You might try to push down and pull up on the front of the hood (bonnet), while someone pulls the release lever. Also, you might try spraying some WD-40 towards the latch, maybe sticking.

How do i fix broken bonnet cable on s type jaguar 2003 model


You will need to reach up from underneath and either locate the latch and pull it or grip the cable near the latch and pull that to try and release the bonnet catch!

How to release the bonnet on a ford transit 2000


you will have to come up in front of the radiator with a long lever and push the latch lever sideways . Use a friend to push down on the bonnet as you push the lever as it will release the pressure on the latch and make it easier to move.

Replace the bonnet latch


you need to first check if the fault is the bonnet release cable or the latch if you cant get the bonnet open try to apply pressure to the release cable and have an assistant apply light pressure to the underside of the bonnet front lip once you get the bonnet open spray heaps of penetrating lubricant into the latch and try to operate it (without closing the bonnet )a few times that will usually free them up always lube the latch when servicing if it cannot be freed up you should be able to see the 10 mm headed bolts that retain the latch inn place

How can I get someone to fix a hood latch that won't open?


I have seen instances like this and it was the cable that leads from the hood release latch to the lever that operates the bonnet that is worn out. If it's 2001 or older crv, try pushing the latch forward while having someone moving the bonnet in an open and close motion. If it's a 2002 or later model....makes sure the release latch it in the pull position the have someone try to yank open the bonnet....it's better to repair a bent hook/lever than to cut the entire bonnet off.

Best of luck,
Romone.

Broken latch cable for bonnet


you don't have many options right now, here is what you can try.

if the cable broke on the dash end, try to removing the release latch from the dash and grab the remaining part of the cable with locking pliers.

if the cable broke at the hood latch end. you will need to pry the latch open in the same direction that the cable release operates.
this might be possible with a long flat screw driver with the grill in place. to accomplish this try finding photos of the latch online to see how the mechanism operates. there will be two levers one with the cable attached the other is the safety. the cable lever needs to be released for the hood to open

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!

Bonnet cable broken, how to open bonnet


The cable can break either at the left or right hand latch - if you are lucky as I was, the cable operating the left hand catch was the broken one, and was broken near the right hand latch release mechanism.
I was able to open the right hand latch with the bonnet release from inside thecar.
You then have to get a piece of fairly strong wire(I used a 2.8mm welding rod) and bend a fairly tight hook in one end. Using a torch so you can see the bonnet release cable, feed the wire in through the grill and hook the swage on the end of the cable that operated the left hand latch. A frim pull on the wire should then release the left hand latch.
Good luck!

Bonnet wont lock


Bonnet is held separately: mechanisms front left and front right. Suggest one latch only is operating/secure in your case; non-secured side will float and sit slightly proud of front wing line. Unscrew mechanism, detatch release cable and free-up "spring and pawl"; refit etc.
