Try having someone pressing down on the leading edge of the hood as you actuate the release. Sometimes they start binding and the less pressure on the latch the better. If you do get it open lubricate all latch points and the cable or it will get worse.

1999 BMW 528i interior hood release cable missing how do I open hood


The hood catch is so well inclosed, you won't get the hood open manually. No tricks here. There has to be a release inside the car. If the handle is just missing, and you can get to the release cable, just pull it with a pair of pliers.

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

The interior hood release isnt working is there a way to relase the hood manually from outside the truck on a 2010 toyota tundra


try this,have another person push down on the hood in the front of your truck,while they apply downward pressure,pull hood release out,keep the hood release pressure pulled out,tell the other person to let up on hood,then release the pressure you have on the hood release handle and hood should pop up.if this does'nt work,you have a broken hood release cable.that means you'll have to get on the ground under front of truck and reach up to the hood release cable with pliers and pull the cable release manually.good luck hope this helps and thank you for choosing fixya.com

I Have a 1992 Buick LaSabre. The interior hood release BROKE. Normal maintence I can't do anymore. How can I open the hood from underneath. I really need a diagram as I have to do this repair blind


When you say the hood release broke do you mean that you think that cable snapped? Or could it be that the latch is sticking. I had a very similar problem where I would pull on the interior hood release latch and my hood would not pop-up/spring-up to then have a lever under the hood pushed to fully life the hood to look into the engine. What I would say might be the problem is that if the cable is still intact then you might try pulling the hood release a few times to try to release the the hood so that it could spring up. Then (even if the hood does not pop up) go to the hood itself and shake it up and down. I just grab it by the grill and vigorously lift it up and down until it springs up enough to reach my hand underneath the hood to release the latch to be able to lift the hood.
Then you will want to get a can of WD-40 or some other degreaser with lubricant and apply that to the latching mechanism itself. In doing this it will break-up any foreign material on the latch and possibly the cable that would be preventing the latch from releasing. I would say you might want to apply the WD-40 on a regular basis maybe once every 3-6 months just to prevent future build-up/problems. If you have problems more frequently then of course you might want to apply the WD-40 more frequently than 3-6 months, you be the judge of this.
If this does not help then I don't have any other recommendations as I only know this to be a solution to the problem that I had that was similar. In closing, be sure to not get any of the lubricant/degreaser on belts or other parts that should not by slippery. I hope things work out for you.

Hood release not working


you will have to pop the mechanism open from under the car this may be a little difficult you will need a very long screw driver or a pry bar and hopefully you be able to see the latch from under the car.if you can then reach up and manually release the latch once open you will have to replace your cable or the cable tie down which ever is bad. if not you will have to make a new release that you can use on the outside of the car.

Hood release 2004 VW Jetta


There's a hood release lever inside your Jetta by your left knee. Pull this lever to partially release the hood. 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.

Where is hood latch on 99 Geo Tracker


It is in the glove compartment to keep theives from opening the hood and stealing the vehicle or engine parts. Since the vehicle is a Jeep-style convertible, the interior is not secure.

To open the hood do the following (I own a 1997)

open the glove box.
reach up and to the right and you will feel the handle.
Pull handle.

The hood will still look closed, so you have to lift up on the front of the hood and then push the internal release, whioch is in the middle of the front of the hood.

E-mail me w/ any questions @ cskalski@cox.net

1999 F250 Hood Release Not releasing Hood, Cable attached to Leve


when you pull the hood release lever, you may not hear anything, and the hood won't move, and when you walk to the front, it is still seated, if you can get your fingertips to grap the bottom of the hood (just above the silver trim) you can pull it up..mine does that, it doesn't seem to work, but you have to pull up on it and it kicks up a couple inches and you can reach the lever
