I had the same problem with my '93 Geo Metro. I would have to push down on the hood in front where the catch is while someone tried to trip the lever. Good Luck!

We just bought a 1989 geo tracker. It had a oil leak someone has started to fix. However we're not sure all the parts are under the hood. My husband thinks something is missing. How can i find out what it...

I might look on or and search for one that someone is trying to sell. Tell them you're interested in seeing what condition the engine bay is in. Ask for some pictures.

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 @

Do you have a user's manual? It may show it in there. It should be in the grill about in the middle of the car or to one side a little. Get a flashlight and look in the grill and you will find it. Where you want someone to push on the hood would be directly in the middle about 4-8" from the front of the hood. If you plan on running this car into the ground, you may want to consider buying a Haynes Repair Manual from Auto Zone. Best $20-25 you can spend. It's a great tool to have. Good Luck!
