How to open the hood when the hood release is not working.


Pull the release and have someone hit the hood with there hand in the middle of the hood, by the latch/front. Then adjust the latch upwards. If the cable is broke then go from the bottom and push the release left or right to release. Follow the cable.

The hood lever is stuck inside the car. Tried pushing hood done etc. stuck in an outback town in NT. Need to change the dead battery!


Push hood back down hard,then pull on
hood release hard again.If not work,trace wire
inside as far as you can and get grips or pliers
and pul from as far up the line as you can.If it
opens as it should,you can easily unattache wire
from pull handle put a knot in wire,this will shorten it
so easier to undo next time.Infact you might try that first.
If none work which I doubt,get push to start and drive
to garage.LUCK

Hood latch stuck freestar


check that the cable is still attached to the latch lever... if not use pliers to pull the cable... sometimes the latch gets stuck... have someone push down on the hood while you pull the latch.

Hood release inside my 2000 ford focus popped to release but I can not open the hood of the car? what should I do?


Might just be stuck. Have someone pull the release as you FIRMLY pound on the front of the hood in the middle with your fist (NOT A HAMMER ! ! ! !).

If that works and it opens, get some WD40 and spray the latch and cable, lever, etc... and then work the release lever before closing it again. If the cable has broken....... it is very difficult to release without some automotive knowledge. I'm betting it is just stuck...


Good Luck.

Hood on my 1995 Toyota Tercel won't open


Someone just successfully helped me with a similar problem. IF the cable is Not broken, ie: still taunt when one pulls the hood release lever in the car, then the latch under the hood is simply stuck. Try this. Have someone bounce/press down on the front center of the hood where the latch is located to relieve spring tension. At the same time have someone pull the Hood Release lever inside the car. This may pop open the front hood. Then after the hood opens spray WD40 on the hood latch to rid the rust which likely is the cause of the problem. BTW...don't know what you mean about the Oil Light comes on. You don't need the engine turned on to open up the front hood, at least not on my model (2door sedan).

Opening hood on 1992 Ford Explorer


I had the same problem with my hood. I had that handy wire hanging out of the front but it didn't want to release the hood. The cable was jammed and the hood had to be manually released via ratchet. After you can get the hood open maneuver the cable under the plastic piece where the hood meets the grill to stop this from happening again.
