SOURCE: Broken Hood Release

Hello There

In short no there isn't, however it's most likely your plastic release lever is broken and not the metal cable, you need to open the cover over the release lever, there will be a cable you can pull using a gripper and it will release the bonnet, you can easily replace the plastic llever and it's reletively cheap.

Hope this helps, please don't forget to rate me.

SOURCE: Toyota Corolla Hood is stuck

If it has been awhile since you have been under the hood, the cable may be rustd and not moving to open the latch. The latch iself may be stuck and you can try lightly tapping either side of the hood to pop it loose.

SOURCE: 99 toyota corrolla hood latch is broken. Can't

There is a rachet right below the hood that you can reach from radiator grill.
Take a long thin screw driver, reach it and turn that rachet.
You will hear the "click" sound and the hood will pop open.

SOURCE: Hood on my 1995 Toyota Tercel won't open

Someone just successfully helped me with a similar problem. IF the cable is Not broken, ie: still taunt when one pulls the hood release lever in the car, then the latch under the hood is simply stuck. Try this. Have someone bounce/press down on the front center of the hood where the latch is located to relieve spring tension. At the same time have someone pull the Hood Release lever inside the car. This may pop open the front hood. Then after the hood opens spray WD40 on the hood latch to rid the rust which likely is the cause of the problem. BTW...don't know what you mean about the Oil Light comes on. You don't need the engine turned on to open up the front hood, at least not on my model (2door sedan).

Our battery is dead on our 2004 Toyota Sienna, now our key wont manually open the doors


You will have to open the hood to jump start or change battery. There are two ways to open the hood, both involve the hood latch/locking mechinism. First thing you must find a way to do, is to access the hood latch with your hands. You may have to get under the car, or maybe remove the grill to be able to get to it. Try to pull the hood release cable with your fingers or with some pliers. If this proves too hard to do, try to use a strong stick or rod and try to get the latch to release that way, moving the release the same way the cable pulls it. Another option is to access the screws that hold the latch on to the car, remove the bolts and lift hood, latch and all up. Then replace the latch/lock when you get your battery fixed. If you decide to lift hood, latch and all up by removing the bolts/screws, watch out and don't break your cable, just lift the hood enough to seperate the latch from the hood.

Hood latch is pulled open but hood is stuck closed how do I get the latch to release.


Have one person pull on the latch inside and the other person pull up on the hood (sometimes depending may have to use a thin screwdriver to pry up carefully not to chip the paint). Once open lube the hood latch under the hood with wd-40. Make sure the latch inside is still connected to the wire.

I cant open the hood of the 2003 toyota corolla..what shall I do . Can someone help me?


Try this. have some one pull the release while you bang on the front edge of the hood, be careful as the metal on the hood is thin and will dent easly. Try to use the heel of your hand right on the edge of the hood in the middle front edge against the bumper. The hood should pop up. When it is open sprayWD40 all over the lock and latch. Let me know if this works.

Hood won't latch completely. Cable has no tension. I have a 2001 Toyota 4 Runner. I'm afraid that it may fly open completely when I'm driving freeway speeds. Can anyone help?


The hood latch is one mechanism controlled by a spring. The cable is another mechanism to pull the latch. Open the hood to inspect the latch. If the spring of the latch itself is good then you don't have to worry about this after you close it. However you have to worry how to open it since the cable is not working. The cable has no tension due to a broken end. Need to replace the cable. The latch has 2 positions halfway and full way when closed. To have a peace of mind, have it halfway latched then tie a string from the hood latch to the grill for temporary until replacing the cable.

Cannont open the Engine Compartment


I had the same problem with a 2000 MR2. I took the easy way out and opened it while the engine was cold and unbolted the latch mechanism, leavint the hood unlocked. It you want to keep the hood lockable, you might add a spacer to the cable between the cable sheath and the latch.

cable is a little worn,but what you can do is open the hood.on each side or the core support,its the long piece that is above the radiator are 2 black rubber hood stops,you can try bringing them up a little at a time(3/4-1 turn)equally as this will put more pressure on the hood and should pop right open.It may take mor ore less than the turns I said,also lube the hood latch with some good lube not WD-40 hope it works have a good day DB
