anyone know how to unlock the hood latch from the outside on a 5th gen?

if not, do ya'll think exchangin your stock 5th gen hood plus $250 for an all-trac hood is a good deal?....

of course ...without popping it first...when it's close shut..i was lookin at it earliar tryna figure it out..there's a metal plate that's blocking me to get to the lock thats holding the hood down..i was wondering is there another way in popping the hood?

Sure... just manipulate the cable or the lock mechanism itself, it's a simple cable release. The cable runs inside the fender. Good luck.

Why exactly are you asking? Why would that question come in conjuction with a question about aquiring a different hood? :squint:

which fender exactly? driver's side? would i be able to get to the cable through the little corner light?...and exactly what do you mean by "manipulate"..cut the cable?

Why do you have to do this to begin with?

I'd suggest that no one else chim in on this.. it sounds pretty fuckin shady.. I'm certainly not going to help this n00b steal someones hood.. whether it be a celi on the street or in a junk yard..

Well, I personally have no more details than what I've said already, I've never had occasion to need to do that. Of course it sounds strange to me, hence the :squint: Seriously though, OP, why do you want to know how to do that?

I don't think there needs to be any further discussion on the removal of the hood from outside (it is too risky to post this info via open forum) The hood was desighed to be open from inside the car for a reason and if you need to do otherwise take it to toyota...

A trade and $250 sounds a little too much. Of course, I did buy mine from a junkyard for $50:-D

If anyone chimes in on how to do it, mods and admins have my permission to delete the answer. While this can be good to know if a cable snaps on someone, this question was asked in a shady way, and there is no broken hood mentioned.

since nobody is allowed to answer number 1. Id say 250+ old hood is a good deal if the AT hood is in good shape.

I know how to unlock the hood from outside the car on a 4thgen celica. I'm not gonna say, but it's the same on a 5th gen. (played with a neighbor's 5th gen too).


No, they won't join Ctech because they're over 50, don't have a computer, and would get hurt by our comments.
