SOURCE: My hood latch is broken

If the cable link to the latch is rusty or broken you have to take the front grid down. It's relatively easy. It's held there by plastic fasteners. Then reach for the latch with you hand, or the leftover broken cable. Pull it, it should release the first latch, than you just have to get to the security latch, like you usually do to open the hood.

How to get under hood of 94 deville battery dead


If the in-car hood release is not working, the hood latch may be jammed. You can try having someone pull on the release while you are bouncing the hood to try and release it.
Depending on the grille you have, another way is to reach through the grill with a large screwdriver and pry the release arm to the right (where the cable attaches to the release mechanism). Failing all of that, the only other way I know of is to manually release the catch from beneath the vehicle, which will involve removing the lower air shield, reaching up from below and repeating the above procedure.

Hood cable broke or came loose on 1992 coupe deville cant get hood up


You'll have to try going thru the grille or from under the bumper to access the hood latch.
You might want to look at another GM product to gauge were the latch is in your car.
Sometimes you can use a coat hanger as a hook to pull the latch from outside the grille or between the grille and hood. Or use a long screwdriver from under the bumper.

Hood release cable disconnected.Is there any way to release hood from outside of car?2004 Suzuki Forenza


The cable terminates at the latch release located at the front center of the hood. If you can get to this, usually by removing the grill, find the lever the cable terminates in and move it manually with whatever tool you can get in there.

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.

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 latch won't release hood. 91 volvo 240.


Have had same problem on 1990 240 DL. Go underneath, tap ball at end of hood latch sideways with small hammer (take a good look at it --- you should be able to see which way it needs to go to clear). Once released clean and lubricate.

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.

92 cadillac deville


I sort of had this problem with my 92 deville...u could try to pull bak a lil more on the release and push forward after that while someone else is outside the car...the person outside the car should try giving the hood a lil push n if it pops up a bit...the latch under the hood is located to the left side next to the grill.
