How to get hood open? Hood latch broken! NEED HELP ASAP!!
So a couple of weeks back I found out that my hood latch cable was stretched so I had to cut it halfway and manually pull the cable to open the hood. Now the cable is all fugged up and not working and the hood is shut. Is there a way for me to get the hood open without the use of the cable at all???

Just get up under ur hood with a screwdriver and push the latch open with the screwdriver. It kinda takes a bit of patience, but once u do it once u'll be able to do it again no problem. I used to have to do it to Saturn Ions all the time cause their hood latch cables broke when it got cold outside.
just follow your hood latch cable and you'll see the "hook" that it is connected to on the latch. Then place the screwdriver in such a way that you will move it the same direction as the cable normally would. Bingo!
Another easy way to open the hood, assuming the cable is in its stock location, would be to remove the top of the fender liner, reach between the liner and the fender, grab the cable and yank it toward the rear of the car.
