    Thank you very uch for your comments. I could open the bonnet with the help of my friend who used a vice and pulled on the wire.



    However it seems that the string got stretched. Any ideas how uch should it cost to change the string?

You need to take a coat hanger & bend it to fit in the front of the car & pull the latch. I know it's vague but it needs to happen. Or,check to see if the cable broke at the inside latch release & grab the end with a vise grip & pull.

    I'd say around $20-30 for the part & about an hour shop time or do it yourself. Not that hard to put in.

When the lever is pulled by another person...lightly give the bonnet a strike with the palm of your hand which can dislodge the latch from striker on the bonnet. If the lever/cable isnt pulling on the latch,go from underneath and manually release this a long small thin screwdriver

How to open zetec bonnet with a broken pull lever


From the bottom. Few times have I seen it broke at the latch. Reach up and cut the cable in half( as far as you can away from the latch). Then cut a couple inches of the cable sheathing of at the latch side. expose the cable, then pull the cable to open. If it did break at the latch, then you'll need a long pick(right angle or hook). You'll have to reach up in the latch to grab the arm to release the bonnet.

How do you repalce a hood latch on a 1997 dodge caravan


  • To replace the actual hood latch is really very easy.
  1. Open the hood.
  2. Now on the latch itself you will see two bolts (one on each side)
  3. Remove them two bolts.
  4. Pull the latch up a bit.
  5. Now you see the cable for the latch.
  6. Push the cable forward a bit.
  7. Now take a Flathead screwdriver and pop the cable out of the little clasp holding it.
  8. Now take the new latch and reverse the steps I have listed and that's it. Your done. Should take 10-15 minutes for anyone to do at home.

  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.
