Check with the dealer's parts dept, usually there is a place somewhere on the grill that you can stick a long screwdriver into, to activate the latch. Or if you have a friend with a similar model, open the hood and watch while he pulls the inside release, look at what moves and where. You should be able to figure it out.

How do you open the hood on 85 cad Seville cable broke


Sometimes not easy... Is cable broke at inside handle or at latch under hood? If you can get hold of broken cable inside with some pliers, just pull cable. That usually works. But not sure where your break is. Getting to latch to release is what can be difficult. Also having an extra hand (someone out side tapping on hood or pulling up slightly) while tring to pull cable with pliers

The cable broke that releases the hood on my 1995 Honda Accord and now the release latch inside the foot well does not work and the hood does not open. Is there an emergency way to open the hood? I have a...


There is no emergency latch. The best way to get it open is to remove the cable from the release latch in the footwell, then use a pair of pliers to pull the cable and open the hood. You might even have to strip the cable covering back a little to get to the cable.

Handle inside will not open the hood....


I'm going to tell you how( thinking the handle inside the car broke). This handle is made of plastic(replacement handle is a dealer item, pay to much for it), and the cable behind it usually breaks at the plastic connector. you need a pair of vise grips. attach the vice grips to the cable, and pull. It will release the hood. Now if the cable itself broke going to the hood, you will have to remove the grill( is held in place by screws). Remove the grill, and you will be able to pull the release pin on the hood latch, releasing the hood. hope this helps, and please rate, helpful or not

Hood release broke


you are going to have to either remove the panneling to get at the cable and pull it with vise grip or try to get up inside the hood from the front and release the latch that way . either way is going to be tough to get to.
