2008 Mitsubishi release cable for Hood not working. When pulling on release inside car, the hood does not pop open to reach under and release the safety latch

I have a similar problem on my 2006 VW Passat.

I'm able to open the hood two ways:
1) ask someone to hold onto the lever inside the car while you try to lift the hood to the point where you can use the unlatch button and open the hood fully.

2) Pull the lever completely open in the car and try to find a thick screwdriver or some thick paper folded up to wedge next to the lever to hold it open while you get out and try to lift the hood to the point where you can use the unlatch button and open the hood completely.

Other than this finding a service manual or tutorial online about how to pull out whatever trim or interior covers you would need to replace the cable fully. There should be a specific replacement guide for this item since I'm sure it happens to car's at least semi-regularly

My 94 toyota hood release works from inside the car but the lever under the hood broken. how do i get the hood open

U should first try as best u can to open the hood with the lever even if its jus a small part of lever. If not then and if u dont have a hood latch cover u may be able to get the hood up by unbolting the hood latch bolts through the grill. Other sugguestion would probably b a pry bar squeezed in there carefully and pry and or while u r trying to mess wit the lever that may or may not b there.

    How do I open the hood of a Mitsubishi L300 ?

    1. Locate the interior hood-release lever under the dashboard on the driver's side of the interior of the car.

    2. 2

      Lift up and toward you on the hood release lever. The lever is connected to a cable that releases the hood. The hood will pop up about 1/2 inch when you pull the lever.

    3. 3

      Move to the front of the car and locate the exterior hood-release lever under the front of the hood. It is located near the middle of the vehicle, just beyond where the front edge of the hood meets the body. Lift up on the inner lever.

    4. 4

      Lift up on the edge of the hood while holding the inner lever in place. When the hood is up, find the hood prop and raise it, setting its tip in the hood-prop mount on the hood, to hold the hood up while you work in the engine bay.

    I have a 2001 Mitsubishi Eclipse. The hood won't open when you pull the lever. Is there another way to get the hood open.

    You will need helper for this. Have your helper pull on release lever when you tell them. You will probably have to park car on blocks or car ramps or if you don't have these you will have to jack up front of car. Looking up from under car you should see cable moving when assistant pulls lever inside car. There will be a spring over cable you are looking at. If cable is broken or just not moving all the way you will have to move it with needle nose vice grips towards drivers side to release catch. Before you do this though, try pressing down on hood when assistant pulls lever, this may relaese hood. Once you have hood opened ensure proper operation of release lever and adjust hood pin if necessary.

Then reach your hand under the front center portion of your hood to locate the external hood release lever. pull on this lever to fully release the hood. Two (2) separate hood release levers in two different locations.
