There is a little handle inside the grille on the left just off center about 3/4 way up. pull it out and move it sideways.

    Just pull it out. It should actually pop out a little as you release the hood catch. A word, Keep that latch well lubricated or it tends to stick and also see that the spring that pops the hood up a little is oiled because that sticks too if it gets dry or rusted.

The inside hood release wire pulled out but it wont spring back


You need to replace the hood release mechanism. You can access the hood release from under the car - you'll need access to a pit though. Good luck

1997 Explorer Hood is not completly closed to


Sat on the hood and pulled the outside hood release lever. The air filter case was causing the air supply hose to the intake to hit on the bottom of the hood. Looking from the side of the fender, you could see that the air filter case and hose was above the fender causing the obstruction. Pulled air filter case away from fender monut 1/2 inch and had hood clearance.

Unable to open hood of Volvo


I have a '95 and the lever is beside the drivers left leg. You pull this lever and then go out and lift up the hood about an inch. A second lever shows out the front grill. You pull this second lever to release the safety catch so you can open it the rest of the way.

Battery is low, Hood release will not open the hood


You'll need two people for this fix:
Have one person sit in the car and be ready to pull the release lever. Have the other person outside in front of the hood. Count to three together, and on "three", have the person outside push DOWN on the hood as hard as they can while the other person simultaneously pulls the release lever. Keep the release lever pulled as the person outside lets go of the hood. This may take several attempts to get the timing right. In this situation, what is usually happening is that the spring-loaded hood is pushing up against the release catch hard enough to stop it from moving when the lever is pulled. Pressing down on the hood relieves this tension just long enough for the catch to let go.

Hood release cable isn't connected to interior hood release lever


Your going to have to use vice grips or pliers. Just pull hard till you hear the hood pop open or have a friend push down on the hood so you can pull in the hood cable easier to unlock the hood latch. Good luck and keep me posted.

My hood latch will not open from the inside lever is there another way to release the latch


Take a phillips head screw driver and take out the two screws holding the lever by the sterring wheel you would noramlly pull to pop the hood open. Pull towards you and the lever should slip out along with the cable attached. Take a pair of vise grips, clamp onto the cable itself and gently pull towards you. It would help if you had someone else trying to open the hood while you do this, but you can just check the hood after you pull the cable. That's how I got mine to open this morning. Now to see if the cable is adjustable and tighten it up so the lever does it's job.
