If you have gas struts to hold the bonnet open then replace them as the gas pressure is low.. try using a long lever to come up in front of the radiator and pushing the latch sideways as some one presses down on the bonnet

SOURCE: Broken hood latch on a 03 Volks Wagon Passat

use a long flat tip screw driver and a small hammer. have someone pull up on the hood after you pop it from the inside, then while they are holding the hood up use the screw driver and shove the hook that is above the latch bar. when you hit it you will be hitting it to the right

When you say: Grill hood release is broken
which component are you talking about ?

1999 VW Passat AC/heat doesn't work? The belt broke this summer? I was told should still blow heat even if no belt?


If you are talking about the belt for the ac compressor, yes the heater should still work.
If the blower is not working, you will need to have the blower motor checked for voltage and ground.

Hood wont latch closed on '02 vw passat


Hood latch is probably gummed up so the release cable does not return. Try some carb cleaner to clean it, then some spray lithium grease to lubricate it.

Hood wont release from interior release. cable is attached to release handle. its on a 1999 passat


try pressing down on edge of the hood as someone pulls the release handle. Or shake hood up and down while pulling the release cable. The cable may have broken at the latch end.

Trunk pop open when driving


close hood and lift up on hood to see if it stays closed.
if not, check inside car to see if latch(that you pull) is in the correct position. you can tell when hood is closed that there will be some tension on latch.
check under hood, where hood closes on latch of hood, is tight and secure(no loose bolts)
also check cable if broken.
only those things can cause hood to pop open.
if all visual inspections check out and still continues to open while driving then the latch (the mechanism that hold the hood down) is bad. vibrating while driving will cause it to open.

How do u get the hood to open on a 99 vw passat if the pully is broke off


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 part.

pull the latch to open it then give the hood a few taps on and around the edges of the hood that way you dont dent it. If that doesnt work hit it harder if that doesnt work it could be your cable has broke

Can't open hood


if you can still get to the little steel cable, a extremely tight pair of vise grips and a moderate amount of force will do the trick.
