Auto body shops are usually deft at opening doors which have been damaged in accidents. i would give one a call and ask them how much. this is not an unusual problem.

2002 Jeep liberty handle on glove compartment broke how do I open it


If the handle broke off completely, then you should be able to see what the handle pushed on or pulled on to open it, then you might be able to push on the latch mechanism with a screwdriver or pull what's left of the handle piece with a pair of needle nose pliers

Handle inside will not open the hood....


I'm going to tell you how( thinking the handle inside the car broke). This handle is made of plastic(replacement handle is a dealer item, pay to much for it), and the cable behind it usually breaks at the plastic connector. you need a pair of vise grips. attach the vice grips to the cable, and pull. It will release the hood. Now if the cable itself broke going to the hood, you will have to remove the grill( is held in place by screws). Remove the grill, and you will be able to pull the release pin on the hood latch, releasing the hood. hope this helps, and please rate, helpful or not

Where is hood latch on 99 Geo Tracker


It is in the glove compartment to keep theives from opening the hood and stealing the vehicle or engine parts. Since the vehicle is a Jeep-style convertible, the interior is not secure.

To open the hood do the following (I own a 1997)

open the glove box.
reach up and to the right and you will feel the handle.
Pull handle.

The hood will still look closed, so you have to lift up on the front of the hood and then push the internal release, whioch is in the middle of the front of the hood.

E-mail me w/ any questions @ cskalski@cox.net

Hood release broke


you are going to have to either remove the panneling to get at the cable and pull it with vise grip or try to get up inside the hood from the front and release the latch that way . either way is going to be tough to get to.
