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 =)

SOURCE: cant get in car to pop hood, dead battery key hole jammed!!

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.
Good Luck.

SOURCE: hood latch problem on 2003 saturn vue

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.

HELP!! 1992 buick lesabre Hood release cable snapped. no way to get hood open..


You may need a professional to get this hood open, and it will likely need to be on a car lift. Try this if you are handy, try removing the driver side fender well liner for access to the latch.

How do I gain access under the hood?


By pulling the hood release located inside the vehicle on the drivers side. If the inside latch is not broken have someone push down very hard on the hood while you pull on the hood release. If the inside latch is broken you may be able to get under the front of the vehicle and use a long screwdriver to reach up and pop the latch.

I have a 1996 Audi A4 Quattro, and the release lever in the cab will not unlock the hood. ive tried pulling te secondary release lever in the grille of the car and nothing happens. any idea of how I might...


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.

Please do rate my response. Thanks!

How do I get the hood unlatched


Only two ways to go about it, maybe 3 if you have an axe. Get another car just like yours, park it next to your car, look closely at the mechanism that releases the hood, see if you can poke a piece of stuff wire in there through the grille to pop the hood. If not, can you reach up inside the motor comp and grab the cable that comes from the latch, give it a good yank if you can, it might pop, after all that, get the axe, only kidding. My daughter's mustang had a hole for the wire to go into and it popped open. For some reason I couldn't get it to do it again, hope this helps.

Hood is jammed closed, inside latch will not release hood.in side latch is fully up, no pop on hood. hood is locked tight


I am not familiar with this particular car, however MANY times I have opened a hood by having one person hold the lever up (or out), while another presses down or hits with a closed fist, the hood near where it latches. After you get it open, thoroughly clean and lubricate the latch mechanism. I hope this helps you get in.
