go to the wreckers get a new one
Replace it with a new or used one.
The hood release cable is held in place by a retaining nut on each end of the cable. Remove the retaining nuts and the cable placement retainers. Reverse the process to install the new hood release cable.
I always go to the body shop as they have to get hoods open a lot from wrecks.
the cable slid out of the latch and needs to be reconnected
Uh...I inserted my key in hood release mechanism to hold it open (like you would pull it with your hand) and then went up to the front of the car and pulled the hood free and then released it...That worked for me, hope it helps you too.
Get a new hood!
Get someone to hold the hood release lever while you pull up on the hood.
hing base has broke away from hood
The hood release is inside. Once you have pulled the release the hood opens backwards.
you fix it by not posting it under vw jetta
