SOURCE: bypassing hood cable override system to get under my hood

Also helps to clean and oil the latching mechanism. On my Blazer (01) you'd pull the handle by the brake all the way back, hear a slight click up under the hood and nothing happened. Pound on the hood above the latch a few times and it'd pop open. I cleaned and oiled it... works fine now

SOURCE: HOOD RELEASE CABLE BROKE, HOW

You can try to get to the hood latch from under the front of the car. It won't be easy but with something long you may be able to pop the latch.

SOURCE: can not open hood

Will start simple:
If the handle is broken inside car, find cable end pull with pliers, the handle is replaceable by itself from dealer or junkyard.

If you are pulling handle and hood will not pop up, have a helper pull up on front of hood and lightly bump down on hood near the latch with their hand or fist(careful not to dent) while you pull on handle and it should popup, now lube it before you close it, the hood may then need to be opened and closed several times to work lube into latch(this sticking is common when latch system is not lubricated regularly).

If the before mentioned does not work...the cable could be detached at latch which is usually caused by: lack of lubrication and/or trying to open hood in winter after going through carwash.
Now things get trickier and you're best finding a shop that can raise the car up so that they can jimmy it from below.

SOURCE: Broken tab to hood release cable

Get a long screwdriver and try to release the secondary latch that way. Or if you have small hands reach up under the hood and pull the secondary latch toward the left.

well if it is broke on inside, you can peel back a little on cable, then pull on the cable with vise grips to open hood. if that does not work for you. you can use a coat hanger and go through grill to grab latch and open hood.

The cable broke which opens the hood in my 1994 Lexus LS400. What is the best way (least expensive) to replace this cable? Thanks


if it broke with hood open its not going to be hard to replace it.first you go to auto parts place or dealership buy the cable feed it through the floor board to the hood where cable goes. if hood cable broke with hood down its going to be hard to see or get to the hood open mechanism.through the radiator open under neath the front bumper.

buy a new hood cable and have it ready for the repair. take a pair of pliers or vise-grips and grip the the cable for the hood release. As long as the cable is intact then pull on it and the hood will release. If you pull it and it does'nt release you may need someone to help and pull up on the hood while you pull on the cable.

Hood latch cable is broke and hood is shut how do i open


This is the hard case for any hood broke the cable, if the broken part is under neith your dash board, near the handle, probably you can manage to pull the broke cable and try to open it. but if the broken part in the front hood, probably you have to take to the garage to fix it.

I had two cases like this when I had my Union 76 Services Station in N. Hollywood 80s, it is a headache problem.
