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 4 Door LS 4WD

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

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.
