Question about 1996 Ford Mustang
THE LATCH IN SIDE THE CAR ON MY 1996 MUSTANG IS BROKEN. HOW CAN I GET THE HOOD TO POP? I NEED TO CHANGE MY BATTERY! HELP!
Hey under the hood in the front there's a latch on the left side.
you either wana push it down and use other hand to pull up the hood or it might be the other way; push it up then lift up the hood.
my latch is broken also and i opened it like that. i hope you find the latch =)

at this point you have 2 options, 1, go to a parts store and get a jimmy kit that helps you break into the car by unlocking the door, whicch sometimes can be tricky or if you have aaa they will unlock it for you for free, 2, you would have to reach from underneath and feel around for the cable, folow it to the latch assembaly and carefully release the latch assembaly, this way wil be very difficult and a tight area.

NO there is no manual way . get a good flash light and look at teh latch through the grill or from under the truck and try and pop it with a long flat blade screw driver

cable is a little worn,but what you can do is open the hood.on each side or the core support,its the long piece that is above the radiator are 2 black rubber hood stops,you can try bringing them up a little at a time(3/4-1 turn)equally as this will put more pressure on the hood and should pop right open.It may take mor ore less than the turns I said,also lube the hood latch with some good lube not WD-40 hope it works have a good day DB

SOURCE: My hood latch is broken
If the cable link to the latch is rusty or broken you have to take the front grid down. It's relatively easy. It's held there by plastic fasteners. Then reach for the latch with you hand, or the leftover broken cable. Pull it, it should release the first latch, than you just have to get to the security latch, like you usually do to open the hood.
