SOURCE: 99 chevy malibu hood release problems

We have the same problem with our malibu. What I found is that the hood release handle inside the car gets stuck on the housing around the driver's side feet. Check if your handle is getting stuck there too because I thought for the longest time that the cable was the problem.

Hi: Have someone push down on the hood while you pull the release cable, while cable pulled have them lift up on the hood and it should release. Hood is probably released but stuck, latch out of adjustment or hood support rubbers ( located on rad support) are set to high causing latch to be to tight.

SOURCE: No hood release cable Chevy S10 truck

I have this same problem. You have to take a screw-driver (philips) and look between the hood and the grill and you will see the hood latch assembly. There will be a large gauge wire with a loop about the size of a large philips head screw-driver. This is the release. Take the screw-driver and push the wire towards the drivers side door and it will release.

SOURCE: the hood release cable is broken and the latch

You need to find where the front end of the cable attaches to the latch mechanism which may require removal of the plastic pan underneath behind the radiator. Once you find it you can manual pull it using needle nose pliers and a open end wrench or equal as fulcrum. Once you get it to pop then you can replace as needed.

How to pop hood from outside of 2004 chevy trailblazer

You cannot release the bonnet from the outside.

In any case the key should open the driver's door manually. You will need to turn it either once or twice in succession. If it will not open then pull on the handle and turn the key in the lock at the same time.

How do I go about replacing a broken hood release cable for a 2000 chevy silverado 1500?

Hoping it's broken at the release handle as they usually are! Get a roll of dead soft mechanics wire at the parts store. remove the cable at the hood latch end, and securely twist your mechanics wire to the cable end. Then wrap the connection with electrical tape, leaving enough wire to match the length of the release cable, and maybe a couple of feet more. SLOWLY, AND CAREFULLY pull the cable through into the passenger compartment.Remove the broken cable, and attach the new one.Pull it back in the other direction. This works, but you must be patient and gentle.Good luck!

Hood latch

Try spraying the latch mechanism with WD-40 or similar light oil and operating the release cable a number of times. Check the condition of the release cable if nothing happens. The latch itself may have a broken spring due to the low temps.

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..!!
