The lever to pop the trunk on your 1996 Dodge Stratus ES no longer works how do you fix this?

I would look at the trunk latch for a small lever that disables the remote release when you have the car valet parked. I'm not sure about Stratus, but many cars I have worked on have this feature. Have someone operate the lever in the car while you watch what the cable is doing at the latch. If that is the problem, you should be able to see it.

How do you release the rear liftgate latch on a 1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo. It is unlocked but pulling the handle will not release the latch that holds it closed. It is not frozen or rusted?

The lever that connects the handle to latch has come loose. I had this happen to me out on a job site and all my tools were in the back. Jeep has no interior latch for the liftgate so you have to jimmy the lock to open it, then reconnect the lever which has an attached side clip holding it on. I think you can get to this lever by taking the tag lights out. It's been a few years since this happened to me. Once you reconnect the lever, you can secure it by wrapping some electrical tape around the lever ends or use a tie wire. I also connected a stiff wire to the latch lever and ran it out of the rear glass molding on the inside and twisted a loop on the end. This creates a permanent lever to pull and open the rear from the inside. A better way that doesnt damage the exterior is to simply pop off the plastic interior panel of the liftgate and just take the disconnected link in hand and firmly pull it to open the gate. At the same time you can reconnect it. From the factory there is a retainer clip that holds the link in place. It isn't uncommon for these to come off or break due to harsh use or when excessive force is applied to the handle on the exterior of the lift gate.

Where is the lever that you pull to open the hood on a 1990 Mercedes 300?

interior lever first, on inside dash end/drivers side - orange;red lever...hood should 'pop' up. secondly, lever iside grill at centerleft; tiny one fingerd lever - most all are broken and missing. A forward pull is needed of the latch - may need a coathanger to initially open the hood if lever is broken, hook onto latch inside and pull forward while lightly pressing down on hood.....look inside with a flashlight.... There are repair kits cheap at Auto haus,Arizona, but found that a short piece of rope tucked back in after opening. If you cant find a tiny lever mid-way down on the left of center of your grill, its missing.

How do you pop the hood of an 83 VW Rabbit GTI from the front?

Well, fact is, you shouldn't pop the hood from the front. You should pop it from the lever on the driver's side if at all possible. But if the cable is broken and you have no other choice: The latch is dead center of the car, just above the VW logo in the grill. You should see where the cable is or was hooked into the latch that holds the hood down. Get a pair of pliers, grab onto this lever and pull it to the right (like what the cable would do if you pulled the lever) and the latch should release.
