SOURCE: hood release

I had the same problem with WD-40 and man power I over came it. Chances are your latch is rusting / corroded or gummed up. What I did was to lift the passenger side up a little not to much or you will bend the hood, follow the bar as far as you can and spray the release with WD-40. Have someone pull the cable and try moving the release bar on the passengers side back and forth. It may take a little doing but it should eventually release. You know the cable isn't broken because it does release the passengers side, when you finally get the hood open make sure you spray down all three of the latches.

HALLO
TRY WITH SOME HARD WIRE (WELDING WIRE) ABOUT 3MM THICK.
MAKE HOOK ON ONE END (5MM), AND IN THE MIDDLE, JUST UNDER THE HOOD,BETWIN HOOD AND FRONT GRILL, IN THE GAP YOU WILL SEE HOOD LOCK. IN THIS LOCK YOU WILL SEE SMAL HOLE. GO INSIDE WITH THE WIRE AND TURN IT (TRY LEFT OR RIGHT (DONT REMEMBER)), BUT HOOD WILL OPEN. HEPENED TO ME TOO TWO YEARS AGO.

SOURCE: The hood will not release to open. I released the

So I gather that the release inside the car has release the hood's primary catch, but the T handle is not release the secondary catch to allow the hood to fully open.

If this is the case, take some lithium grease or WD-40 (lithium grease is much better and lasts much longer) and spray it onto the catch assembly.

Try pulling on the T handle some more after a few minutes of the grease soaking in and see of that releases.

If that doesn't work, then take a long flat screw driver and press it against the catch gently hit the screw driver with a hammer (you should be trying to push the catch towards the driver's side of the car)
You may need someone to be pulling on the T handle as you hit the catch with a hammer. I actually had to do this with a jetta before....

SOURCE: 2001 Jetta tdi hood release broken how do i get it open

on the left side of the drivers side their is a panel with the hood release Pull off the cover of the hood release and you will see a cable connected to the hood release. take some pliers and give it a good pull.
if you dont hear a click, have someone pull the hood up while you pull on the hood release cable. next their will be little space to take off the grille for easier acces. take off the grille carefully by prying it off carefully on each side. push the grill up and pull it towards you going up then down.
Now all you have to do is stick a flathead screwdriver or philips. and on the bottom of the hood release on the hood stick the screwdriver under the release and push the screw driver down while pushing the hood up.

Can't open the hood by pulling hood release


Cable is stretched/sprung. Access hood release panel and pull cable with channel locks.. or worse, something is stuck in the latch mechanism under hood.
See repair rep at Ford in any case.

The hood on my 99 sunfire is closed shut and won't


The cable is probably broken and not connected to the latch. There are two latches, a primary which the cable is connected, and the secondary or safety.
You'll have to try to access the latch from under the car going up between the bumper and the radiator. You may need a body shop to do it.

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.

I can't get my hood to open. The internal release works but the latch under the hood won't release. How can I get the hood open


While someone is pulling the thing inside the cars have someone outside the push down in the center front (where the latch is underneath) down. You may have to kind of push and release quickly. If the cable is still attached there it should release.

The interior release is going to be on the left side of the steering wheel. After releasing that you need to find the outside catch which should be located center of the hood.
