What is the car and model number? Why do you think the bonnet (hood) - sorry I'm English! will not open? Is it mechanical - a broken release cable, or an electronic device that should release the bonnet? Without more information, I would suggest taking your car to a local garage.

Have someone pull on the opener while you push down then pull up on the hood. Once you have the hood open lubricate the latch assembly liberally.

How do you open hood for 2003 Toyota?

When you open the Drivers side door, look down and you will see a lever with the picture of a car with its hood up. Once you pull the lever the hood will slightly pop up, after that go to the front of the car and between the hood and the grille there will be a lever. Pull that lever and pull the hood up once the lever is as high as it can go. Now that your hood is open, put the hood support rod into its hole. Now you have an open hood.

Saturn Vue with the hood shut on the cableThe hood release has no tension How can you get it open?

I also had this problem... It means the cable stretched. What I had to do was pull the lever like you would opent the hood and then reach up behind the lever and grab the cable with a finger and pull on that. This will then pop the hood open. Once you have the hood open put a zip-tie or two on the end of the cable knub so that you can open the hood up like normal.

How can i open the hood on a focus?

That was tricky, you have to open the hood from front using your keys. Go to the front of the car, rotate the "FORD" label (located at the middle) upward. Behind it, there you can insert the key and tilt it to the left, then to the right, and the hood will pop up! That was a discovery! CHeers
