I had a similar problem on a 93 Regal. I took the plastic housing off where the hood release originally was and was able to get a grip on the release cable. The cable goes out of the cabin near the steering column so you might be able to back track from that point. I would spring for a new cable though as it is a real pain opening the hood with the pliers. I taped the new cable to the old one and snaked thru the engine compartment pretty easily. Good luck.

How do you get the hood up on a Buick LeSabre when it will not release to the safety catch?

That depends on a few things. If the cable has broken at the release handle, you can use Vice Grips or pliers to grab the end of the cable and pull. If the hood is stuck down you can have a helper pull up on the hood while you work the release in the car. If the cable has broken at the latch consult a pro for help. If you get a helper to hold the the hood release open on the inside and tap lightly, with the side of your fist, on the front of your hood just above the grill. This will usually work if the cable is not broken.

How do you replace an interior door handle on a 1950 Buick?

Very interesting vehicle, one of my favorites. There is a special tool that slides in behind the door handle to release the "horseshoe" type clip that holds the handle in place. It is like a thin pair of pliers that has a cutout to fit over this clip. After gripping the clip twist the pliers to release and the handle will slid off the splines.

Broken hood release cable on 1990 Buick Century how do you get the hood open?

You can take the front grill off, with some T20 screws on the front of the car. You will see the hood release cable, and the mechanism that it attaches to. Just look at it, and you will be able to figure out how to open it from there.

How can you release the hood of a 1994 Buick LeSabre from the front of the car if the hood release cable is broken?

The best way to do this is to cut the plastic on the cable housing and then you can pull it with a pair of pliers. If its just the handle broken off the cable inside the car you can pull it there without any problems otherwise you are going to have to find a place to cut it you can reach without to much problem. To release that go under your car in the front and reach up and locate the cable if there is one and follow it to the end there is a lever that you need to pull toward the drivers door if there is no cable then find that same lever by touch in the middle of your hood you will know what it feels like byits design it should feel like a small extended metal lever
