the latch will lock before the hood end gets in the right place. Otherwise your hood latch is misaligned or your cable is rusted and has the latch stuck open.

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.

How do i open the hood.


there should be a lever that is on the bottom edge of dash that is under the steering wheel along the trim. if the handle is broken you can use pliers to grab the cable and pull it to get the hood to realse. if you found all that and i seems to work ok then when pulling the release lever have a friend hit or shake the hood to get it to pop up a little so that you can open it all the way.
