Unable to get hood open. I released hood from button inside, but unable to lift hood up. Please advise


first, try smacking the hood at one of the front corners while someone else pulls the release handle. or even after you've pulled on it. if that works, once open, adjust and lubricate the hood latch assembly. if it still won't open, and it's the cable and not the latch you'll have to replace it anyway, so instead of removing the grill, cut the cable behind the pull lever under the dash where you can reach it. then skin the outer cable insulation away from the actual steel cable exposing an inch or two of it. then holding the insulation and plastic housing with pliers, grab the steel cable itself with pliers and pull it to open the hood. then replace the cable. the further you can reach up under the panel the better your chances of getting past the broken part of the cable and avoid removing the grill. you might also be able to gain access from up under the car if you're lucky.

The hood will not close all the way on my 2001 Pontiac Grand Prix. The hood release lever seems to be broken as well. Any ideas??


Adrian - I just experienced the same thing with my 01 GP. Seems to have been caused by the cold weather. If you can open the hood using the outside release, look down into the latch mechanism and you will see where the cable slips into a washer like device (dime sized). Use a screw driver to push the round piece with the cable in it towards the passenger side about a half inch. The hood should now close. If the spring on the latch mechanism is stretched you will have to eventually replace the whole mechanism. Sometimes just pushing it and spraying with lubricant will fix it for good - sometimes not. If not you will have to push it over each time you want to close the hood.

MY INSIDE HOOD RELEASE HAS BROKEN. IS THERE ANY


depending on where the cable is broken your can still release and open the hood. if it is broken inside the van in the footwell is the easiest...locate the end of the cable and with a set of visegrips pull the cable to release the hood.

Hood release cable isn't connected to interior hood release lever


Your going to have to use vice grips or pliers. Just pull hard till you hear the hood pop open or have a friend push down on the hood so you can pull in the hood cable easier to unlock the hood latch. Good luck and keep me posted.
