Not easy but you can sometimes trip the lever by going thru the grill with a long screwdriver in flipping the lever sideways

The release for the hood latch will not unlock on my 2000 ford explorer. I have tried to pull the cable with pliers, but no luck.


Do you mean its detached from the cable? If so, see if you can reach the attachment point for the cable and pull in direction of the cable to release. If this is helpful a thumbs up or clicking helpful would be greatly appreciated. God Bless Y release-hood-latch-will-not-unlock-mi3qs3kfzvqijsqzkmg2vt51-3-0.jpg

How to open a broken hood latch on 2000 ford explorer


if it is broken from inside the cab, skin the cable housing until you get to the cable and grab it with pliers or vice grips and pull the release. If it is broken from the latch under the hood you are going to need to get to the latch and release it with something, anything that you can get in there and pull the release latch.

My hood got stuck and i cant open it how do i open it help


Common problem. Have someone pull the release while you bang on the edge of the front of the hood with the heal of your hand, keep on the edge as you can dent the hood very easy. it will pop open then spray the latch with WD40. Let me know if this works.

Opening hood on 1992 Ford Explorer


I had the same problem with my hood. I had that handy wire hanging out of the front but it didn't want to release the hood. The cable was jammed and the hood had to be manually released via ratchet. After you can get the hood open maneuver the cable under the plastic piece where the hood meets the grill to stop this from happening again.
