SOURCE: Hood latch cable replacement ,

I have a broken cable on a 2002 focus. I now use a flat steel ruller and insert it between the bottom fins of the grill infront of the rad. Use a flashlight to see the latch mechanism where the cable pulls on for the first few attempts until you are use to finding the location. You don't want to jab the rad. I am currently scouring the wreckers for a replacement.

SOURCE: how do i replace a broken hood latch cable 2002 toyota camry

its more fiddly than hard before you start look st the cable where it joins the latch and start following it back toward the lever you may have to lift some floor mats etc and the cable should be secured with clips along the way if you think you can get it out take it with you when you go to buy the new 1 and make sure they are the same. if this helps please rate joe

SOURCE: How do I replace the starter on a 2000 Dodge Intrepid?

Before changing a starter, you need to do some testing. First, check that your battery is holding 12v or better. Next, check that there is 12v at the main connection on the starter. Then chjeck that with the key turned to "start" there is 12v at the small terminal on the starter.If not, check the relay that operates the starter.(it may be bad). If readings are good, and block ground and positive cable is connected and clean, replace starter.
To remove starter, disconnect positive cable from battery, unbolt starter, remove harness. Sometimes removal involves twisting unit and manuvering around stuff that's in the way. If you find that does not work, then remove whatever is keeping it from coming out. Yes: it comes out from underneath. (unless you see an obvious clear path to remove from above there is no set rule, just do what's easier) Replacement is the opposite of removal...no tricks. If your radio has an anti theft code, know it before you start or after you are finished it won't work. You will loose settings though.
good luck

SOURCE: 2000 Mitsubishi Eclipse hood latch cable is broken

one way would be to take off the bumber and pry it open. these cars should have back up plans but they dont. lol once you get it open try going to a junk yard and taking one out of another car. if not then buy one and get it put in professionally because its very difficult to do.

My 1998 Intrepid has a broken hood latch. When I pull on the inside latch, nothing happens. How can I open my hood, and fix this problem for the future ?


can you grab a piece of the cable from under dash?if so pull it and see if it will open.
if not you will have to try to get at latch from under car.
if you cant get at it find a reasonably priced body shop they are pros at getting stuff like that open
then get a new cable or pull handle or latch whichever it needs and replace it

My hood release cable on my 95 intrepid broke just wondering were is the release locaded so i can open my hood and hows an easy way to fix that.


Usually the handle breaks off the cable, you should be able to use some vise grips to grab a hold of the cable and pull it to open the hood. To repair it the cable assembly will have to be replaced. If not you will have to gain access to the latch which is located in the front center of the hood and using a screw driver or something similar push the lever to release the latch.

96 Intrepid broken hood cable,


It shouldn't be expensive as a new cable costs a couple of dollars at most, however you'll need to get the hood open before you can replace the cable. This will mean getting the car jacked up pretty high so you can get to the broken cable from beneath the car and cut off a piece of shroud, so you can release the hood lock by tugging on the cable itself. When that's done, tape the end of the new cable to the broken one that's been left on the inside of the car, and pull the new one through the opening on the firewall, connect it the same way as the old one, and to the hood latch aswell, and that should fixya! Hope that helps!

Hood release broke


you are going to have to either remove the panneling to get at the cable and pull it with vise grip or try to get up inside the hood from the front and release the latch that way . either way is going to be tough to get to.

Hood Latch Wire ???


I had the same problem on mine. You can get to the latch from underneath right behind the bumper. You will need a long screw driver or pry bar to push the tab that the cable connects to. On mine I had to have someone push down on the hood slightly while I pushed the tab.
