Safety catch on hood wont release and hood wont re latch!


I would check to see if the hood release moves when the inside lever is pulled then pushed, if not the cable and latch mechanism may need lubrication or be broken.

C320 hood release handle won't pop the hood


I don't think there is a day that goes by in the shop where we don't get at least one vehicle that is doing this. Just use two people. One to pull the cable release and the other to slap the hood with their hand and tell it to cooperate. Usually, just a little "jarring" with the cable pulled will get it to pop up.

Hood release cable level inside of car works but wont release hood . how i get it to release to get hood to pop . so i can open hood


Have someone press down on the hood while you pull the cable.Most likely the latch is just sticking and needs a good shot of penetrating oil(WD40).May even try having them bump the hood while hold the latch.Good luck!

get a pair of good Vise Grip locking pliers, cut back the outer sheath off the cable inside car to expose the inner wire core of the hood release cable, clamp the vise grip locking pliers as hard as poss on the inner wire core, then have someone push down on the hood over the latch area center front of hood, pull the wire core and the hood should release.

you should be able to unscrew the hood latch release from the interior of the car and take the cable loose so you can pull the cable out more also once it is released put it back together and adjust the release from the front of the car should be three bolts.

Your cable anchor that holds the cable is loose or is pivoting causing your latch not to have full stroke. Hope this fixes your problem.

try getting a pair of pliers and gripping the cable on the back off the release and popping the bonnet,
if this is no good you may have to go to the dealer to get them to open the bonnet and replace the macanism
