Open the hood as far as you can then use a flat-blade screwdriver to pust the latch. Just remember to always carry the tool and a flashlight to locate the latch.

Need more information. Is the latch behind the grill broken? Or is it the latch operated from inside the vehicle? If it's the latter you can remove the latch mechanism and pull on the cable using pliers or vise grips.

Use a set of pliers to pull the cable even if the plastic latch is broken...

my 2001 does the same thing. its the spring in the latch release. I have to have my wife sit in the car and keep popping the hood release while i push in and up and down on the hood right where the latch release is over and over and eventually it gives. Once you get the hang of it you can do it by yourself.

There is a screwdriver slot behind the grill that will operate the hood latch. Look for it on the driver's side.

my latch is broken on my Honda and all i did was put a bungy cord thru the loop in the hood and pull it to the tow hitch on the bottom of the car and it works fine

You may pull the wire with a pair of plyers near the hood latch. To access it you need to reach behind the grille of the car and pull the exposed wire near the latch with the plyers

i would probably use a screwdriver to nudge where the latch used to be to pop it open

Take the grill out and remove the bolts holding the latch on.

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.

The only way i can think of would be to remove your bumper so you can get to the latch, and either unbolt the latch from the core support or unbolt it from the hood...

Opening the hood on a 2001 Pontiac Grand Am is very easy to do. The hood is opened by pulling on the hood release latch inside the car on the drivers side. After the latch is pulled the hood will release. The hood is then opened by pulling the second release under the hood.

Use a screwdriver to release the hood latch through the front grille. Take a look at the hood latch on another car to get an idea of how they work.

The latch is broken or out of adjustment.

Have 1 person pull on cord with pliers and 2nd person use fist to pound on hood where hood latch is and/or use screwdriver to pry open hood.

To open the hood on a 1993 Pontiac Grand Prix after the cables have worn our by the seat release, have someone hold the lever up. Another person presses down ?æthe hood near the latches. Then clean and lubricate the latch mechanism.?æ?æ?æ

I assume you have tried opening it by pulling the hood release lever. Determine the cause of the hood not opening. If the release handle for the hood doesn't retract back into position after you pull it, it's likely that the cable leading to the latch is broken. If the release handle retracts as usual and you can feel it trying to release the latch, it may be the latch itself that is broken. It is more common for the latch to be broken or jammed than for the cable to be broken. Rule out the hood being jammed shut before you proceed as if the latch is broken. Have another person stand in front of the car and pull up on the hood while you stay inside the car and pull on the hood release cable. This may help unjam the hood if that is the problem. If this still doesn't help the hood lift up, you can proceed as if the latch unit is broken. Shine a flashlight through the front grill of the car to locate the latch unit. Once you can see it, use a screwdriver to go through the front grill and manipulate the screwdriver in different ways, trying to open the latch. The latch is spring loaded, so it may take pressure to open the latch manually. Be careful to stay away from the condenser for the air conditioning unit--the screwdriver could puncture a hole in it if you don't keep it only on the latch assembly.
