Question about 2002 Chrysler PT Cruiser
Hood stuck, broken latch, cable cord sticking out
Posted by Anonymous on
I just used a flat head screwdriver and went in through the grill... one opening from top. Vertically placed screwdriver just behind where latch cable enters hood latch. (Looks like a "J" shape metal part). I placed minimal pressure pushing handle toward passenger side and hood released right away. Just did this 5 min ago after interior latch release broke off.

It may be that your hood release cable that runs from the hood release is broken. You'r going to have to try and manually release the hood latch by tripping the release through the grill with something like a long screwdriver. You should be able to identify the latch trigger by following the cable to end.
You might also try having push down on the hood while another person tries to trip the latch if the cable isn't broken, but just stuck.
