Did the handle break or the base? Typically the screws get loose and they won't tighten properly. That means you have to weld up the holes and redrill for new screws or weld nuts in for extra strength.

Hood lacht cable broke.How can I open hood?

Look at the handle first. Did the handle break or the end of the cable. Usually handles break. Replace it. Until then, use a pair of pliers to pull the cable. Is the cable broke. Usually there is enough sticking out to grab with pliers. Replace the cable. If broken on the latch end. Take it to a garage that has done them.

How do i open the hood manually the latch is broken. i have a black covered cable wire and the silver part of the wire is showing. i pull the latch nothing happens to release the hood

OK, if the cable is the part that broke AND it broke at the handle, then you can use a pliers or vise grip to grab the end and pull on it to pop the hood, if it broke somewhere inside the cable, then you will need some needle nosed pliers to reach under the hood and grab it there. if it broke off at the hood latch itself, then you will need to get/ make a hook or pushing rod to engage the mechanism directly to release the latch and then replace the cable the latch looks like this:

How to replace a grab bar?

i would think that this is the handles that are on the left and (or) right side of the windshield inside that car. if so there should be one or 2 oval inserts that cover the screws / bolts. carefully remove by GENTLY prying on the edge with a slow rocking motion. once removed simply remove the attaching hardware and reinstall handle ... there may be soon torque spec required if not available tighten fully and pull and twist the handle it should not move

1993 Nissan Sentra XE - Hood Release Broken.

Inside the car where you broke the handle off the hood release you will have to look under the handle or behind the dash to find the cable that it was attached to. IF you find the cable you can grab it with a pair of pliers and pull it to release the hood. It works just like bicycle brakes if you know what i'm saying. Very simple. You shouldn't have any issues finding it. THanks.

When you want to pop the bonnet you firstly release the catch from the passenger side footwell, them you pull the plastic release device which pops out from under the bonnet, if the plastic release device...

At the left floor the cable that releases the hood is behind the kick panel. The plastic handle that broke off can be accessed by removing the panel and you will see the last bit of the plastic handle that is threaded on the steel rod. I an emergency you can grab the rod with pliers and pull to release the hood (bonnet). Go to you local dealer and you can order a new handle or go to a wrecking yard and find your car model and just remove and purchase the used handle. You may be able to grab the rod that the handle broke off from with out removing the panel. Good luck.

My hood release cable is broken at the inside do I open my hood?

If there is a bit of the broken end of cable still visible where it broke off from the handle, try grabbing it with a pair of vise grips to pull it and open the hood.
Maybe the handle will need to be removed in order to get to the broken end of the cable.

My hood release cable on my 95 intrepid broke just wondering were is the release locaded so i can open my hood and hows an easy way to fix that.

Usually the handle breaks off the cable, you should be able to use some vise grips to grab a hold of the cable and pull it to open the hood. To repair it the cable assembly will have to be replaced. If not you will have to gain access to the latch which is located in the front center of the hood and using a screw driver or something similar push the lever to release the latch.

I have a 2000 Dodge Intrepid R/T and the drivers side door handle quit working from the inside. I can still roll down the window and unlock the door that way. Is there a way to fix it?

Pull the door panel off. There is a clip that holds the bar to the handle on the inside. The clip often breaks. Worst case you can grab the handle from a salvage yard for about 20 bucks.
