Open Question

Cannot open my Daewoo Lanos hood open. possibly a broken hood latch. does not open from the in-car, under-steering-wheel lever (connected to cable). other manual lever under hood works ok, but both need to work to open hood. How can I get my hood open??? thanks for your time.

SOURCE: hood latch won't release

This has happened to me several times, this will take two people, but all you need to do is have one person pull the hood release, while person number 2 pushes down on the hood, and then pulls up...that ought to do the trick

SOURCE: Need to open hood manually from outside

it can be done thru the front of the grille , locate the cable coming from the latch mecanism , and cut partially thru the cable to gain access to the inner cable that does the opening of the latch.

it takes a little time an it will be a bit frustrating but it can be done ! I hope all goes well with plowing !

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: Broken Hood Release

Hello There

In short no there isn't, however it's most likely your plastic release lever is broken and not the metal cable, you need to open the cover over the release lever, there will be a cable you can pull using a gripper and it will release the bonnet, you can easily replace the plastic llever and it's reletively cheap.

Hope this helps, please don't forget to rate me.

SOURCE: 1995 isuzu rodeo hood release broken under the hood

if the grille screws are accessable remove the grille which should give you access to the underside of the lock, you may need a screwdriver to push the lever aside to release the hood
Hope this helps

How can I open the hood of a '97 Jeep Cherokee when the rod that pops open the latch is disconnected under the hood?


some times pulling the cable sheath from the side as person 2 pulls lever gets it open (not snapped cable, but stretched)
well , that can be hard. (snapped)
its just a cable. so the tech looks at that.
he sees if the center wire in said cable is broken. is it?
i remove it from lever and pull just it (center) open now?
no, we find it pulls out, and is say 2 foot long. 1/2 normal.
he may see , yes, it is then asks self where exactly
he finds it broken say in the middle. so gains access to that point
and cuts the cable there there , and skins back the sheath,
then pulls the good side center wire, and opens the latch.
now he replaces the cable.
and calibrates it per those words in the FSM.

it has 3 fail modes.
  1. lever broken
  2. cable broken or streatched
  3. or latch broken or needs calibration (adjusted to spec).

the only magic here is the yanking cable at mid span.
while BOB pulls lever. (bob is common mechanics name,a joke?)
LOL

Hood latch


Replace the hood release cable as it is probably jammed and not allowing the hood latch to return to the correct position

Chrysler crossfire, hood open lever under steering wheel will not work, can i open it manually with tools?


the cable has probably broken, you have to get to the latch from underneath the car, its hard to get to, and with any luck the cable broke someplace other than right at the latch, if so you can use vice grips and grab the cable and pull like crazy to unlatch it

Hello, I'm trying to open the hood of my 1991 nissan maxima. I have pulled on the lever to open, however the lever will not move. I do not want to pull it too hard without damaging it. Please help!!!


It is 20, and 10 years past its designed life, this stuff happens. You need to figure out whether the latch cable has broken or the latch itself is bad. If the cable is bad, you should be able to reach up under the dash, find the cable coming from the back of the lever and pull it out from the inside. If it comes freely, then you know it is broken but do NOT pull it all the way out. If however the cable is good but the latch is broken you are going to have to get at the latch via under the bumper or through the grille, and unbolt it or the male prong on the hood. Some extensions and swivels will come in handy for your socket set. When you get the latch or prong loose the hood will open

There is also a remote possibility that the spring which pops the hood up when you pull the lever has broken and the hood is actually unlatched so long as the lever is pulled. Check this by having someone pull and hold the lever from inside while you try to open the hood and release the secondary.

How do i open the hood.


there should be a lever that is on the bottom edge of dash that is under the steering wheel along the trim. if the handle is broken you can use pliers to grab the cable and pull it to get the hood to realse. if you found all that and i seems to work ok then when pulling the release lever have a friend hit or shake the hood to get it to pop up a little so that you can open it all the way.

Manual transmision don't shfit


Check all your linkage goin from your shift lever to your transmission. You might have messed it up. prolly will have to remove the center console to access it and find where it connects under the hood. look for broken cables or binding linkage.
