Depending on where it snaps, if theres any way to get some vise grips on the broken cable do so. If not you will have to take out all the bolts for the front clip you can get to and bend it up till you can get a long screwdriver (flat) to pop the latch.

There are two ways to do this. First, you can break a few vanes out of the grill, and use a long screw driver to operate the lever that the cable pulls, or you can lay on your back underneath the vehicle, and using a long screwdriver operate the same lever. The latter is usually very difficult.

Your 95 camaro hood release is broken how do you open the hood?

use the key...manualy I didnt get a hood key with my 93.(re*&$%) You will have no choice but to go underneath the car and try to reach the latch. Somtimes you can see where the cable attaches. Use a screwdriver,pliers, or whatever to activate the lever. Move the lever in the same direction as the cable would and the hood should release.

How do you repair the hood latch for the 1991 Mercedes 190E 2.6 the handle in the car that opens the hood does not work it does not pop the hood?

The hood is openned by a cable that links the handle in the car the hood latch. If the cable is broken or detached then the hood will not open. The cable has two parts, an outer covering and the actual cable that pulls on the hood latch when the inside handle is pulled, you need to check the inside handle to see if the cable is still attached to the handle, also you need to check the hood latch to see if that end is still attached to the hood latch. If either is disconnected the you will need to get appropriate hardware(nuts,bolts etc) to attach it back but if the cable is broken it has to be replaced complete. This you might or might not be able to do depending on you skill and proficiency with tools.

How do you open the hood on a 1992 Chevy Camaro if the hood release cable broke?

This is tough. I had this problem once when my cable was sticking. What I had to do was take a really slender flat blade screwdriver, crawl on my back under the car and reach straight up past the radiator. There's a spot where you can fish the screwdriver in and twist and the hood will pop. I did it once, and I know that the directions aren't that hot, but I got it to work. Wish I could help more. Mike I looked at my Camaro and the cable runs behind the high beam on driver side might be able to get access there if not broke to close to the latch. Other answer is good also . good luck.
