What kind of Pontiac? Bonneville, Grand Am, Grand Prix, Firebird, Sunbird, Sunfire, Parisenne, etc? You probably have a bad latch, replace it I just ran across this on my car and all I had to do was check latch alignment and align the latch
If you can still see the wire, use pliers and pull, it should release the hood.
The Pontiac Grand Prix door latch has adjustments to move the latch up and down and in and out. Loosen the adjustment screws. Keep moving the latch in one direction or the other, until the door catches the latch.
If the door latch on a 1999 Chevrolet Blazer is broken on the car frame, a new latch might have to be welded in. The old door latch will have to be cut out with a torch. If the latch is broken on the door, a new door might be cheaper than welding in a new latch.
dodge truck broken hood latch
if you can at least pop the hud a little bit you can rich your hand under the hun and pull on the latch that should let you open the hud.
Use a set of pliers to pull the cable even if the plastic latch is broken...
With a pair of pliers pulling 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.
you can get to the latch through the grill
Reach under the front of your car between the radiator and the grill and pull the wire down. That will unhook your hood latch. Replace the cable.
i have a 1994 pnotiac sunbird that the handle broke off on the cable under the dash to open the hood. you can open the hood with a little patience and a fairly long screwdriver by releasing the latch under the hood. after this, on my sunbird, i just pulled the cable all the way out under the hood, tied it under the front of the car, and just pull it to release the switch. (thats only because i am too cheap and lazy to spend the money and time on a cable and install it.)
They are circuits that have an internal state.
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
How do you put the interior hood latch back on a 2005 Pontiac G6 mine fell off.
If the plastic part is broken, it can not be repaired. New latch is about $ 50.00.
Happened to me a few months ago. Remove the inside rear panel and pull the latch manually. Then you can unscrew the broken latch and replace it.
The latch is broken, not the cable. You can still get to the cable where it is attached to the latch in the foot-well of the car. Grab the cable with a small vice-grip (or similar) and pull. Note that it is very unlikely the cable will break -the latch typically breaks before the cable since the latch is made from plastic and the cable from steel wire.
Replace any broken parts or adjust latch assembly
It is very easy to repair a broken glove box latch. Once you've acquired the part, you will need to take the inner and outer panels of the door apart. The latch is attached to the outer panel of the door. It can be removed with a couple of screws.
Remove the back seat.
The best way to to try to find the cable and cut it and pull with pliers to open if the inside latch is broken. If not then you would have to go in from underneath or through the grill.
You can try unscrewing the grille and getting your hand or tools up to the latch.
Take the grill out and remove the bolts holding the latch on.
