I have an 01 Chevy blazer. The hood release cable broke off at the latch, leaving me unable to open the hood. HELP!

Asked by Oct 02, 2014 at 11:52 AM about the 2001 Chevrolet Blazer LS 4-Door 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Spring at latch end of cable broke off, and that end of cable has separated from latch itself.

1 Answer


Do you mean inside the engine compartment or under the dash? If under the dash, using a pair of vice grips, get a good grip on it and pull.. I know GM has a tool to reach the latch with the hood closed to open it if the cable is broken inside the engine compartment.
