1996 Deville Hood Release Handle Broken

Recommended Posts

I have a 1996 Deville and I'm having issues with popping my hood. I tried to pop the hood this evening to check the oil, but when I pulled the handle in the car on the driver's side, it didn't pop. It feels as though the handle itself isn't attached to whatever actually releases the hood. Has this ever happened to anybody else? If so, is it an expensive fix? How do I go about getting the hood popped if the handle isn't working properly? Thanks for your time and help everybody.

The cable probably pulled loose from the latch. See if you can get at it from the bottom. Once you get it opened and repaired, be sure to lube the latch to ease the pressure on it when pulling the cable. Mine was getting rather tight and I just lubed it. Made a big difference.
