First, try smacking the hood at one of the front corners while someone else pulls the release handle. or even after you've pulled on it. if that works, once open, adjust and lubricate the hood latch assembly. if it still won't open, and it's the cable and not the latch you'll have to replace it anyway, so instead of removing the grill, cut the cable behind the pull lever under the dash where you can reach it. then skin the outer cable insulation away from the actual steel cable exposing an inch or two of it. then holding the insulation and plastic housing with pliers, grab the steel cable itself with pliers and pull it to open the hood. then replace the cable. the further you can reach up under the panel the better your chances of getting past the broken part of the cable and avoid removing the grill. you might also be able to gain access from up under the car if you're lucky.

Hood wont open


It may be that your hood release cable that runs from the hood release is broken. You'r going to have to try and manually release the hood latch by tripping the release through the grill with something like a long screwdriver. You should be able to identify the latch trigger by following the cable to end.
You might also try having push down on the hood while another person tries to trip the latch if the cable isn't broken, but just stuck.

Cherokee 1998 hood latch won't open.cable frozen ?


frozen or broken. try a good whack on front on hood while someone pulls latch, see if you can free it up. no luck? try pounding at driver's side near the windshield while someone pulls latch. no luck? You can crawl under front with a screwdriver and reach up and try to release the latch manually. push the little lever the cable attaches to over towards driver's side. good luck. When open, see if cable operates latch: if good spray it liberally with penetrant. If your cable is broken, just get a new one or visit a salvage yard. The hood latch can be adjusted a small amount.

My hood latch cabel is broken on my 99 subaru outback how can I get the hood open if the cabel is broken.


I assume you mean the cable has broken off the handle? If so, you can locate the cable on the underside of the vehicle (trace it from the hood latch) and pull it with some pliers. If it has broken off the latch, you will need a long flathead to reach out from under the bumper and manually flip the bottom latch the cable is attached to.

My hood latch is broken on my 2001 Subaru Outback. How do I manually opent the hood? I think my problem is the same. I have a 1997 Legacy--when I pop the hood, it releases, but I can't located the latch...


If the cable link to the latch is rusty or broken you have to take the front grid down. It's relatively easy. It's held there by plastic fasteners. Then reach for the latch with you hand, or the leftover broken cable. Pull it, it should release the first latch, than you just have to get to the security latch, like you usually do to open the hood.
