The hood latch on my Toyota Tacoma will not open. It is in the shop now as we speak and they cannot get it open. The cable release under the dashboard has slack in it and when I manually pull on it with...

Looking at the design of the hood you may have just enough room between the hood and the top of the front cowling to get a hacksaw blade in between. If you can, tape up both surfaces to try keep any scratching to a minimum then use the hacksaw attached to a handle (for leverage) to cut the latch. May take a while but Its worth a try. Paint touch up is a lot cheaper then a grill!

Tricky one this.
If you cant reach up from underneath and, using a screwdriver, flick the catch you will probably have to try and remove the grille.
You will probably snap part of the grille so be carefull not to cause too much damage.
With the grill away you will have access to the bonnet catch.
I assume the cable clamp has come loose for some reason which has caused the outer cover to move with the cable.
Fit a ne clamp screw and clip.

Hood release is broken...need to open hood

A hood release works with a cable that pulls the latch open. if you have a long flat head screw-driver you can try to spring the latch itself through the front grill.

you will need to locate the hood release cable behind the pull handle and pull the cable with pliers and once the hood is open you can rig something through the grill to open. But I would recomend replacing the cable or the pull release to keep others out from under hood.
