It is very difficult and a tight fir but occasionally you can access the release by reaching under the front grill area.

How to open hood on 2005equinox latch is broken


The way to get it fixed is to take it to a Chevy dealer or a reputable mechanic. You can probably open the hood if YOU know how the latch works and can manipulate it properly with an appropriate tool, but that's temporary.

2010 Chevrolet 2500 Extended Van can't get hood open. Inside latch flips open, but still can't raise hood.


Have someone press down on the hood with their palms while you try and release it, if it does open lube the hood latch with white lithium grease AKA "Lubriplate".

I have a dead battery. I need to know how I can open the hood so I can get to the battery


If your cable is broken, not easy, so I assume you are pulling release and it is not opening hood, which is typical reason for not being able to open hood. You will need to identify where break is first, and this is the tough part, sometimes it is simply a stretched cable which happens before it snaps completely. You may have to trace cable to hood latch, you may have to cut cable to access inside wire and then use vise grips to release and then replace whole cable. FREE-PPV.com

Hood latch won't latch when closing


Raise hood,have some one go pull hood latch and you look at latch and see if it releases,if it doesn't then cable may need replacing,I would'nt completely shut hood cause you may not get back open,also check hood latches bolts and latch for something bent or broken.

Hood latch broken on Lexus RX330


It's not the cable if you can open the hood from inside. The mechanical safety latch is broken. If you can find one in a junkyard, get it, otherwise, it's off to the dealer to order it which will be more expensive than the junkyard version.

How to raise the hood on 96 Buick Park Avenue


I am trying to find someone with a Buick in our complex.It is large but it appears many are beachbound today.I may not be able to figure out something until later or tomorrow AM EST.In the mean time,you could try calling a dealer.I do not think the service center would be open today(unsure),but that is worth a try.If they tell you to bring it in then just hang up.I assume you want to self-repair or at least be able to open the hood until you can fix it.Is it a pressing issue?I will get back to your solution ASAP.

Pulled latch, but hood won't open on 97 dodge ram van


If you pull out on hood release & it feels like some resistance cable is not broken. Have someone pull release & hold pulled outward while you hit the front of the hood near grill, with palms of your hands. If it releases upward, release 2nd catch. Raise hood & locate plastic or rubber hood stops. There is one on each side of hood screwed into radiator core support. Raise each one an even full turn. This will allow it to release properly.

My hood latch cabel is broken on my 99 subaru outback how can I get the hood open if the cabel is broken.


I assume you mean the cable has broken off the handle? If so, you can locate the cable on the underside of the vehicle (trace it from the hood latch) and pull it with some pliers. If it has broken off the latch, you will need a long flathead to reach out from under the bumper and manually flip the bottom latch the cable is attached to.
