If you shine a flashlight into the front grille, you might be able locate a small (pea-sized) c-shaped hook in the latch. If you can see it, place a screwdriver in there and pull firmly to the right. This is a manual release mechanism that will trip the hood open, in lieu of the cable.

IF the Cable is broken on the hood latch, I used a long, flat head screwdriver. Locate the eyelet under the hood, and push it with the screwdriver. It's difficult, but it works. Replace the hood latch before you close the hood. Good zluck.

Your 1999 ford explorer hood wont open?

the hood latch is not releasing this could be due to a stuck/broken hood latch or something wrong with the release mechanism (broken/stuck cable, handle came off of cable, etc...) use screwdriver(s) through your grille to pull the lever that would be pulled from the cable. best thing to do is get a new hood latch from local parts store and look at it to figure out how it works so you know just what to press/pull/activate on the car -R.

How do you open the hood of 1998 ford explorer with broken hood latch?

Use a flashlight. If you look from the passenger side of center from the grill, you can see a spring that is attached to a brass looking mechanism that is inside the latch. Push on the brass colored mechanism with a flathead screwdriver toward the driver-side. POP!
