How to: Open your hood when the cable is broken

Postby Daniel » Tue Apr 29, 2008 4:23 pm

Drill a 5/32" dia hole at one end of a piece of wood of 1/4"x 1/2"x 10".
Engage a 5/32"x 4" nail in the hole.
Get this tool through the grille and the nail in the lock.
With a large screwdriver push the 5/32" nail against the release lever.

Test it before the cable break ;) .

Hood opened for clarity.

The goal!

:lol: HIS RELEASE CABLE BROKE! :lol:

... it's not exactly in the right spot but he's showing how to get into the engine when the cable is broken or the latch gets stuck. ;)

Should rename this thread, 'How to: Get started on stealing your local lanos.'

:lol:

It is helpful though, for people who find themselves stuck.

My damn cable has broke twice! So this could be usefull to me someday. Luckily both times it broke we found out as we put it on a lift so it was an easy fix.
