Need to replace a hood release cable but first need to open the hood without a hood release lever. Any suggestions? Also may need to adjust the hood mechanism because the hood is so hard to release.


Hi!!
Grab the release cable with a pair of channel lock pliers to pull it open. Lubricate all release mechanism including the release lever, that will easy the release lever.
Good Luck!! A HELPFUL - 4 THUMBS - rating for this solution would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for using FixYa.

Hood release broke


you are going to have to either remove the panneling to get at the cable and pull it with vise grip or try to get up inside the hood from the front and release the latch that way . either way is going to be tough to get to.

Hood release won't work.


you will have to go under the front of the car and reach up theough the grill and the radiator, the big space, and pulll ******* the release cable, if that does not work, you may have to cut the coating and metal braiding to expose the inner cable to pull on it....
