First off before you remove the cable take the hood lock off some people will leave it on and a gust of wind shuts hood then your stuck with no way of opening hood again

now with the hood release is simple once remove hood lock just move the slider to wear the wire is loose and pull it off then on the release pull switch disconnect there it looks like it has a ball on end once the removed just size the wire needed for hood release against other wire for size comparison and attach the way you took it off
i hope this helped you in your quest

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

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!!!!

My1999 chevy tahoe hood wont unlatch ! ive tried bumping the hood but nothing happens!

Sometimes it is best to go to a Salvage yard that lets you go inside their place or a Dealer selling cars. You need to see how the cable to your hood release is run.

If you are able to get inside a Salvage yard, you can get a used part to take home. You will be able to learn how to install your own by removing the Salvage part. If you break something taking off the used part, it will be a learning experience and you then can do yours without breaking something.

Look at how the grille is fitted. Look at the release mechanism. Look at the cruise control and throttle cable which may be confused with the hood release cable. Consider jacking up one side of the front frame which may help release a jammed hood release.

Sometimes a 3 foot long screwdriver is all you need, but knowing where to place it requires a trip to the Salvage yard or used car lot.

1998 GMC Jimmy hood release cable broken

Remove the cable from the latch and any hold downs or clamps. Push the rubber gromet through the fire wall into the car. Remove the handel assy. and pull
the cable assy.out through the fire wall. Now, if the
gromet can be removed. You can decide if you wan't
to put it back from under the dash, or under the hood.
Whatever is easiest for you, but if it can't, it has to go
back from under the dash. Hope this helps.
Good luck.

96 Intrepid broken hood cable,

It shouldn't be expensive as a new cable costs a couple of dollars at most, however you'll need to get the hood open before you can replace the cable. This will mean getting the car jacked up pretty high so you can get to the broken cable from beneath the car and cut off a piece of shroud, so you can release the hood lock by tugging on the cable itself. When that's done, tape the end of the new cable to the broken one that's been left on the inside of the car, and pull the new one through the opening on the firewall, connect it the same way as the old one, and to the hood latch aswell, and that should fixya! Hope that helps!
