1999 Volkswagen Passat latch broke under hood to lift hood also hood doesn't stay up


If you have gas struts to hold the bonnet open then replace them as the gas pressure is low.. try using a long lever to come up in front of the radiator and pushing the latch sideways as some one presses down on the bonnet

Hood latch broke


You might have to take out the grill to get at the latch, or cut back the plastic part of the cable and use a pair of vise grips to pull the wire to open the hood.

Hood does not open


The latch could be stuck or the cable broke. You might try bumping the hood with someone pulling on the release.
Otherwise you may have to remove the grille to access the latch.

96 chevy s10 hood release cable broke need to open hood


On my 2002 s10 the small clip on the hood latch where the cable end attaches to the lever was broken.I finally drove a 3/4" mop handle and by prying,forced the grill down enough to unbolt the hood latch and after messing with it for a while I was able to reach behind the latch and press on it enough to drop the latch off the pin.Sure hope I don't ever have to do it again.

Inside hood latch broke, so how do i get under the hood of my 1995 chevy blazer


I would assume that the plastic handle broke from the cable? If so, try grabbing on the end of the cable with a pair of locking pliers. Latch onto the cable and hold the casing, then pull really hard. It should pop the hood. After you get the hood open, replace that cable, or if possible, leave the vice grips on it until you can get it to a shop to get it replaced.

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..!!

I have a 93 buick century and the hood latch cable broke how can i open the hood withoutit?


You have to start taking stuff apart to get to the hood latch. This might have to include removing body parts to get to the latch. You might be able t move the latch with a long long screw driver to pry it open. The latch itself . Do not try an pry the hood open you will only ruin the paint job and your screw driver.

Good luck

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.
