Jeep XJ Hood

Asked by Jun 05, 2018 at 06:49 PM about the 2000 Jeep Cherokee

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The hood latch cable is broken and I need to get under the hood to replace the
battery and such. I took out the headlights and a set off bolts on one side to
open it but the other set of bolts on the other side isn't accessible with any of
my tools and they are pretty rusted, how do I get them off and be able to open
the hood?

Where you have the grille off, can you get the hood latch assembly where the cable connects.

no all I can get to is the hook from the grille and it won't open it.

785 The model in this is a few years newer but it should be the same concept on how to open the hood.
