SOURCE: HP Pavilion dv2120us Notebook PC battery release latch

My battery latch got stuck in the open position after replacing the battery on HP's DV 6300 series. The battery was thus stuck. I used the 'screwdriver' technique but with a rounded end kitchen knife not an actual screwdriver to remove the battery. It is important to push the knife down a little into the groove at the outer long edge of the battery and pry that outer edge up. AFTER DOING THIS THEN GOING TO REPLACE THE BATTERY I REALIZED THE LATCH PROBLEM OCCURRED BECAUSE I HAD PUSHED THE BATTERY LATCH TO THE OPEN POSITION TO REPLACE THE BATTERY. THIS IS WHAT JAMS IT. TO REPLACE THE BATTERY 'DON'T TOUCH THE LATCH AT ALL'. LEAVE THE LATCH IN THE CLOSED POSITION AND REPLACING THE BATTERY WILL SET THE LATCH IN THE CORRECT CLOSED POSITION, READY TO BE SLID TO OPEN POSITION ONLY TO DO THE ACTUAL BATTERY REMOVAL.

SOURCE: Broken Hood Release

Hello There

In short no there isn't, however it's most likely your plastic release lever is broken and not the metal cable, you need to open the cover over the release lever, there will be a cable you can pull using a gripper and it will release the bonnet, you can easily replace the plastic llever and it's reletively cheap.

Hope this helps, please don't forget to rate me.

SOURCE: 1999 GMC Sierra truck tailgate release latches are

If you remove the ring around the handle you will get a better view of the two rods that connect the handle to the outter latches.The ring just snaps in.I think a flat head screw driver from the bottom works the best.Once you have access to the rods you can push the inward twords each other to pop the gate.If the are broken out twords the tail lights then a thin flat head in the gap betwen the tail lights and tail gate should be able to push the spring loaded latches in to pop the gate,but you may need to borrow a extra set of hands.Well hope this helps.

SOURCE: Kia Sedona seat stuck

Got it, with the help and eyes of my wife. The rear latch releases as the seat back is lowered. This release is ALMOST seat back down (about 3 inches above the seat bottom). As the seat back lowers, apply constant lift on the rear latch, and it will release as the seat back lowers. Hard-won knowledge - I think I invented some bad words in the process.

Boot will not open on key fob xtype jag


it may be the boot latch switch is faulty the gem module that controles this funtion may think the boot is already open, or the latch release solenoid/motor may have failed, or a broken wire. around the boot hinge, have you tried your spare remote to eliminate that? if you cant get in your boot at all you will have to remove the rear seats to gain access to the boot area and then remove the latch cover and open manually so you can diagnose the fault, hope this helps

Drivers seat won't latch


Will it latch if you push the release handle down, you know opposite of trying to get it to release? It might be a broken or dislodged retaining spring that pulls downward pressure on the release handle. If this is not the problem then the teeth on the gear that the release handle engage are possibly worn out.

I need new seat belt latches. Dog chewed plastic off; belts won't lock.


Junk yard. Google "junk yard" and your location and you should get some hits. Or I like car-part.com. Once you get them, you should be able to access the bolt that holds them in place by moving the seat all the way forward (assuming that we are talking about front seats). There should be a plastic cover that "pops" off with a little influence. Remove bolt, install new/used part.

Third row seat latchs are broken and seats stuck in upright possition


There is a plug (cap) that goes into the pivot point of the release handle for the third row seats. If that plug is missing, you can stick a penny in there temporarily to enable the release and fold the seats down. The replacement part is called a "release handle plug" -- I found it at moparpartsovestock.com, part number 1ED82BD1AA for under $4.

Looking for driver seat removal instruction so the broken bracket may be welded. It appears this is not an isolated occurance. Nisson wants 1000-1300 to repair.


Usually you pry off or remove any seat bolt plastic covers,
to get at the bolt heads

Then the nuts are welded into the steel floor pan

As you said,silver braze,braze or tig weld what is broken

Stay away from a dealer after the warrantee runs out

Must disconnect the battery, in case the SRS System (air bag)
is involved under the seat & leave it off until your all back together
& all wires are reconnected

I want to fold down my back seat on my 1999 Chevy Cavalier but the hook/corded loop came off and i don't know how to get my back seat down ...any solutions???


You will probably have to disassemble the rear seat to fix the latch. The lower seat cusion has latches that can be pushed in with a flat-blade screwdriver. If you pull up on the seat a little, you can see them. They are made of white plastic. There is a button on the front of them that will release the lower cusion. I usually use a flat-blade screwdriver to push on the latch buttons because they can be really hard to push by hand. Once the seat cusion is out, you can access the bolts that hold the seat back assembly in. You can remove these bolts and remove the entire seat back assembly.. Once the seat back is loose, you will have to reach around the seat assembly to remove the push-clips that hold the trunk-side carpet to the back side of the seat. You will then be able to work on the seats to repair the latch. (pull cords)

Cannot put top up on 1987 allante the latch is locked in and icannot open the latch on the pull down motor


There's a switch ( kinda same shape, color & operation method as your power seat switches) behind driver's seat near the 2 Boot/Top 'release' pull tabs,, it's mounted on the "roof" of the open compartment area behind the seats. Slide your hand along there til you feel it. It recycles the pull-down motor up & down & should release the top. Also try in the trunck, there's 2 hard plastic strings with loops at end,, pull & see if it releases it.

I can't get my convertible top to go up or down, it is stuck half way. Is there a manual release for it?


The convertible top motor and release lever are in the luggage compartment.
From the Bentley manual, the following general procedure is suggested in order to close the top in an emergency situation.
Main motor. To release the top linkage from the motor, lift the left corner of the rear seat to access emergency release handle.
It is then possible to push the top manually to a near closed position. In case of the semi-automatic top, simply attach and lock the front latches.
Front latches. Once the fully automatic convertible top has been released from the motor and manually pushed to near-closure, emergency latching of the top is possible by using the S-shaped hex key provided in the emergency tool kit(attached to the trunk lid underside).
First, remove the the plastic cover over the latch motor in the front bow of the convertible top.
Next, use the hex key from the tool box to crank the front latches shut.
