The cable is probably stretched out and not pulling latch far enuf to release it the latch itself could also be sticking it needs to be lubed

Hello Experts, I seem to have a problem getting my hood release to work, what is the best way to get my hood open when the specified manner of opening the hood does not work? I like to be able to...


Under the car:
You will be able to open the hood if you pull off your splash guard and use a long long flat head screwdriver or something like that. You'll see the hood latch in front of the radiator with the cable attached to it at the top near the hood, put it on the drivers side edge of the bottom of the latch and pry to the passenger side, the lever moves from the drivers side to the passengers side, the cable basically pulls the top of it to achieve this. so your doing the same thing on the bottom with the screwdriver.

Release the latch from underneath by the lever that you have to pry towards the passenger side. Then open the hood, and replace the safety release mechanism broken cable.

My 81 did that, cable has needs replaced under the hood. To open lift up hood on drivers side, slide hand under hood and pull cable where it hooks to latch.

1985 corvette, pulled the hood release and the diverside opened but not the passengers side so now i can't open the hood, how do i release the passenger side that is stuck


have someone push down on that part of the hood while you pull the release. Usually that frees it and it should be adjusted up so it will open again

Passenger side hood will not release


Hood latch on passenger side needs adjusting, Have someone put pressure on side of hood when
you are pushing the hood latch release.
This may help them when they are pulling up on the hood.

Hood release cable broken, how do i open the hood ?


I have a similar problem with my 1992 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme. The way I open the hood is to reach my hand between the radiator and the front of the car, and for me there is a bar running right up the middle if I follew that too the top, and on the drivers side of that bar should be the hood release, and I feel around till I feel the hood release cable, and then I push on the lever that the cable is attached too, most of the time this works. Hope this helps.

Inop hood latch 1985 corvette


In the windshield wiper area on both sides of the car you will see a rubber plug about 1 inch in diameter. Use a flatblade screw driver (about 8-10 inches) and poke this plug out of its hole into the engine compartment (you can recover it later.) Insert your screwdriver through the hole until you find the release latch. Just push it until it releases.

Hood release


I had the same problem with WD-40 and man power I over came it. Chances are your latch is rusting / corroded or gummed up. What I did was to lift the passenger side up a little not to much or you will bend the hood, follow the bar as far as you can and spray the release with WD-40. Have someone pull the cable and try moving the release bar on the passengers side back and forth. It may take a little doing but it should eventually release. You know the cable isn't broken because it does release the passengers side, when you finally get the hood open make sure you spray down all three of the latches.
