Question about 1996 Oldsmobile Eighty Eight
Posted by Anonymous on
Water could have the plastic guide's the release cable runs through or caused them to break limiting the pull on the release. If you look from underneath bumper with light you can see mechanism have someone pull release & hold why look to see whats not disengaging. Yo manually open from there.

it can be done thru the front of the grille , locate the cable coming from the latch mecanism , and cut partially thru the cable to gain access to the inner cable that does the opening of the latch.
it takes a little time an it will be a bit frustrating but it can be done ! I hope all goes well with plowing !

Push down on the hood where the latch is, the design is bad, very. If you push on it a few times that will excersice the bad design, and make the hood easier to open.

you have to let that hood release get warm enough so that it will pop open then put some motor oil on the mechanisim so it don't freeze up again.. good-luck ray

there is one two ways the first is use like that commercial deicer and spray it into the locking unit if it works and you do get the hood open spray the deicer into the lock again it should take care of it for good and if unsure spray a little WD40 in the latch. the second is more difficult and it requires heat not advisable to use though.
