How do i open the hood manually the latch is broken. i have a black covered cable wire and the silver part of the wire is showing. i pull the latch nothing happens to release the hood


OK, if the cable is the part that broke AND it broke at the handle, then you can use a pliers or vise grip to grab the end and pull on it to pop the hood, if it broke somewhere inside the cable, then you will need some needle nosed pliers to reach under the hood and grab it there. if it broke off at the hood latch itself, then you will need to get/ make a hook or pushing rod to engage the mechanism directly to release the latch and then replace the cable the latch looks like this:

Hood wont open 2005 cavalier


Is the cable broke? If not, try having someone push up and down on the hood (Gently) while you pull the hood release. If it does open, get out the WD-40 and lube the latch and cable.
If not or the cable is broken, you might try "fishing" a coat hangar wire with a loop in one end between the grill and radiator to hook the hood release latch where the cable attaches. Pull the wire and it MAY open. Good Luck... ....

The inside latch that opens the hood is brook. i cant open thehood


The easiest solution would be to find the end of the cable at the release handle. If it's the handle that broke, the cable end may still be there. If so, grab it with a pair of pliers, and pull. Make sure your are pulling on the inside cable, not the black outer casing.

The other option is to crawl under the front bumper and see if you can get your hand on the release arm. The cable is attached to it. Have a helper push down slightly on the hood, over the latch. That will help reduce the spring tension on the part you need to pull on.

I need to open the hood of my 96 Oldmobile Cutlass Supreme, but my hood release latch is broken. How can I open the hood with out it?


There's a few ways. Either break your bumper grill, which I don't like to do to access the hood cable at the latch to pull, or cut the cable where it connects the the lever inside the car. Strip the plastic coating enough to where you can get a pliers or vise grip on the center metal cable to tug. If the latch under the hood itself is seized, try spraying some WD-40 at it and letting it sit for a few minutes. Sometimes it takes pulling up on the hood and pulling on the cable at the same time. Once open, spray more on the latch.

There is a latch with a hood release cable connected to it. It can be reached from underneath, between the grill and radiator, or you can reach it through the grill.
