SOURCE: my 2003 misubisi eclipse hood

This happened to my 2003 mitsubishi Galant... We wound up having to use some cable cutters and cut the cable, then pull the cable out through one of the grill slots, pull off the cover/sheath around the cable, and then we were able to pull the cable and release the latch. If it is already broken and you're going to have to replace it, then you're not hurting anything to cut the cable. Good luck to you.

SOURCE: hood latch

Try spraying the latch mechanism with WD-40 or similar light oil and operating the release cable a number of times. Check the condition of the release cable if nothing happens. The latch itself may have a broken spring due to the low temps.

Hood on my 2003 z4 does not want to open? I pull the lever but does not do anything.


WD40 on the latch next time you get it open. You will have to pull the lever, press down on your hood and pull the lever again. Maybe you an an assistant can work together to get it open.

Lubrication is needed on the latch ... clean with WD40 then get some spray white grease from the Auto Parts store. That is what worked on my Chevy ...

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.

You would have to acess the hood latch from underneath the car up through the grill area. Also if the cable broke off flush, you can cut back the liner and use pliers on the exposed cable. A new cable would come with the liner and all anyway.
