SOURCE: Broken Hood Release
In short no there isn't, however it's most likely your plastic release lever is broken and not the metal cable, you need to open the cover over the release lever, there will be a cable you can pull using a gripper and it will release the bonnet, you can easily replace the plastic llever and it's reletively cheap.
Hope this helps, please don't forget to rate me.

On my golf,
long dead of truckbackupitis, the hood release was a plate in the left footwell wall about 4inch forward of the drivers door, it does not look like a handle, just like a cover plate

SOURCE: my mk4 golf wiper arms
Its most likely the wiper mechansim which rusts and jams. You need to take off the wiper arms by removing bolts and pulling off (quite hard). You then take plastic cowling off the car, start with a small knife passenger side and lever off, the rest will unclip as you pull. You will then see the mechanism. It is removed by 3 bolts, unhook the motor and pull the mech out. You will then see which parts are stiff and use a bit of WD40. You may have to take the whole thing apart and clean with wire brush. I tried but still didn't work so had to buy one from a scrap yard.
Hope this helps

remove the o/s/f indicator this can be done by putting a thin screw driver between the bonnet and wing to push the indicator release tab down. once the indicator is out of the way you can see the bonnet catch behind the headlamp use a torch to locate where the cable should be and pull the latch towards you. it should take you about 10 mins to do this
