SOURCE: hood release cable is broken

Is there any part of the cable inside the cabin that you can pull with a pair of pliers? I suggest that you try that. You may need to disassemble it from the pull handle to make that work.

SOURCE: hood release will not release hood cable is not broken

the outer cable may have come loose near the lock, if the grille screws are accessable remove the grille and you will have access to the underside of the lock, you may need a screwdriver to push the lock lever aside to unlock the bonnet

My 1989 Volvo 240 gl hood won't open cable doesn't pop hood, what can i do to open it


You have 2 choices. You can try to grab the cable through the grill, cut it then see if the wire can then be pulled to release the hood.
Another option is to go from underneath with big screwdriver to move the latch thus releasing the hood latch. Not sure if you can get access to it on this vehicle easily. try a flashlight and from under the car reach way up into the latch area.

Where can i get the hood release cable fixed or can it be fixed? will it cost


Im taking a chance at answering this question . Because if you don't work on cars or other things like that you likely won't understand what im about to tell you . There is a problem with the luberation at the hood latch and likely you can't get that open at the moumant . This is basicly a disign problem . You have the release inside the vehicle that you pull on to open the hood there is a cable attached to it . The cable runs to the hood release mechinsam and it tends to streach if the release mechinsam is not moveing freely .The way to open the hood at this point is to take a pair of vice grips and clamp them on the cable from the inside of the vehicle to the cable on the release cable be carful not to damage the cable but it has to be tight enough to pull the cable and at the same time have some one else push down on the hood over the latch mechinsam and the hood should pop so you can open it . THEN lubercate the latch with white lithium greese this will help in a big way but you may have to shorten the cable travel because the cable is streched and is now to long . You can do this by useing cable tys on the jacket of the the cable at the hood latch between the cable and the jacket to take up the space from the streach of the cable. S o all you need to do is stand the jacket of the cable off from the hood latch mechinsam to jacket didn't streach the cable did and free up the striker on the hood latch its sticking and caused this whole problem

Econoline hood release not releasing. Latch at front of hood moves just fine. I can pull the hood release under the dash a couple inches, but it is not releasing anything at the hood end. What can I do to...


first, try smacking the hood at one of the front corners while someone else pulls the release handle. or even after you've pulled on it. if that works, once open, adjust and lubricate the hood latch assembly. if it still won't open, and it's the cable and not the latch you'll have to replace it anyway, so instead of removing the grill, cut the cable behind the pull lever under the dash where you can reach it. then skin the outer cable insulation away from the actual steel cable exposing an inch or two of it. then holding the insulation and plastic housing with pliers, grab the steel cable itself with pliers and pull it to open the hood. then replace the cable. the further you can reach up under the panel the better your chances of getting past the broken part of the cable and avoid removing the grill. you might also be able to gain access from up under the car if you're lucky.

I pulled the hood lever in the car to open the hood and it wont open. How do I get to it to open the hood? I have a 1989 cadillac fleetwood.


You pull the lever while someone else pulls up on the hood. Most of the time that works as long as the cable is ok. If this works make sure you lubrucate the latch so it will continue to operate correctly.

Hood cable


You are going to have to either raise the car up on a lift, or get on your back on the ground. . In front, right behind the front grille, remove a any rubber flaps blocking you from reaching ALL THE WAY UP to the hood latch, and MANUALLY release the hood. If not familiar wit latch layout might be tricky, but doable. I've done it hundreds of times. Hope this helps
