Question about 2001 Honda Civic
We pulled the inside latch too hard to open the hood and it snapped right off. I bout a new hood wire, but have no idea how to install it (how to remove inside panelling, etc.) Can someone help me?
You will need some simple tools a set of metric sockets and a few screwdrivers remove the trim at the hood release lever, disconnect the cable there and then go under the hood and you should see the cable on the drivers side routed along the fender if not you may need to remove the drivers side wheel and the plastic wheel well liner, either way find how the cable is routed and pull it out from the passenger compartment thru the firewall and up to the hood latch, then you will see how it hooks into the hood latch and remove it from there. Make sure to take a screwdriver and pull the arm in the hood latch where the cable hooks in to verify that it moves back and forth freely and is not stuck, if it is you may need to remove the latch and clean and lube it until it is free or you can also buy a new latch i prefer to fix things as it saves everyone money ;) hope this helps and good luck -jeff
