Hood Release not working in 2004 Kia Sorento.

Asked by Greg Aug 17, 2014 at 05:38 PM about the 2004 Kia Sorento LX 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I tried to open the hood on my wife's 2004 Kia Sorento, but when I pulled the hood
release lever in the cabin, the hood did not unlatch.  The nub is still connected to the
latch. When I used a pair of pliers, I was able to open the hood latch.  Afterwards, it
looked like there was a fair amount of slack in the cable.  When I searched online, I
saw "Take it to the body shop or dealer" as the recommended answer.  Any other
recommendations?

Many thanks!
