How do I open the hood on a 1987 corvette when the hood latch doesn't work


I think that the outer cable is loose from the clip. you will have top devise a way of coming up in front of the ac condenser to push the latch sideways as some one pushes down on the bonnet to release the latch

How do you open a hood on 1976 corvette when cable is broke?


If the cable broke in the cabin, pull off the side panel in the footwell and use a pair of channel locks or good pliers to pull on the cable to get the hood open.

If it broke at the hood you'll probably need to lift the car and see how to get to the release by getting between the radiator, front end and grasping the latch.

1985 corvette, pulled the hood release and the diverside opened but not the passengers side so now i can't open the hood, how do i release the passenger side that is stuck


have someone push down on that part of the hood while you pull the release. Usually that frees it and it should be adjusted up so it will open again

How do you get the hood open if the hood latch wont open


You will need to reach under the top of your hood to see if you can locate the release cable. There should be one on either side of the hood. If you can reach the cable and manage to get one side or the other released, a repetitive bouncing up & down motion on the hood should cause the other side to release.

Alternatively, if you find that the cable has broken inside under the dash, you cat tru to expose the end of the inner cable in order to be able to grasp onto the cable with a pair of vice grips or other form of plyers. Pulling on the inner cable should release the hood latches.

Very close quarters, and tight tolerances.

Inop hood latch 1985 corvette


In the windshield wiper area on both sides of the car you will see a rubber plug about 1 inch in diameter. Use a flatblade screw driver (about 8-10 inches) and poke this plug out of its hole into the engine compartment (you can recover it later.) Insert your screwdriver through the hole until you find the release latch. Just push it until it releases.

How do you install a hood release cable in a 1999 300m


piece of cake for me, probably hell for you but here goes, open the hood, Disconnect the cable from the latch wich is located on your hood, then dislocate the other side of the cable from inside the vehicle (under the steering column, left side it should say hood release on the handle). Once this is acomplished look at the grommet openinig where the cable actually goes through the firewall, you must now determin if the cable can slide through easily, I usually attach the new cable to the old cable with electrical tape then I spray the whole cable down with WD-40, then I slide the cable out while pulling the new one in place, remove the tape/oldcable and begin to run the cable exactly like the old one, warning: if you route the cable wrong your cable can bind, which means that your going to close your hood and it wont open up, so you need to run it exactly the same, and when your done dont slam your hood shut. Take a screwdriver and manually lock your hood latch, then pull the handle and make sure it opens easily, if the latch passes the test you should be okay

Hood release cable is broken


Is there any part of the cable inside the cabin that you can pull with a pair of pliers? I suggest that you try that. You may need to disassemble it from the pull handle to make that work.

Your cable anchor that holds the cable is loose or is pivoting causing your latch not to have full stroke. Hope this fixes your problem.
