General Technical & Electrical General technical and also electrical discussion for the Ford Ranger that does not fit in any kind of other sub-forum.
I simply went out to install my brand-new corners and also my hood release won"t occupational. I pull all I want yet the hood doesn"t pop up. Is there any type of other way to open the hood?
once an old vehicle hood wont come open typically you can hit the top of the hood on each side of the latch simoultaneously and ultimately it will certainly pop
damaged cable probably? Can you gain under the truck and also pull it manually? I dont also recognize if you can reach it or where its run..yet its an alternative...
Mine has the same difficulty. What is is is the corner supports (the rubber shims on the corners) most likely damaged and also fell through the front assistance bring about the hood to sit flush via whatever. What that does is does not administer the support to put tenboy on the release spring. The easiest method to open the hood is to acquire a buddy who is willing to aid you for a quick second, have you or him stand also and also pull up on the hood while the release is released and it must pop up choose normal. I uncovered this out the difficult way once my negative cable dropped off my battery while at REI in Littleton, 30 miles away from house and had actually to contact my roadside routine to gain a tow home
I have the very same problem... I shove something inbetween the grille and also the hood, like a sharpee marker, pliers, or something of that width, then pull the hood latch and it pops up. Hope that"ll occupational for ya.
Inquiry... is this becoming a problem currently through the 98 and more recent Rangers, more especially the 01- current??? There"s 3 for this reason much that have actually it.
No provide if the shims are gone. All you"ll do is press the entire truck down. Pulling up is the most basic means to pop it!

The hood is sitting fine, the latch simply doesn"t do anypoint as soon as I pull the cable.

Yeah same right here it"s driving me crazy sitting right here looking at these corners. Tomorrow it will be open one means or an additional, hopecompletely that means transforms out not to be permanent lol.
