#1 of 6 Can't get the hood open.
Nov 05, 2006 (3:08 am)
My 97 Safari van's hood used to be hard to get open. Someone would have to bang on the hood while I pulled the release. I sprayed some WD40 on it but now I fear the cable may have slipped through the clamp. I can't get it to open at all! All this is fixable of course, if I could just get the hood open! Any ideas on how to get the hood open that don't involve a torch??

Hope someone has info on this, we need to replace the exterior fuel door, as it's rusted out. But I cannot find one on the web or at the salvage yards. Any suggestions as to where in the world I can find one, Summit white preferred?

I have a 94 with the same problem... did you ever get an answer?
I have to replace the bulb in the driver side tail light, but since I cannot get the door open, this is impossible...
#5 of 6 Repairing the Hatch/Door

I had this problem, I pulled the plastic trim that fits around the back hatch off, then used a screw drive on each side of the hach near the bottom to pop the latches back to release the door. After I fixed the linkage, I was able to put the trim back without to much issue.
