1992 toyota corolla hood does not latch closed

There appears to be a broken spring in the inside portion of the latch mechanism. I cannot locate a diagram to verify this nor a size for the spring.

Have you lubricated the mechanism? They all need it. Go to a salvage yard and get a used latch assembly. Keep it lubed.

Hatch closes tight then opens


The latch is not engaging all the way. It temporary does than release part way. It is similar to a hood latch. When you close hatchback the l?tch mechanism is supposed to close around the pin and lock tight for some reason your latch spring back a little. Could be the spring or locking clip. Might need a new latch mechanism. Easy to replace. Car won't lock because mechanism is broken

My car hood won't release to open


Greg, the spring in latch release is weak or broken probably or it is still seized and lubricant still has to be worked into it. You can probably get a replacement fairly cheap at auto recyclers.

Hood latch will not close all the way


Hi,

Grab a flashlight and a long screwdriver and peer straight down into the hood latch. You should see the end of the hood cable, it's looped in to a metal bracket. Have a helper pull and let go the hood release cable from inside the car, this cable should move to the when pulled, and return when released.

If it doesn't return, the cable is stretched, or a spring is broken from the cable assembly. Here's a quick fix:

Facing the car and using the screwdriver, push the bracket to your left as far as you can. This resets the latch. Drop the hood from about 2-3 feet above the latch. You need to close it with a bit of speed or the release mechanism will just move. It might take a few times of moving the cable and dropping the hood to get it to latch.

Permanent fix is to replace the cable.

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.

Can't get the hood to latch when closed on a 1995 Toyota


The latch may be closed already. Have someone pull the cable inside and move the latch by hand to the open position again.

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.

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.
