2010 Chevrolet 2500 Extended Van can't get hood open. Inside latch flips open, but still can't raise hood.


Have someone press down on the hood with their palms while you try and release it, if it does open lube the hood latch with white lithium grease AKA "Lubriplate".

Hood wont release from interior release. cable is attached to release handle. its on a 1999 passat


try pressing down on edge of the hood as someone pulls the release handle. Or shake hood up and down while pulling the release cable. The cable may have broken at the latch end.

I can't open the hood on my 96 Mercury Grand Marquis. The pull handle works fine but moves so easily I suspect it is no longer connected to the latch.


Sounds like the cable is broken. Try having someone put pressure on the hood while you pull on the hood handle in your vehicle. If this doesn't work you'll have to have your helper bang on the hood while you pull the handle. It might also be a spring broken in the hood latch either first or secondary latch. The latch is usually bolted to the front of the radiator facing the grill. If you can get something in there to release the first latch you can move the hook with you fingers. Be careful prying it open. You don't want to dent the hood.

2000 Chevy Blazer with Broken Hood Release. How do I open the hood


can you reach the cable itself?,or is it broke at the hood latch?IF its not broken at the outside latch, try to follow the cable,un-hook it from the handle and pull on the wire cable to open it.IF its broken at the latch itself,you are going to have to reach the latch through the grille and try to pull the lever the cable connects to.That part is no fun at all..!!

The hood latch cable is broken or disconnected, how do I get the hood open to repair


if you can't pull cable under dash, need to access from under front of car. Try to pull cable or remove 2 screws holding latch on.

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.
