Toyota Corolla Hood is stuck

The battery died on my Toyota and I can't get the hood opened to recharge it. There's tension on the wire below the dashboard, yet the hood won't open. Any ideas?

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.

Where is the starter for a 2003 toyota corolla located? Thanks!


Hi,
Standing in front of your Corolla with the hood open ,the starter is located right below the intake manifold(curvy tube like looking ) This is in the center of the engine.
A plastic water guard underneath the car prevents you from seeing the starter from below.
That water shield will need to be removed to access the starter.

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.

Hood will not release


You need to remove the black plastic mud guard from under the bumper, use a 10 or 12 mm socket with extention to reach the hood latch from under the car, un bolt the latch and lift the hood up to repair. Hope this helps.

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.

You may need to recharge your AC. The AC clutch relay seems to be a high failure item for this car. You can test by swapping relays under the hood. The AC clutch relay is located next to the negative battery post in the fuse box under the hood on the driver's side fender. It is the smaller relay marked "M/G CLT". This is available from Rockauto.com, $11.

My hood is stuck


the release lever is just to the right of center.
you have to push the hood down slightly to release the pressure or it will not open.you need to make a hook out of a nail thick piece of wire to get under the latch and push it up at the same time you put some downward pressure on the hood.a bent screwdriver will work fine as a pry tool as well
