If parts are scarce......you can also use a short length of wire and run it out through the front grill and open it by pulling the wire.
Just make it so nobody can see the wire.

My father is trying to sale his 1988 2 door cadillac deville he had it park 4 a while and went to put a new battery in but the cable for the hood release broke and is unable to open the hood ! is there any...


If the cable is broken at the hood release lever, I have had luck getting a hold of the cable with a pair of Vise Grips and pulling on it to get the hood open. Once it is open, you can tie a piece of wire to the hood release and let it hang down in the front grille area temporarilly until the vehicle is sold or until you buy a new hood cable assembly.

The hood release handle on my 1978 Corvette broke. Is there an emergency hood release cable on the car? And if so, where is it?


I don't think there is an emergency hood release cable, However, a body shop may know a trick to getting it open for you without damaging anything.

Cable broke on my 1997 jeep cherokee, how do i pop the hood?


depends on where it broke if it broke off on the release end inside you can take off the kick panel and remove the release bracket then go up about 3-4 inches and cut the casing around the cable and grab the cable with a pair of pliers and pop the hood. then you can replace the assembly with a new one.

Hood cable broke any way to release the hood without it


If the cable broke right at the internal handle you can sometimes grab the end of it with a vise grip. If it broke in the middle you may have to remove the grill, and then remove the locking mechanism on the bottom side of the radiator support. Sometimes you can trip the release from there with a screwdriver. But I would advise taking the grill out to get to it.

How to open hood.


You have to find the broken cable from underneath the vehicle and pull it with a pair of vice grips until it releases. You cannot relatch the hood until a new cable is installed, so have it towed to a shop instead of trying to drive it with the hood "tied".

Hood release broke


you are going to have to either remove the panneling to get at the cable and pull it with vise grip or try to get up inside the hood from the front and release the latch that way . either way is going to be tough to get to.
