How can i open a hood laych that want let the hood cloes


Quite often the hood latch will not release for one of two reasons. Firstly, the latch is gummed up with old grease, and secondly the cable is kinked and does not release the latch. I is also possible that the latch is damaged, possibly at one time the hood was forced down at a slight angle which could damage the latch.
First, check the cable. Unhook the cable from the latch by pressing the latch back as far as possible with a tool and unhooking the cable. Let an assistant pull the hood release inside the vehicle and feel if the cable moves in freely and you can easily pull it back by hand. If not, replace the cable. Do NOT close the hood while you have the cable out!
Next, check the latch for free movement. If ally is well the only other problem is the bullet hook on the hood itself which may be either loose or adjusted in too far,

Hood won t close


Check out the cable connection between the latch and your internal latch control. Till you locate the problem I would suggest tying down the hood with some sort of strap so it does not pop open at speed.

Loose hood cord 95' civic, first I had to push the little latch that makes the hood shut completely with a screw driver now it won't even open (the hood) I pulled on the cable with pliers but no...


Just perform some checks please,
  • try to pull the hood release lever with its cable tightly pulled towards you.
  • that may tighten the loose cable so a release can happen
  • then pull out the hood piece hard, so the lock would release.
  • trimming is not a good idea, because it would be hard to set it back into the assembly.
  • try this, good luck. vote it!!

When I pull the hood release the hood dosnt pop, you can hear the wire moving under the hood but its not doing nothing.. how do I get it open?


Sounds like the latch is slightly out of adjustment. Have someone pull up on the hood edge while you release the hood from inside. Once open, spray some white lithium grease on both components of the hood latch. The latch strike bolts usually have slotted holes to allow for adjustment. If you loosen them slightly, and then close the hood, it should align itself, then open the hood carefuly and retighten the bolts.. IF you cannot get the hood open, chances are the cable is loose from the release, and you may have to remove part of the grille to access the underside of the latch to replace the cable.

Hood latch frozen in closed position


there should be a cable coming from the driver headlamp area and going acroos to the front center of the hood. where the latch is. spray penetrating oil on the latch at the front center of the hood.

here's a typical latch for a ford.

My 1993 toyota pickup's hood release wont open the hood. The cable still has tension on it but the inside release is loose & flops up & down.Any suggestions.Thank you!


Stretched or frayed cable, or possible mechanism seized or broken. Try looking up under hood in latch area, as someone pulls cable lever inside, & watch what happens. You may see a piece getting pulled , and be able to get to it with a screwdriver to assist it in going further to open the latch. Then inspect cable close for conditions I mentioned above. You may be able to tighten up the slack (adjust) once the hood is up, otherwise a new cable may be necessary. If worse comes to worse, you may have to grab that slack in the cable with a pair of vise grips & give a little more pull to get it unlatched. Make sure you lube the mechanism under hood too.
