Spray the hell out of the releqse mechqnism under the hood with WD40. Put a small screwdriver in there and manually pull that release lever in the direction opposite of spring tension.
once opened, spray it more and wire brush.all ruaty areas. Check.latch for damage to make sure its in right position when closing

Honda civic hood latch


The metal loop on the hood is probably misaligned from the latch at the bottom. The loop should have a couple of bolts to loosen and adjust.

Hood release inside my 2000 ford focus popped to release but I can not open the hood of the car? what should I do?


Might just be stuck. Have someone pull the release as you FIRMLY pound on the front of the hood in the middle with your fist (NOT A HAMMER ! ! ! !).

If that works and it opens, get some WD40 and spray the latch and cable, lever, etc... and then work the release lever before closing it again. If the cable has broken....... it is very difficult to release without some automotive knowledge. I'm betting it is just stuck...


Good Luck.

How do I open the hood of a Mitsubishi L300 ?


  1. Locate the interior hood-release lever under the dashboard on the driver's side of the interior of the car.

  2. 2

    Lift up and toward you on the hood release lever. The lever is connected to a cable that releases the hood. The hood will pop up about 1/2 inch when you pull the lever.

  3. 3

    Move to the front of the car and locate the exterior hood-release lever under the front of the hood. It is located near the middle of the vehicle, just beyond where the front edge of the hood meets the body. Lift up on the inner lever.

  4. 4

    Lift up on the edge of the hood while holding the inner lever in place. When the hood is up, find the hood prop and raise it, setting its tip in the hood-prop mount on the hood, to hold the hood up while you work in the engine bay.

02 intrepid hood safety latch wont release


If you pull on the release handle inside the car and it does not "pop" the hood open, make sure the hood is not already "popped". If it is, then try to push the hood down firmly until it does not pop up anymore. Then, try the interior pull handle again. If the hood is completely closed and the pull handle does not pop it open, try to remove the handle slightly from the dash. This involves removing 2 phillips head screws (one from either side of the handle). When these are out, you should be able to pull the handle and its small trim/holder piece. See if this is broken and try to pull back on the actual release cable ("silver" braided wire) with a pair of wires.

If nothing above pertains to the issue, then let me go to a different one. If the pull handle works fine and "pops" the hood like normal, but you are unable to unlatch the hood, then I need more information as to the conditions of the problem. Has it released properly in the past?

Also, make sure that you are pulling the correct lever when trying to unlatch the hood. Standing in front of the car facing it, the lever will be just to the left of the very center of the hood. It should have a yellow end. Pull up on that and everything should release.

If these ideas do not help you out, then I will need more information. Let me know and I'll be glad to help you through.

Hood will not release


pull the lever and with your hand pull up on the hood. You may need somebody to hold the lever inside the car while somebody pulls up on the hood. The spring mechanism may be faulty.
