SOURCE: Hood latch cable replacement ,

I have a broken cable on a 2002 focus. I now use a flat steel ruller and insert it between the bottom fins of the grill infront of the rad. Use a flashlight to see the latch mechanism where the cable pulls on for the first few attempts until you are use to finding the location. You don't want to jab the rad. I am currently scouring the wreckers for a replacement.

SOURCE: My hood latch won't latch when I close the hood. 1997 Ford Exped

Hrmm. Have you taken the whole latch assembly off ? If not there is a black cover over the assembly which has about 6 screws on it that is also connected to th fan shroud, then after that it's only 2 bolts to undo I believe they are 5/8ths socket, dont quote me. My 97 just had the same problem I popped the hood one day and then it didnt close again. So after taking the assembly out there are 2 springs one that is for after the hood is popped to just open it up that is a big spring about 2 1/2 inches or so. Theres another one at the bottom though that actually keeps the hood latched down on my truck it was rusted and snapped in half. I went to the ford dealer said I had to buy a whole new assembly 25$ plus 2 days wait, I went to home depot in the hardware section found a pack of springs that contain (2) 2 1/2" inch springs and (2) 1 1/2" for 4 dollars used the small one to replace it now I have back up for both. Hopefully this is your problem cause it's cheap and easy to fix just open it up. Let me know if this is it.

SOURCE: Hood release under the dash has no tension on it. Hood will not latch closed

The latch is stuck in the open position. I always found white lithium grease worked best on those latches but any good lubricant will work. Try moving the latch manually with a screwdriver. After applying the lubricant move the latch a few times. You should see the tension return to the release, if it doesn't you have a broken release cable.

SOURCE: Broken hood release cable 1996 Ford F150 pickup

On each side of the latch there is an 8mm screw that can be removed through the front, between the hood and grill They are aprox 6" apart.

The latch itself has two locator pins that slide into the front suppoprt behind the grill.

After removing the two screws, gently pry the whole latch away from the support. The hood can be raised, taking the latch with it.

Access to the release lever is behind the latch. It is now exposed.
pull the tiny release lever toward the drivers side and latch will come loose. Good luck!

If the handle is just broken use pliers to pull the cable that hooks to the handle.
If the cable is broken you will have to work through the grill. You will see on the drivers side of the hood latch where the cable enters. You can remove the cable holding bolt if applicable and pull the cable there.
If all that fails you will have to remove teh latch by removing the 2 screws on both sides of the latch.

How to open hood 2008n nissan versa hood latch cable broken


I know a trick from a local body shop. If you have a sawzall with a metal blade, then cut the latch to open the hood, and go to a salvage or junk yard to get a replacement and install. Be sure to put a new cable in to replace the broken one, of course.

The hood release cable is broken at the front of the truck. Even with vice grips and pulling, the hood will not pop. I sprayed WD40 on the latch. I'm not sure where the manual release is or how to get...


have a partner push down on the hood and or pull up changing the motion while you are pulling and releasein the cable, can be very difficult.... the two bolts holding the latch can often be removed so the latch can rise with the hood but will need a 1/4 swivel socket and then even a lil finesse to remove but keep lubing and working with two people before that method

How do you install a hood release cable in a 1999 300m


piece of cake for me, probably hell for you but here goes, open the hood, Disconnect the cable from the latch wich is located on your hood, then dislocate the other side of the cable from inside the vehicle (under the steering column, left side it should say hood release on the handle). Once this is acomplished look at the grommet openinig where the cable actually goes through the firewall, you must now determin if the cable can slide through easily, I usually attach the new cable to the old cable with electrical tape then I spray the whole cable down with WD-40, then I slide the cable out while pulling the new one in place, remove the tape/oldcable and begin to run the cable exactly like the old one, warning: if you route the cable wrong your cable can bind, which means that your going to close your hood and it wont open up, so you need to run it exactly the same, and when your done dont slam your hood shut. Take a screwdriver and manually lock your hood latch, then pull the handle and make sure it opens easily, if the latch passes the test you should be okay

The hood release is broken on my 95 buick century and i ant open the hood any more even using plyers to pull the wires im sure i need to replace it or somthing but dont even know how to go about that if...


I think you should be able to get your hood open if you can get your hand up to it, I think that you can actually trigger the latch at the actual cable connection lever to get it open. Replacing the cable is a piece of cake. Remove the old on inside and remove your latch and disconnect the cable from it just goes in a groove, pull your old on out but attach a long piece of soft wire pull the cable out from inside the car. You may have to help to get it through the fire wall. after you remove it, attach the wire that you pulled through and tie it securely to the new cable, have some one help you and slowly work the cable back through and route it back the same way the old one was, reconnect to our latch and install latch exactly in the same place it was when you removed it, you should be able to tell by where the old bolts had been . Hope this helps you! God Bless, and Merry Christmas!
