hood release

On a 95 buick regal there is a hood release on the floor by the drivers seat and when this one is pulled all the way up the trigger doesn't release the latch under the hood enough, is there an adjustment for this ?

There is an adjustment point for sure, Sometimes they are in the linear run of the cable but more often at the latch end. Trying a little lube at the latch assy. under the hood can be a lot of help.

aside from lubing the latch what also can happen is the rubber on the adjusting posts can be worn , they are on the rad support near each fender and you can adjust them out to give a bit more tension...hope this helps..
