G'day

Im currently working on a friends 92 camry sedan, when i pulled the bonnet release latch, there was a clunk but the bonnet did not release, now the latch is loose. i assume the latch or cable has broken. Does anybody know any tricks to release the bonnet without using the latch?


Cheers, Al

yes- but then you have to remove the grill to get to the latch from the inside...

lol mines the same way sometimes it will pop by itself, others i will have to have somone pull that latch while i pull up on the hood. Lol the best surefire method....remove the latch and get hood pins. Not sure fire method go to your local junkyard...get latch...replace latch...yay.

Thanks for the help, yeah even with another person lifting the bonnet it wont come, i assume the cable is broken so i guess the only way is to get at the mechanism...ie. remove the grill.

cheers, wimpy
