1. Remove bumper.
2. Pop off the grills. Easy to reach everything with the bumper off.
3. Take off the plastic fan cover.
4. Slide the latch cover off the bottom and reach up inside and pull the latch release.

1996 BMW 740il bonnet will not open on driver's side, have replaced cable for the bonnet, help


REMOVE THE FRONT KIDNEY EMBLEM, GET A DENTAL HOOK FROM HARBOR FREIGHT, AND TUG ON THE OPEN SPOT WHERE YOU CAN SEE THE ACTUAL CABLE, THIS WILL ACTIVATE THE LATCH TO OPEN. GO TO THE JUNKYARD TO PRACTICE ON AN ALREADY OPEN ONE SO YOU KNOW WHERE IT IS.

1999 BMW 528i interior hood release cable missing how do I open hood


The hood catch is so well inclosed, you won't get the hood open manually. No tricks here. There has to be a release inside the car. If the handle is just missing, and you can get to the release cable, just pull it with a pair of pliers.

Broken hood release larch on '01 Pontiac Grand Am.


You can try going up from the bottom behind the bumper cover, or thru the grille opening. You may be able to pull the hood latch with a hook such as a coat hanger or pry it with a crowbar.
You may have to have the bumper cover removed to gain access.

Broken hood release cable. How can I open the hood manually?


The cable is held in place by a metal bracket. If it cam off the bracket it won't work.

Look behind the part you pull and you will see the wire and the outer part of the cable. The end of the outer part of the cable has a groove neer the end. This groove slides onto a slot that is located just behind the pull latch. Once you see it it will make since on how it should go.

You can also grab the outer part of the cable and pull the inner wire. If you can pull the wire almost out, then it is broken. But the chances of that are very low.
