You will need 2 people to get the hood open. While you pull on the hood release cable have an assistant gently pound on the center of the hood until it pops up. If this does not work, inspect the hood release lever to see if the pivot broken, if so pull directly on the cable with a pair of locking pliers. After you get the hood open make sure to spray the latch with penetrating oil (WD40)

On each side of the latch there is an 8mm screw that can be removed through the front, between the hood and grill They are aprox 6" apart.
The latch itself has two locator pins that slide into the front suppoprt behind the grill.
After removing the two screws, gently pry the whole latch away from the support. The hood can be raised, taking the latch with it.
Access to the release lever is behind the latch. It is now exposed.
pull the tiny release lever toward the drivers side and latch will come loose. Good luck!

if you can get a pry bar or a screwdiver under the hood and push on the mechanism that the cable pulls the hood will open.then you need to replace the cable.

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
