SOURCE: hood release cable is broken

Is there any part of the cable inside the cabin that you can pull with a pair of pliers? I suggest that you try that. You may need to disassemble it from the pull handle to make that work.

SOURCE: 1991 Lincoln Mark VII LSC spark plugs and wires

you don't have to worry about a special tool if you are replacing the wires but you will need a 5/8 socket with a rubber boot and an extension and maybe a swival to remove the plugs if there is an auto zone near by they will print you out a diagram for free

SOURCE: My hood latch is broken

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.

How can i open a hood laych that want let the hood cloes


Quite often the hood latch will not release for one of two reasons. Firstly, the latch is gummed up with old grease, and secondly the cable is kinked and does not release the latch. I is also possible that the latch is damaged, possibly at one time the hood was forced down at a slight angle which could damage the latch.
First, check the cable. Unhook the cable from the latch by pressing the latch back as far as possible with a tool and unhooking the cable. Let an assistant pull the hood release inside the vehicle and feel if the cable moves in freely and you can easily pull it back by hand. If not, replace the cable. Do NOT close the hood while you have the cable out!
Next, check the latch for free movement. If ally is well the only other problem is the bullet hook on the hood itself which may be either loose or adjusted in too far,

How can I open the hood on my 2000 lincoln towncar if the hood release is stuck


Look thru the grill and remove the 3 or 4 bolts holding the hood release latch to the support brackets. You might want to try looking from underneath also. There is no easy way. Once you have it open you can replace what ever is needed and reinstall the latch assembley.

I can't get my hood to open. The internal release works but the latch under the hood won't release. How can I get the hood open


While someone is pulling the thing inside the cars have someone outside the push down in the center front (where the latch is underneath) down. You may have to kind of push and release quickly. If the cable is still attached there it should release.

Technically it will fit, if you dont like having a hood. But again. Stick with the trusty 302, Toss a Novi 1000 on it, and enjoy.

The hood latch cable is broken or disconnected, how do I get the hood open to repair


if you can't pull cable under dash, need to access from under front of car. Try to pull cable or remove 2 screws holding latch on.
