When I pull the cable, nothing happens - but it still has tension. Any suggestions?
Toyoya quality! Sounds like the latch and/or the cable need to be lubed. Try having someone pull the release and smack the latch with a screwdriver to try to pop it loose, and once you get it open, make sure to lube it all up with some 3-in-1 lube on the latch and down the cable housing, and then pull the release a bunch to help move the lube throughout the cable length.
You don't need to open the hood, its a Toyota!
Probably has a recall.
thanks for the help bros; super late reply, but having one person yank on the handle multiple times while the other pulls up on the hood works. a bit of a ghetto rig job but it works
