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.

2002 Chevrolet Blazer hood latch will not release. How do I get the hood to open?


If the cable isn't broken, have someone push down on the hood when the release is pulled, it should release. If it does, you should apply some lube to the latch mechinism to keep it freely working. If the cable is broken, you reach in behind the grille with a small hooked tool and find the cable going to the latch, hook the cable and pull it out 'this will take quite a bit of force' so you can grab it, you then remove the plastic housing and grab the steel cable with a pliers or other tool and from the latch side- pull hard to release the latch. you should then will have to replace the cable later. Also lube the latch.

95 cherokee, the hood wont open with pull cable, the cable is not broken, but the latch seems to be broken. how to open?


try having someone pull the release and someone else give a quick bounce to the leading edge of the hood. If it opens, use plenty of solvent on the latch mechanism and work it till it's free.

My hood release cable on my 95 intrepid broke just wondering were is the release locaded so i can open my hood and hows an easy way to fix that.


Usually the handle breaks off the cable, you should be able to use some vise grips to grab a hold of the cable and pull it to open the hood. To repair it the cable assembly will have to be replaced. If not you will have to gain access to the latch which is located in the front center of the hood and using a screw driver or something similar push the lever to release the latch.

2000 Chevy Blazer with Broken Hood Release. How do I open the hood


can you reach the cable itself?,or is it broke at the hood latch?IF its not broken at the outside latch, try to follow the cable,un-hook it from the handle and pull on the wire cable to open it.IF its broken at the latch itself,you are going to have to reach the latch through the grille and try to pull the lever the cable connects to.That part is no fun at all..!!

Broken hood


look under the car or behind the grill there should be a black cable running to the under side of hood.if you ''skin'' the black plastic back you will find a metal wire.now take two pairs of pliers.one to hold the black casing and one to pull the wire.that should open hood.once hood is open you'll see where cable attaches to hood latch.that cable needs replacing.
