SOURCE: inside latch broke off 2002 dodge ram 2500 pu.how to open hood?

im taking a guess that the inside latch your refering to is the latch inside the cab of the truck, if so inspect the cable, can you see the metal cable inside the black housing, if you do take a vice grips and grab onto tightly and pull, this should release the mechinism same as if you pulled the latch, otherwise if you can see the cable within, crawl under the front of the truck, between the radiator and grill, reach up to the latch and disconect the cable that comes from the cab, it will be the only cable coming to the latch assembly, as you remove it, it kind of just clips in place, you will see what it pulls to release the latch, grab a screw drived and lightly force the piece over to pop the hood, i know it can be frustrating from experience, took me a while the first time, and they sure dont give you much room to work with, but a little patience will pay off with this , wish you the best of luck!

SOURCE: hood release wont latch

This maybe a problem of the hood being misaligned. in order to remedy this you will have to adjust the 4 bolts on the hinges holding the hood in place and the latch little by little. But first try a penetrating oil on the latch assembly and look for anything out of place.

My 99 dodge pu seat belts are stuck in.will they come out?what **** designed this? bill


If the belt release will not release the belt and you want to replace the belt itself there are some bolts that need to come out at all points of restraint and then replace. You can crack open the belt case (where it latches) and force a manual release on the belt. Then replace the case and the guts so it does not lock again. Good luck.

Unable to open my tailgate on a 1993 Dodge RAM 2500 using the standard embedded handle release


You will have to remove the inner panel for the gate (look at the panel from within the bed) to gain access to the latch mechanism. This can be done with the gate up. From there you will be able to see what the problem is. I suspect that your handle has either come out of adjust or the linkage has worn badly. Usually this is a broken piece such as the handle attachment where the linkage attaches to the handle.

replace hood release cable or lubricate the cable to free it up.
In the mean time, push the cable back in and see if that helps.

Pulled latch, but hood won't open on 97 dodge ram van


If you pull out on hood release & it feels like some resistance cable is not broken. Have someone pull release & hold pulled outward while you hit the front of the hood near grill, with palms of your hands. If it releases upward, release 2nd catch. Raise hood & locate plastic or rubber hood stops. There is one on each side of hood screwed into radiator core support. Raise each one an even full turn. This will allow it to release properly.

How do i open hood on my 96 dodge 2500 when hood release is broken


Where did the cable break? Is it still visible? You can look where the hood release was and if the cable is still there you can use pliers to pull it so it will pop your hood. try that

or
lay on your back look up under the grill area of the truck, there is a mechanisim with a claw on it grab ahold of the cable going into the mech. once its open i suggest buying a new 1 or tie rope to a shorter piece of cable
