I have a 96 Volvo 850. The hood pops open from the release latch in the cab. The safety latch in front of the car that comes out from the grill will not release the hood from opening Suggestions?


I have the same problem on mine. Once the hood is released inside the cabin, do the following:
Push the release in on the hood, then pull up a bit on the hood and then the release should pull out completely unlocking the hood. Hope this helps.

Can't open the hood by pulling hood release


Cable is stretched/sprung. Access hood release panel and pull cable with channel locks.. or worse, something is stuck in the latch mechanism under hood.
See repair rep at Ford in any case.

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.

The inside hood release wire pulled out but it wont spring back


You need to replace the hood release mechanism. You can access the hood release from under the car - you'll need access to a pit though. Good luck

How yo open hood when inside hood release is


See if you can take the inside hood release down from its mounting position,And hopefully the end that is defective is in this area. If so, see if you can grab the cable with a pair of vise-grips and pull the hood open.

The hood will not release to open. I released the inside lever & the hood poped up a little. In the grill there is a plastic "T" lever that you pull to release the hood. I have pulled it hard & the...


So I gather that the release inside the car has release the hood's primary catch, but the T handle is not release the secondary catch to allow the hood to fully open.

If this is the case, take some lithium grease or WD-40 (lithium grease is much better and lasts much longer) and spray it onto the catch assembly.

Try pulling on the T handle some more after a few minutes of the grease soaking in and see of that releases.

If that doesn't work, then take a long flat screw driver and press it against the catch gently hit the screw driver with a hammer (you should be trying to push the catch towards the driver's side of the car)
You may need someone to be pulling on the T handle as you hit the catch with a hammer. I actually had to do this with a jetta before....

Inside hood release on 1991 Suburban won't release. How do I open hood to repair?Inside hood release on 1991 Suburban won't release. How do I open hood to repair?


Hi Gillespi,

The hood release cable on my cherokee slipped out of its mount on the latch a while ago. Here's how I got the hood open to fix it.

You're going to need a set of long needlenose pliers and a flashlight.

Get in front of the car and shine the light through the grill. You're looking for the release cable where it attaches to the hood latch.

There will be an anchor point for the outer sleeve where the cable itself is exposed. Grab the cable with the needlenose and pull out and to the right. You'll be surprised at how easily it clicks open.

Best regards,
Mike
