SOURCE: Hood Latch Wire ???

I had the same problem on mine. You can get to the latch from underneath right behind the bumper. You will need a long screw driver or pry bar to push the tab that the cable connects to. On mine I had to have someone push down on the hood slightly while I pushed the tab.

SOURCE: My 1998 Intrepid has a broken hood latch.

can you grab a piece of the cable from under dash?if so pull it and see if it will open.
if not you will have to try to get at latch from under car.
if you cant get at it find a reasonably priced body shop they are pros at getting stuff like that open
then get a new cable or pull handle or latch whichever it needs and replace it

SOURCE: 1998 dodge neon hood latch

use a coat hanger and go through grill and hook the hood latch. you can also lay under front of car with a few extensions and a rachet, and take out the bolts that hold hood latch. if both fail. remove grill if possible to get to hood latch. good luck !!

2000 Chevy Blazer with Broken Hood Release. How do I open the hood


can you reach the cable itself?,or is it broke at the hood latch?IF its not broken at the outside latch, try to follow the cable,un-hook it from the handle and pull on the wire cable to open it.IF its broken at the latch itself,you are going to have to reach the latch through the grille and try to pull the lever the cable connects to.That part is no fun at all..!!

My hood latch is broken on my 2001 Subaru Outback. How do I manually opent the hood? I think my problem is the same. I have a 1997 Legacy--when I pop the hood, it releases, but I can't located the latch...


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.

Olsmobile Silhouette latch stuck


Hi, my name is tommy.The easiest way to get the hood to open is have someone else stand outside the vehicle & push the hood down while you pull the release.It should release and when you get it open grease up the latch (wheel bearing grease works fine)and it should solve the problem.Hope i have been helpful.Have a good day.
