i have a Chevy s-10 1990 and the hood wont release, and the latch is broke. what should i do
You can take the front grill off, with some T20 screws on the front of the car. You will see the hood release cable, and the mechanism that it attaches to. Just look at it, and you will be able to figure out how to open it from there.
a pry bar
BMW Hoods slide forward, open from the back and raise up vertical . ;)
Pull the hood release
go through the grill and use a heavy duty screwdriver to pry back the latch
The hood release is inside. Once you have pulled the release the hood opens backwards.
my 1998 mountaineer hood release will not work. Is there another way to open it?
The easiest way to open up your hood is to have someone pull the hood release lever for you. While they are pulling on the lever, you can then pull up on the hood.
To open the hood on the 2000 Beetle if the hood release lever is broken inside the car, you can remove the glove compartment of the vehicle and find the release cable inside the dashboard. Pull the cable to open the hood. You will then need to replace the hood release lever.?æ
The hood on a 1995 BMW is opened by locating the hood release below and to the left of the steering column. It is pulled outward to release the hood and the latch under the lip of the hood is lifted to open the hood.
