I have a 99 Chevy Blazer LS which refuses to release the Hood. I hear a
click but the hood won't release from the primary position. If I push the
hood back down I hear a click to lock it but if I release it again I cannot
pull it up to the secondary position so that I cna use the secondary release
Any ideas on how to get this latch unstuck? I sprayed CRC into the latch
mechanism but no joy with that either.
Thanks for any help!
push down on the hood, have someone else pull the cable and let the hood
up. Should open. Once open spray it with the CRC and work it with the
cable or a screwdriver then spray some white lithium into it to keep it
That's a real bitch, but try this: have one person pull the latch
release arm and you do a few thunks on the hood with your fist...lube up
the hood latch when ya gits it open
Had to take off half the front end of a stinking Honda to get it's hood
Thanks for all the replys.
Prior to writing this post I had sprayed the latch with CRC. When I went
back down to try again it worked fine. Having someone pull the latch while
I tried to open the hood didn't work. That was my first though.
