If you can still see the wire, use pliers and pull, it should release the hood.

How do you get the hood up if the hood release cable is broken?

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.


How do you open hood on 89 Winnebago chieftain?

If the hood release does not work, the front grill comes off by removing 4-5 small screws. That allows access to the latch so it can be opened by pulling the cable or moving the latch itself. My hood release works when it wants to. It is very moody.

How do you open the hood of a 1991 Chevy Corsica when the hood latch cable breaks off in your hand?

If the cable itself is still there get a pair of Vise Grip pliers and you should be able to pull it. If the cable is broken up inside the housing then you will need to remove the grill insert. I have a 92 Corsica and there were 4 screws that held this item in place. Reach up and move the lever that the small cable is attached and the hood should pop up as normal.


How do you pop the hood of a 1991 jeep Cherokee Laredo hood latch cable will not open it?

They do seem to bind up over time! At the latch handle, under the dash on the driver's side, see if it can be moved far enough to get tools in. Hesitate to suggest vise-grips, because you may well break the plastic handle. The right-angle end of a small pry-bar is about right, if it is notched deeply enough. After you get it open, you might see if you can spray lubricant into the cable, as well as lubricate the moving parts of the latch, underhood.

How do you open a bonnet on a Fiat Palio Go 2006 when the latch is broken?

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.


How do you open a hood with a broken latch cable on a 1997 Dodge Intrepid?

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.)

How can you open your 2002 Kia Spectra hood if the cable release is broken?

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.

How do you open the hood on a 94 geo with a broken hood latch cable?

If it is just the inside handle broken off you can pull the cable with a pair of pliers. If it is in the middle, you should be able to reach up from underneath and cut the cable and then pull the inside cable. If the latch end has pulled off, you may be able to trip the latch from underneath, or take the grill out and unbolt the latch.
