Hood release 1995 Caravan

The hood on my Caravan no longer latches. I am not sure if all the parts are still attached. Do you have an image of the complete assembly attached to the cable or can you describe the parts that make up the assembly in front of the radiator?

Why do you think that the parts are no longer attached? Have you or someone else had it apart recently? Has it been damaged?

I am not sure if any parts are missing. I used the hood release today at -35 Celsius and it did not spring back like it normally does.

lube it, with some white lithium spray. it's probably just frozen.

to get to it, just take out the grill( a few phillips screws), and two 10mm bolts. it's a very simple latch.

i can't post any pictures here.

Mike, there was a spring to hold the catch mechanism in place. It had broken off, so I just replaced it with a utility spring. Works great now.
