You have to take off the kick panel,under the dash and then use a pair of pliers to pull cable.OR if cable broken at front end (its a *****)you have to use a long driver to undo the spring catch.

Try to get a long pair of pliers to the hood latch. If that does not work try pulling on the entire cable housing.

How do you open the bonnet on a fiat punto elx 1.2 2001 as my bonnet cable has snapped


You should be able to get at it from under the vehicle if you have small enough arms and hands. The cable is at the top of the engine bay and connects to what looks like a curled piece of wire(which is the release catch). It is barely visible and diffycult to operate. Someone pressing down on the front centre of the hood (directly above the catch mechanism) will make things easier for the unfortunate individual that has to stick his head under the vehicle. It can be done without the need for tools. When you do get it open and need to replace the cable do not just pull the old cable out. It is a nightmare to replace without a draw wire. Fasten a piece of string or wire at least 2 meters(6-7 feet) to the old cable before removing it. Then remove the end of the string from the old cable and connect it to the new one before drawing the new cable into place using the draw wire. Some insulation tape over the end of the cable where it joins to the draw wire(to prevent it catching on something) will ease matters.

If you can pull the grill insert (look for retaining screws) you can reach the underside of the cable hood release and open it with a screwdriver.

Hood wont open on 1999 dodge durango


The cable to the hood is most likely broken. The hood can be opened from underneath by pulling the cable and replacement is not terribly difficult once the hood is open.

I have a 2001 eclipse and the cable to my hood snapped i would just take it to a garage but the battery died so now i have no power and i cant get the hood open. Is there any way to get that latch open?


Try getting under the front of the car with a strong light. Try to see if you can see the cable going into the latch that holds the hood shut.

If you can get ahold of the cable with your hand or something to hold the cable. Give the cable a firm pull towards the left fender ( driver's side) and that should pop the hood open. Good Luck!

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
