Buick 1991 Century: Broken hood release cable somewhere inside.

Quick and easy... Get a saws all and slice that ****** open, get a new latch and whatnot from the junkyard. Don't have a saws all? Get a hacksaw blade raps on paper towels and duct tape around it for a handle and go at it. That duct tape may come in handy until you can get a latch too!

I have a 94 buick century, the hood relase is not broken but it does release the hood. is there a way to get the hood opened.

have someone pull the release while you push down/lift up on the hood. If you get it open , put a bit of grease on the latch mechanism , and check the allignment of the pin that is mounted on the hood.

Front turn signal 1990 Buick Century

Hi Angela, what you need to do is look under the hood and basically locate the backside of the light that your wanting to change the bulb in. You'll see a wiring harness going to that area. Give the plug a twist and pull the old bulb out.
