What i did was keep pulling up and pushing down on the hood with my left hand while working the lever with my right. Once you get it open lube the cables on both sides and adjust your hood. Another thing is too roll over a bumpy surface while working the hood lever.If all this fails ecklers corvette sells a hood latch lever to reach the release springs.

Have someone push down on that part of the hood while you pull the release. Usually that frees it and it should be adjusted up so it will open again

1999 Audi Quatro A6 hood release is not working. How can I open my hood?


Under the car:
You will be able to open the hood if you pull off your splash guard and use a long long flat head screwdriver or something like that. You'll see the hood latch in front of the radiator with the cable attached to it at the top near the hood, put it on the drivers side edge of the bottom of the latch and pry to the passenger side, the lever moves from the drivers side to the passengers side, the cable basically pulls the top of it to achieve this. so your doing the same thing on the bottom with the screwdriver.

Release the latch from underneath by the lever that you have to pry towards the passenger side. Then open the hood, and replace the safety release mechanism broken cable.

Please do rate my response. Thanks!

How do you open a hood on 1976 corvette when cable is broke?


If the cable broke in the cabin, pull off the side panel in the footwell and use a pair of channel locks or good pliers to pull on the cable to get the hood open.

If it broke at the hood you'll probably need to lift the car and see how to get to the release by getting between the radiator, front end and grasping the latch.

My 1985 corvette hood will not pop open from the left side of the hood


I had this problem with my 85. The cables are adjustable to each side and your left needs tightened. With the hood open, look where it connects and you will see a plastic part on the end of the cable.Notice there is a place to put a wrench and this allows you to adjust. Very simple to turn which tightens ( or loosens ) the cable. The trick for you is to get the hood to open to make the adjustment. I played with the hood release under the dash until mine finally opened. It might require pulling on the cable itself under the dash with pliers. This adjustment is a great feature when the cables get a liitle older and longer.

Passenger side hood will not release


Hood latch on passenger side needs adjusting, Have someone put pressure on side of hood when
you are pushing the hood latch release.
This may help them when they are pulling up on the hood.

Inop hood latch 1985 corvette


In the windshield wiper area on both sides of the car you will see a rubber plug about 1 inch in diameter. Use a flatblade screw driver (about 8-10 inches) and poke this plug out of its hole into the engine compartment (you can recover it later.) Insert your screwdriver through the hole until you find the release latch. Just push it until it releases.
