How can I open the hood of a '97 Jeep Cherokee when the rod that pops open the latch is disconnected under the hood?

some times pulling the cable sheath from the side as person 2 pulls lever gets it open (not snapped cable, but stretched)
well , that can be hard. (snapped)
its just a cable. so the tech looks at that.
he sees if the center wire in said cable is broken. is it?
i remove it from lever and pull just it (center) open now?
no, we find it pulls out, and is say 2 foot long. 1/2 normal.
he may see , yes, it is then asks self where exactly
he finds it broken say in the middle. so gains access to that point
and cuts the cable there there , and skins back the sheath,
then pulls the good side center wire, and opens the latch.
now he replaces the cable.
and calibrates it per those words in the FSM.

it has 3 fail modes.
  1. lever broken
  2. cable broken or streatched
  3. or latch broken or needs calibration (adjusted to spec).

the only magic here is the yanking cable at mid span.
while BOB pulls lever. (bob is common mechanics name,a joke?)

2005 Toyota Camry steering wheel tilt adjustment lever does not lock

I have a 2005 Toyota Camry and I had the same problem, the tilt steering lever would not lock the steering column into a fixed position. This is what I did to fix it. It should work for you too.

Purchase a 1" to 1-1/2" wide nylon washer at your local hardware store, a big-box store may not have it . Cost is under a dollar (was for me). It needs to be of a "fender" type variety(small hole for how wide it is) and about 1/8" thick or so.

You will need to access the steering column, so remove the plastic trim by removing the screws located behind the steering wheel. You will need to turn the wheel 90 degrees in each direction to do this.

The tilt lever is held in place by a nut with bolt, retention ring(?) and a set ***** bolt.

You must first remove the set *****, which is the one closer to the handle of the lever, with a 10mm wrench. (PHOTO 1). Counter-clockwise turns will remove it.
2005-toyota-camry-steering-wheel-tilt-ipfnsuttamkv5ztmvyuppjnw-3-0.jpg Once the set ***** is off you can remove the retaining ring which keeps the pivot-point nut from loosening. (PHOTO 2).
Remove the pivot-point nut using a 14mm wrench. This bolt is REVERSE threaded, so clock-wise is what will take it off. Sorry, no photos of this, its crowded under there.

Remove the lever and any broken bits of the original mechanism. (PHOTOS 3 & 4).
My broken bits do not equal the entire original part. Bits missing.
2005-toyota-camry-steering-wheel-tilt-ipfnsuttamkv5ztmvyuppjnw-3-17.jpg Place your new Nylon fender washer over the bolt followed by the lever and then the pivot-point nut. (PHOTOS 6 &7).
2005-toyota-camry-steering-wheel-tilt-ipfnsuttamkv5ztmvyuppjnw-3-23.jpg This is not a fender type washer, but it is what I used and it seems to have worked well. I think a smaller hole would be preferable--you can always enlarge a too-small hole.


2005-toyota-camry-steering-wheel-tilt-ipfnsuttamkv5ztmvyuppjnw-3-38.jpg Tighten the nut (turning counter-clockwise) until things snug up. Try the lever and check if it feels like it used to. Keep snugging up the nut until the lever tightens enough to hold the wheel where you want it without it moving or sliding out of position. This may take several attempts. Once you have it where it feels right, replace the retaining ring over the nut and replace the set ***** tightening it (clockwise) firmly.

Replace trim and done!

10 to 20 minutes, very basic tools and materials for under a dollar. All for what a dealership would charge over $500 for plus labor. I hope this helps, it worked for me!

Why wont my fuel flap open anymore?

If there is an internal release lever, some pump jockey may have broken the latch mechanism inside the door. Had that happen on my '95 Sable.

Hood release doesnt work

Possible the metal cable has snapped or there is fault in the link to the hood lock or the pulling lever. You will need to use a screw driver to release the hood by pushing the lever on the hood lock. Once this is done then the mechanism can be traced for smooth motion , use lubrication on the linkages to make the levers work smoothly as also on the locks.

I have a 1998 saturn SL2. im trying to change the front speakers but the door panel is not coming off. how do you remove the door panel to get to the speakers?

remove the little cosmetic piece of the mirror inside the car, remove the door pull, remove the opener lever disconnecting the snaps holding the mechanism to the rods. get a tool and go around the edges and bottom loosening the snaps. open the window and lift the door panel up and out. replace the speakers. put the panel back on in reverse order. install the pull and the cosmetic piece. go get drunk. wake up the next day and with a set of needle nose pliers attempt to hook those snaps back onto the rods and reinstall the opener lever mechanism.

Hood Lever Broken


The lever pulls a steel wire that releases the hood latch mechanism. Find the wire and pull it hard using a pair of pliers, that should take care of the opening part.

To replace the lever, you can either go to the dealer or to the Junk Yard. That is not a part that autopart stores have on stock. If you decide to go to the Yard, remove the broken one and take it with you, it may save you an extra trip.

Don't forget to rate this post. Good Luck.
