There is only one way to do it short of getting a crowbar in there. Get some coat hangers, if you have a cordless drill or a drill motor, twist the hanger in the drill a bunch of times to stiffen up the wire, then put a hook on the end and go fishing, get a light, and go to the left, try to find the catch and trip, it can be done. It might take you an hour, but it is the only way. Once you get it open, you can find out what happened to the cable. Might have slipped. Some cars have a hidden button or hole that you just punch the wire in and it will pop open. You have to look real close for it. One way to do it is get a van just like yours next to it so you can see what you need to hit. Hope this helps.

How to open the hood on 05 mitsubishi lancer es after hood release cable broke on engine bay side.


Cut the outer hood release cable sheath (under the dash) back to expose the inner wire cable, then using a pair of locking pliers (Vise Grips) pull on the inner release cable while another person pushes down over the latch area of the hood to relieve pressure on the latch and make it easier to open, the hook is released lubricate the hood latch and hood latch striker with white Lithium Grease (AKA "Lubriplate")

How do i open the hood manually the latch is broken. i have a black covered cable wire and the silver part of the wire is showing. i pull the latch nothing happens to release the hood


OK, if the cable is the part that broke AND it broke at the handle, then you can use a pliers or vise grip to grab the end and pull on it to pop the hood, if it broke somewhere inside the cable, then you will need some needle nosed pliers to reach under the hood and grab it there. if it broke off at the hood latch itself, then you will need to get/ make a hook or pushing rod to engage the mechanism directly to release the latch and then replace the cable the latch looks like this:

How do I open the hood on my car if the release latch in the car breaks and it won't release when I pull on the cable under the kick panel with a pliers?


Depending upon how your Dodge was constructed, it may be necessary to access the latch from underneath. A straightened wire coat hanger is a useful substitute for the release cable. You will need a bright light source to find where to hook the hanger and pull. Someone will have to press down on the hood to release latch tension and allow release.

My hood latch cable broke,how can I get under my hood


Gentlemen-
Remove the turn signal from the Drivers Side and push a long screwdriver into the spot until you trigger the latch, this is a tedious chore at best but sooner or later you will trip the latch and the hood will open, then pull the cross over cable and unlatch the hood. Please replace the opening cables, both of them and build an EMERGENCY HOOD CABLE and run it down until you can reach it from the outside, under the car. GOOD LUCK!!!!

Hood latch cable is broken


Slide under the front of the car with the flashlight and pliers. Shine the light up towards the location of the hood latch and locate the latch release cable, Reach in with the pliers and grab the cable as close to the latch as possible. Once you have a firm grip on the cable, pull on it in the direction it naturally moves (i.e., towards the fender or down, depending on its routing). If the latch does not release, have a helper thump on the hood above the latch with his fist a few times until the latch releases and the hood opens. good-day !

I have a 99 a6 quattro and the hood won't open. I believe the problem is from the main release disconnecting from the latch under the hood. there is no tension on the lever and I already tried to...


This is a tough one, you will need to try and get a hold of a part of the cable going to latch and pull the complete cable with the housing and try to get hood open, another way is to locate the latch from under the car, you may need a skinny screwdriver that very long and try to push the latches release arm. this is going to be hard to do but is the only way i ever get hoods open with broken cables, hope this helps.

Hood release cable isn't connected to interior hood release lever


Your going to have to use vice grips or pliers. Just pull hard till you hear the hood pop open or have a friend push down on the hood so you can pull in the hood cable easier to unlock the hood latch. Good luck and keep me posted.

Hood release cable is broken


Is there any part of the cable inside the cabin that you can pull with a pair of pliers? I suggest that you try that. You may need to disassemble it from the pull handle to make that work.
