If the cable broke right at the internal handle you can sometimes grab the end of it with a vise grip. If it broke in the middle you may have to remove the grill, and then remove the locking mechanism on the bottom side of the radiator support. Sometimes you can trip the release from there with a screwdriver. But I would advise taking the grill out to get to it.

How to open the hood when the hood release is not working.


Pull the release and have someone hit the hood with there hand in the middle of the hood, by the latch/front. Then adjust the latch upwards. If the cable is broke then go from the bottom and push the release left or right to release. Follow the cable.

My father is trying to sale his 1988 2 door cadillac deville he had it park 4 a while and went to put a new battery in but the cable for the hood release broke and is unable to open the hood ! is there any...


If the cable is broken at the hood release lever, I have had luck getting a hold of the cable with a pair of Vise Grips and pulling on it to get the hood open. Once it is open, you can tie a piece of wire to the hood release and let it hang down in the front grille area temporarilly until the vehicle is sold or until you buy a new hood cable assembly.

The hood release cable seems to be malfunctioning on my 2001 Pathfinder SE. The inside release handle pulls without much restance and does not return to it's proper position. The hood does not unlatch. It seems that the cable is broken. How do I open the hood?

Cable for hood release has broken somewhere under the hood. How do I release the hood without the cable?


The first thing You need to do is go to a Salvage yard where you can remove this part yourself. What you want to find is how the car is put together. Observe how the Grille comes apart. Maybe take a digital picture. Remove the hood release from the Salvage car and keep the extra attaching nuts and bolts in case you drop some when reassembling your car.

Second, disconnect the hood release handle from the interior of the car. Then pull on the cable and if it is broken pull out the broken piece. It is possible that it broke close to the interior. Then you would be able to cut the cable in a place which still has the metal piece in it. You could then grab the remaining cable and pull on it to free the hood. You may have to work from beneath the car to access the broken part.

But if you went to the Salvage yard you will know how to remove a grille without breaking your own grille. Now you have two solutions-grab the broken part without removing the grille, or removing the grille and then work on the cable.

I hope this helps you.

The hood release handle on my 1978 Corvette broke. Is there an emergency hood release cable on the car? And if so, where is it?


I don't think there is an emergency hood release cable, However, a body shop may know a trick to getting it open for you without damaging anything.

i believe you can remove the grille without opening the hood and that will give you access to the hood release so you can open it manually and then fix the broken cable
Hope this helps!
