Does anyone know if the C-7 hood can be opened another way if the cable breaks on the opening lever? There used to be a tool available that would do this on a C-4.

I wasn't aware the hood cable breaking was an issue. I've owned over 100 cars and have never had a hood latch cable break.

Sounds like a solution in search of a problem to me.

If I was to ever have a problem with it, I would let the techs at my dealership figure it out.

Actually, you just need to remove the engine/cradle then you can pop the hood from underneath. Just isn't a good option if you're in a hurry.

It is a valid question, maybe a little premature. I've had my 1980 for 21 years and I have needed the alternative method of opening the hood twice. Both times I was glad that GM had provided a means of opening the hood, that is easy to access and doesn't damage the car in anyway, in the design of the car.

Good idea, all you need to do to start is open the hood and…Ops!
