On each side of core suport under hood are rubber bumpers if you unscrew them so they are pushing the hood up just a little and oil the latch real good it should work you may have to adjust this a few times to get it right good luck and let me knod if it works...

Hood release doesnt work...2005 elantra...hood latch under hood wont pop open the hood


From under front of vehicle, lay under hood and remove the hood latch with a long extension and rachet. This works on most vehicles. God-Bless!

Mercury Sable Problems


while pulling release handle punch the hood near wiper side with bottom of your fist or have someone else do it if you can't reach it while pulling out handle,if you see front of hood lift in any way you should be able to open it then,but before closing it again you should spray the hood latch with a good amount of wd40,that usually get hood working normal again.

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.

2002 Mercury Grand Marquis hood relese won't release hood. Have to pull release and drive a bumpy road.


take a close look at the male part of your hood latch. should be a heavy spring on it which pops the hood up a bit to allow you to get your fingers in to fully release it. could be missing or bent. You can buy another at a junkyard, most likely any from a full size ford or mercury 95-05 will work. either that or the female release part is stuck and needs some grease.

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.

When I pull the hood release the hood dosnt pop, you can hear the wire moving under the hood but its not doing nothing.. how do I get it open?


Sounds like the latch is slightly out of adjustment. Have someone pull up on the hood edge while you release the hood from inside. Once open, spray some white lithium grease on both components of the hood latch. The latch strike bolts usually have slotted holes to allow for adjustment. If you loosen them slightly, and then close the hood, it should align itself, then open the hood carefuly and retighten the bolts.. IF you cannot get the hood open, chances are the cable is loose from the release, and you may have to remove part of the grille to access the underside of the latch to replace the cable.

Hood release wont engage


The hood bumpers are worn or misaligned. After pul;ling the vever, push at one end of the hoods front section as if your trying to rattle it. Most the time they do release. If it doesn't try the oposite side this way. Upon opening it if possible work the latch manually to see if it does work. If it does use lubraplate lithiuim grease on all movable parts
