You can try going up from the bottom behind the bumper cover, or thru the grille opening. You may be able to pull the hood latch with a hook such as a coat hanger or pry it with a crowbar.
You may have to have the bumper cover removed to gain access.

SOURCE: 99 chevy malibu hood release problems

We have the same problem with our malibu. What I found is that the hood release handle inside the car gets stuck on the housing around the driver's side feet. Check if your handle is getting stuck there too because I thought for the longest time that the cable was the problem.

SOURCE: Hood release cable isn't connected to interior hood release lever

Your going to have to use vice grips or pliers. Just pull hard till you hear the hood pop open or have a friend push down on the hood so you can pull in the hood cable easier to unlock the hood latch. Good luck and keep me posted.

SOURCE: I have a 95 Jeep Cherokee, the hood release cable is broken..help

HALLO
TRY WITH SOME HARD WIRE (WELDING WIRE) ABOUT 3MM THICK.
MAKE HOOK ON ONE END (5MM), AND IN THE MIDDLE, JUST UNDER THE HOOD,BETWIN HOOD AND FRONT GRILL, IN THE GAP YOU WILL SEE HOOD LOCK. IN THIS LOCK YOU WILL SEE SMAL HOLE. GO INSIDE WITH THE WIRE AND TURN IT (TRY LEFT OR RIGHT (DONT REMEMBER)), BUT HOOD WILL OPEN. HEPENED TO ME TOO TWO YEARS AGO.

The hood will not close all the way on my 2001 Pontiac Grand Prix. The hood release lever seems to be broken as well. Any ideas??


Adrian - I just experienced the same thing with my 01 GP. Seems to have been caused by the cold weather. If you can open the hood using the outside release, look down into the latch mechanism and you will see where the cable slips into a washer like device (dime sized). Use a screw driver to push the round piece with the cable in it towards the passenger side about a half inch. The hood should now close. If the spring on the latch mechanism is stretched you will have to eventually replace the whole mechanism. Sometimes just pushing it and spraying with lubricant will fix it for good - sometimes not. If not you will have to push it over each time you want to close the hood.
