Having problems with your 1995 Eagle Vision ?

The pull cable is not opening the hood and is broke. How can I manually open it?

Answers :

I had this same issue with my 94 vision as often happens when you have to open the hood a lot to add oil and such as the car ages and begins to leak or burn oil or other fluids. (or both as with mine.) I ended up cutting back the plastic housing around the pull cable with a utility (razor) blade to expose the cable and use a pair of vise-grips (needle-nose works best for the "wrapping/bracing of the wire.") to grab the wire very tightly about 1/3 to 1/2 of an inch or more in front (depends on your vise grip choice) of where it's exposed by your cut. BEFORE YOU PULL, (this is what the space u leave is for..) wrap the cable around the end of the needle-nose on the vise grip to brace it and keep it from pulling out of the grips as quite a bit of "pull" is required to move this cable as it ages. Once you have released the latch, (you can feel and hear it give just like when you used to pull the lever) you will need to hold the cable and move your grips up to the black casing or apply a second vise grips snug to the casing to keep the latch open if your hood no longer pops up automatically like mine. If that is the case, don't forget to release your vise grips to allow the latch to close before you close the hood or it will open/pop up while driving which could be bad...lol.
