Question about Toyota RAV4
Hi moiramarydow, if the hood release cable is not broken, you could get a helper to push down on the hood at front center over the latch to relieve pressure of latch while you pull the hood release , if it opens ,grease it good.......if the cable i mentioned is broken ,you will need a new one but in the meantime to open it i have done this: look into the front of the grille with a brite light around hood latch of course, and locate the release, you can I D it by the small cable coming from it, trip the latch to open, in other words you have to do what that cable does by hand, use any tool you can to reach it and get leverage on it,, being careful not damage any thing in the process like the radiator or condensor. good luck . OK!!
