SOURCE: Hood Won't Open, and Lever Broke

Hi viper852004 , the only way you can do this is to remove the front grills and then you will be able to see the 2 sprung bonnet pegs, you will need to loosen the adjusting nut where it screws into the hood and unscrew it until it becomes unattatched from the hood, do this for both pegs and then you should be able to release the hood to fix the problem. the pegs will need to be reinstalled before driving the car as the hood will not close, hope this is of some help, regards mark.

SOURCE: 99 toyota corrolla hood latch is broken. Can't

There is a rachet right below the hood that you can reach from radiator grill.
Take a long thin screw driver, reach it and turn that rachet.
You will hear the "click" sound and the hood will pop open.

use a long flat tip screw driver and a small hammer. have someone pull up on the hood after you pop it from the inside, then while they are holding the hood up use the screw driver and shove the hook that is above the latch bar. when you hit it you will be hitting it to the right

The cable for the hood latch in my 1972 VW Beetle seems to have snapped. How do I get the hood open to repair this?


at the handle you pull from inside the car, are you able to get to the cable that connects to the hood latch as you'll have to try to grab onto it with some pliers in order to pull on the cable. If you can't reach the cable from inside the car, you may be lucky and be able to get to it if you jack up the car as the cable should be running along the inside if your fenderwall. Hopefully you can get to the cable because of the the way your hood closes and there's no opening close enough to the latch for you to go through

Broken tab to hood release cable


Get a long screwdriver and try to release the secondary latch that way. Or if you have small hands reach up under the hood and pull the secondary latch toward the left.

06 beetle hood won't open


try having a second person wiggle and lift on hood while you pull on the release handle inside. most times this will open it but it also means the latch needs adjusted and it will keep doing the same till set right.
