The only way i can think of would be to remove your bumper so you can get to the latch, and either unbolt the latch from the core support or unbolt it from the hood.

Loose hood cord 95' civic, first I had to push the little latch that makes the hood shut completely with a screw driver now it won't even open (the hood) I pulled on the cable with pliers but no...


Just perform some checks please,
  • try to pull the hood release lever with its cable tightly pulled towards you.
  • that may tighten the loose cable so a release can happen
  • then pull out the hood piece hard, so the lock would release.
  • trimming is not a good idea, because it would be hard to set it back into the assembly.
  • try this, good luck. vote it!!

There is no emergency latch. The best way to get it open is to remove the cable from the release latch in the footwell, then use a pair of pliers to pull the cable and open the hood. You might even have to strip the cable covering back a little to get to the cable.

Hood latch broken; can't open


if in fact the latch is broken, you'll have to remove the grill or attempt to pop the latch open through the grill. However I have been a Honda tech for 9 years and have never seen a latch break. its always the cable. in which case depending on where the break is you might be able to pull on some of the cable. good luck

What you should do is spray the latch with pb blaster,556,or wd40.Shut the hood and after a couple of times it should work better also do a visual inspection of the latch and make sure nothing is bent.

How do you open the hood to a 1986 Honda Civic with a broken hood latch cable?


Slide under car in front center and slightly on the driver's side.
Reach really high and find the broken cable and tug to the right (towards the driver side tire). You may want to use a flashlight and locking pliers.
