There is a small metal cable attached to the latch inside. adjust the cable to where it is tighter and it should pop open correctly.

Safety catch on hood wont release and hood wont re latch!


I would check to see if the hood release moves when the inside lever is pulled then pushed, if not the cable and latch mechanism may need lubrication or be broken.

I need to open the hood of my 96 Oldmobile Cutlass Supreme, but my hood release latch is broken. How can I open the hood with out it?


There's a few ways. Either break your bumper grill, which I don't like to do to access the hood cable at the latch to pull, or cut the cable where it connects the the lever inside the car. Strip the plastic coating enough to where you can get a pliers or vise grip on the center metal cable to tug. If the latch under the hood itself is seized, try spraying some WD-40 at it and letting it sit for a few minutes. Sometimes it takes pulling up on the hood and pulling on the cable at the same time. Once open, spray more on the latch.

Hood latch is pulled open but hood is stuck closed how do I get the latch to release.


Have one person pull on the latch inside and the other person pull up on the hood (sometimes depending may have to use a thin screwdriver to pry up carefully not to chip the paint). Once open lube the hood latch under the hood with wd-40. Make sure the latch inside is still connected to the wire.

2001 s10 hood wont open with latch, tried bouncing hood while latch pulled but will not work. What now, read remove grill but looked at instructions, said open hood take out four screws under hood.


look at the cable sounds like when you pull the release lever the cable is sticking and not moving enought to pull the latch over usually you can reach up from under and give it an extra pull ,have someone else pull the lever in the truck while you look up under the bumper you should be able to see if the latch is moving

My hood wont pop open on my 1999 isuzu trooper.


If the cable is not broke have someone pull on the latch inside while you repeatedly press down on the hood. It might take a few tries but it should finally pop. Once it does open spray the latch and linkage with a silicone spray to get it lubricated and do this frequently to prevent it from happening again. If the cable is broke inside at the handle you will have to remove the kick panel, strip the coating back on the cable and pull the cable with a pair of pliers it should release. If the cable is broken under the hood, you will need to remove the grill and use a screw driver to release the latch.

It's really a 1991 chevy caprice classic


After you have pull the hood latch inside try beating on the front corners of the hood to see if it will pop up enuf jus to get ahold of the latch(under the grill on the drivers side). You can also get to the latch from under the car but make sure you pull the cord inside first
