Depends where the cable is broken. At very worst you must get under the front of the car behind the bumper reaching up to the hood latch and releasing it.

If the cable isn't broken then you shouldn't have any issues opening the hood...

Unless the car has been wrecked, the usual problem is a stuck or broken hood release cable. If you go under the dash you can usually get hold of the end. Otherwise the cable can be reached under the engine compartment.

The hood from your 1994 Cadillac Deville will not fit on to the 1994 Fleetwood. The 1994 Fleetwood hood is larger than the Deville hood.

You would have to pop the hood of the car. If the handle is broken to the hood, you must locate the piece of the wire that it was connected to and pull on it with a pair of pliers.

I had this problem with my 1990 sedan deville: I put the car on jack stands and located the hood release cable which runs thru the fire wall to the hood latch and is located on the right hand side of the car when facing the grill. From underneath the car I gave the cable a hard jerk and it released the hood.There is no other way to open the hood

Open the door with your key. Now pull the hood latch to open the hood.

You actually will have to reach under the bumper to take out the bolts on the grille and remove it. Then, you will have to bend a hanger into a hook to reach around the back of the lock and grab the loop in which the hood cable connects.

If you can find the cable under the hood, or if you can get to the cable where it's broken, a pair of vise-grips and a healthy pull should open it up.

If the hood cable is broken on a Geo Prizm, the only option is to open the hood from underneath the vehicle. It is best to put the car up on a hoist and use a pole to trip the hood latch.

Hood release cable has connector nuts on both ends of the cable. Loosen the connector nuts. Remove the cable retainers. The cable will come off and can be replaced with a new hood release 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.

If the cable release is broken for the hood on a 2002 Kia Spectra, a person could crawl under the car and see if they can locate the broken part of the cable. If it is still attached to the hood, they could pull it to trip the hood latch. Otherwise, the car will have to be put on a hoist, and a long pole used to trip the hood latch.
