Hi
So I am having difficulty opening my hood on my car. There is still resistance when pulling the lever so the cable is still there and nothing seems to be broken. So looked at newtis to find a description on how to adjust the cable but found nothing. Can someone here help on how to do it?
Thank you in advance

If you can get the hood open, spray the latches with brake cleaner, then lubricate them. They tend to get sticky over time and are likely then problem.

I agree with the lubrication but in addition perhaps loosen and adjust the latch ever so slightly. This has helped mine considerably.
