Question about Cars & Trucks
The inside release is not working to open and the hood will not even click to open the hood. So I would like to know what to do to open the hood if I can not do it from the inside. Thank you

don't know what vehicle but it's possible if you look through the grill you may be able to see the cable and using a screwdriver pry the mechanism to open it be carefull if it's a plastic gill you could break it

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!

on the left side of the drivers side their is a panel with the hood release
Pull off the cover of the hood release and you will see a cable connected to the hood release. take some pliers and give it a good pull.
if you dont hear a click, have someone pull the hood up while you pull on the hood release cable. next their will be little space to take off the grille for easier acces. take off the grille carefully by prying it off carefully on each side. push the grill up and pull it towards you going up then down.
Now all you have to do is stick a flathead screwdriver or philips. and on the bottom of the hood release on the hood stick the screwdriver under the release and push the screw driver down while pushing the hood up.
