use a coat hanger and go through grill and hook the hood latch. you can also lay under front of car with a few extensions and a rachet, and take out the bolts that hold hood latch. if both fail. remove grill if possible to get to hood latch. good luck !!
Hi. This is a hard one it depends on where it broke,can you cut the housing to get to cable core and pull with pleirs, if it snapped at latch then you will need to remove the grill or go from the bottom and try to hit the release the same wat the cable did,sometime if you grab the cable near the latch and pull hard it will open, good luck.
If there is still resistance when you pull the lever then the cable is still connected.Try having someone with a open hand slap on the hood while you pull the lever.Try the corners and work your way to the center.If you do get it open lube all the latch parts.Well hope this helps and good luck.

Usually a strong coat hanger will snag the lug the cable attaches too. You will need to bend a 3/8 end J hook from the coat hanger and snag it from the drivers side of the latch to pull on this lug horizontally
' If the hood is trashed just zip a hole into the hood were that latch is located with a disc grinder and a cut off wheel instead
if you pried the hood up enough to see the latch then you should be able to reach the cable with a pair of pliers or vise grips, or you could see if you can reach the bolts holding the hood latch and remove it.
you may want to check where the cable attaches to the handle inside the vehicle and see if it is still connected.perhaps the release handle is broken and you might be able to pull the release cable with pliers.
you can often release the hood latch from under the car, or through the grille, by reaching up to the hood latch mechanism with a long screwdriver or pliers, or a piece of coat hanger, whichever works in your particular case. G/L
Your hood release cable has stretched or broken somewhere between the knob inside and the latch under the hood This is not a fun fix you need to trace the release cable to the break n the line sometimes it is possible to unhook cable from knob and pull on wire sleeve to pop hood best of luck
