Hood latch The hood release wire either broke or was disconnected from the hood latch. Now the hood is closed, but can not be opened with the release. Is there another way of releasing the hood? I have tried to access it from under the car, but was unable to. I believe I could take the latch off, if I could get at it through the front grill, but it apparently connects from the inside, under the hood. Please advise
You can take a screwdriver through the grill and pry carefully to the left on the cable. The hood will pop. you can see the cable through the grill to the left of the hood catch. Apparently the part needed is about $20 but $400 labour to install. Sin ... 1993 Acura Legend

My hood latch is broken on my 2001 Subaru Outback. How do I manually opent the hood? I think my problem is the same. I have a 1997 Legacy--when I pop the hood, it releases, but I can't located the latch to open the hood. Usually it's a simple process, pop the hood, push the latch, hood open.
If the cable link to the latch is rusty or broken you have to take the front grid down. It's relatively easy. It's held there by plastic fasteners.\015\012Then reach for the latch with you hand, or the leftover broken cable. Pull it, it should releas ... 1997 Subaru Legacy

I own a 2001 Honda Accord. Saturday I had to open the truck to jump another car and found that the hood isn't latching securely. It latches enough to hold it shut but isn't closing all the way. In order for me to re-open the hood I have to press the release latch but I'm afraid to drive the car in the event the wind catches it and it blows open and I wreck. I'm not very mechanically inclined. Has anyone had this problem and can someone recommend step I can take to remedy the problem. Incid

How do i fix the hood latch on my 1999 Ford Explorer Sport? It used to be difficult(hard to pull) to use but it would open my hood. Sometimes I would even have to hit the hood with the palm of my hand to get it to open. Now the latch pulls like I think it would if working correctly but the hood won't budge.
You need to adjust the latch assy. Once you get it open, observe where it is striking the bar there will be a couple bolts you can loosen and move the latch. may take 2-3 attempys to get it right. Also lubricate with WD-40 ... 1999 Ford Explorer
2000 Chevrolet Blazer The hood release cable broke right where the cable goes into the lever. The little piece at the end of the cable is still in the lever. I tried to pull on the cable using a pliers to open the hood but it won't budge. The cable needs to be replaced but without the hood open, I can't get at it. I also tried to "trip" the latch on the hood itself, but I think the cable lock has to be released first in order to try to disengage the latch?
Grab the cable stub with a pair of vise grips, have someone bounce the front of the hood while pulling...most times that will free a balky latch. Then you can change the cable. ... 2000 Chevrolet Blazer

Hood latch I can't get my 2003 Chevy Venture van hood to close completely. It was opened at below zero temperature. Now the release mechanism covers the hood latch opening keeping it from closing.
Try spraying the latch mechanism with WD-40 or similar light oil and operating the release cable a number of times. Check the condition of the release cable if nothing happens. The latch itself may have a broken spring due to the low temps. ... 2004 Chevrolet Venture Passanger
