SOURCE: Where is hood latch on 99 Geo Tracker

It is in the glove compartment to keep theives from opening the hood and stealing the vehicle or engine parts. Since the vehicle is a Jeep-style convertible, the interior is not secure.

To open the hood do the following (I own a 1997)

open the glove box.
reach up and to the right and you will feel the handle.
Pull handle.

The hood will still look closed, so you have to lift up on the front of the hood and then push the internal release, whioch is in the middle of the front of the hood.

SOURCE: hood wont open on 1999 dodge durango

The cable has snapped. The easy bit is replacing it, the hard bit is getting the bonnet open to do so. Take it to a good local garage, or even to ford to open the hood, tell them you can't open the hood and say nothing. Let them open the hood for you, and close it slowly, just one click, so it it still latched, then change the cable.

How do you open a hood on a 1991 Geo Metro wih a broben cable release

try to trace the cable. and then with hands pull it .
or cut it and skin it back and pull the center wire with vise grips.
takes a deft touch to that skin thing, brute force.
getting to the latch and unbolting it from the front, would be hard.
only the trunk monkey can do that.

How many belts on a 1995 geo metro?

engine, accessories drive belts.?
that depends on options.
why not open hood and see what is there.?
it also depends on which engine option too. (size)
why do you ask, (read a book on belt changes as a service step)
or did something die, like Alternator, or A.C, got the A.C option?
we need the context, the engine and options on car.

99 geo metro fuse box location??

It it's a 1.0 L engine, there are 3. Under the hood, you will find 2 next to your battery, while the other one is under your dashboard/steering wheel. This one is harder to get to. I had to lay on my back to reach it!

Can Geo Metro parts be used to fix a Chevrolet Metro?

The hood will be the same, but the bumper will be different: the Geo Metro had its turn signals in the bumper and the Chevy Metro had them in with the headlights. The bumpers also look different, however their mounts may be the same. If your sister wants fer car to look the same you should find a bumper from a 1998-2001 Chevy Metro.
